El Agave Restaurant and Tequileria will bring traditional “Hispanic-Mexican” cuisine, award-winning tequilas, and indigenous flavors to Del Mar Plaza this November. Since 1996, El Agave has been serving San Diegans its trademark “Mexican Nouvelle Cuisine” from its original location in Old Town. The new Del Mar location, El Agave’s third in San Diego, will also feature a comprehensive tequila museum stocked with over 2,000 premium tequilas.
Known for its bold, authentic flavors, El Agave’s menu is inspired by the cooking styles of ancient cultures, including the Aztecs and Mestizos. Popular menu items such as a variety of mole sauces, which blend flavors native to Mexico with ingredients of Spanish and Arabic orgin, crispy chalupas, tamales, enchiladas and the infamous filet mignon in tequila with a red wine reduction sauce, will join the menu offerings at the Del Mar location.
“We’ve been waiting for just the right location to expand into other popular areas of San Diego,” says Carlos Aceves, director of operations. “Del Mar Plaza couldn’t be a more perfect location in which to blend our unique menu offerings with a beautiful ocean view location.”
In addition to serving authentic Hispanic-Mexican food, El Agave is equally well known for its selection of rare and premium tequilas. Housed inside the restaurant, the Tequila Museum features a collection of over 2,000 tequilas from all over the world. Included in the museum is the restaurant’s own award-winning Tequila Agave Artesenal. For tastings in the tequila museum, guests are seated amongst a variety of agave tequilas and served tastings from the featured tequila flight. (www.elagave.com)
