The tortilla's circular silhouette makes the corny disk a handy companion during ultimate-frisbee tournaments, ultimate-compact-disc swaps, and ultimately cyclical discussions detailing life's oddly timed progressions. Round out a meal with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Southwestern Fare at Agave.
Chef Richard Pang infuses Southwestern influence into Agave's innovative, maritime-saluting menu. Wrap phalanges around the grilled corn on the cob slathered with chipotle lime butter and queso cotija, or take a crack at quesadillas uniting Maine lobster, mango pico, and melty, melty cheese ($17). The slow-braised beef, mushrooms, and tres quesos take a tasty nap inside a tortilla in the beef machaca enchiladas ($18), and the chili-crusted pan-seared ahi tuna—with smoked tomato chutney, green olives, and caper relish ($23)—speaks to seafaring souls as though it were a seductive mermaid or gossipy oar.
Amid adobe walls and spruce-fir-latticed ceilings, diners can watch pedestrians while sipping one of many libations from the restaurant's drink menu. The spirited selection features more than 50 tequila options as well as a variety of beers and hand-shaken cocktails, such as the Hot and Spicy—a mouth-sweltering mélange of jalapeño-infused tequila, triple sec, fresh lime juice, and jalapeños garnished with a dash of never-ending friendship ($10).
