El Agave Restaurant and Tequileria to open at Del Mar Plaza in November

El Agave Restaurant and Tequileria will bring traditional “Hispanic-Mexican” cuisine, award-winning tequilas, and indigenous flavors to Del Mar Plaza. Since 1996, El Agave has been serving San Diegans their 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. Scheduled to open in November 2013, El Agave will be open for lunch and dinner, seven days a week, and will feature a special Happy Hour menu and tequila tastings.

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,” said 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 their 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.

For more information, and to see the lunch, dinner, wine, tequila, and Happy Hour menus, please visit www.elagave.com.  El Agave will be located on the  Plaza Level of Del Mar Plaza, across from Pacifica Del Mar, at 1555 Camino Del Mar.
