Cava Money, Money, Money, Money.......

Im interested in peoples opinions of Cava.
My girlfriend and I eat there and I found it to be SO expensive!

As an example the steak (Flat Iron 4.99 a lbs.) with white puree was 16 dollars.
While it was good, the portion size was far to small for that price point!
I know what some is going to say "its Tapas" fine, make the price half.

Some simple math.

If this dish had a 30% food cost (Industry standard) that would give the house 4.80 to work with, fair. That amount of money could purchase almost 1 pound of Flat Iron (Whole Sale price 4.99) The plate being tapas has only 2 maybe 3 oz. at which equals a cost of .93 cents.
Let say, the white puree (Celery Root & Heavy Cream) cost the same as the Beef to make it simple another .93 cents.

Total cost 1.87
Food Cost about 12%

Wheres the Value?

Am I Crazy?
