Amid the enticing aromas of piquant peppers and sizzling carne, a team of chefs present a menu of fresh, south-of-the-border eats. Begin an evening of jaw aerobics with a choice from Blue Agave’s 16 appetizers, such as chicken wings spun in chipotle or Cholula sauce, or spicy shrimp, which come stuffed with fluffy crab meat to facilitate cozy naps. Once appetites are piqued, patrons can tuck teeth into Mexican staples such as the stuffed relleno, a coterie of poblano chiles swaddled in cheese and filled with shredded pork, charro salsa, and tomatoes. The jalapeño cheese fillet offers wardrobe inspiration to diners preparing for the next royal wedding by flaunting a hat of fresh crab-cake- and pepper-infused cheese. As patrons chew through solid eats, house margaritas cool down overheated tongue buds and facilitate candid conversations with an alchemical blend of Azul Reposado tequila and triple sec.
Mahogany hues usher patrons into Blue Agave’s lively interior, illuminated by criss-crossing string lights, flickering flat-panel TVs, and honey-toned luminaires descending beneath a network of exposed ventilation pipelines. Granite tabletops prop up patron’s elbows as they rest haunches in both straight-backed and curvaceous booths, and a gallery of mirrors furthers the already spacious interior’s sense of depth, dimensions, and vanity.
More than 50 brands of tequila line the stone walls of the bar at Blue Agave, where staffers shake up specialty margaritas with ingredients such as agave nectar, Grand Marnier, and fresh pineapple juice. These drinks sweeten the menu of Mexican and southwestern dishes, from traditional tacos and enchiladas to a poblano-pepper-topped burger that showcases the kitchen’s creative flair. Dishes are rated from mild to spicy to very spicy, so even if diners choose to sit on the outdoor patio, they don’t have to worry about their breath accidentally igniting the clothing of passersby.
Within the restaurant, punched-tin lanterns and hanging lamps dangle from exposed ceilings, and mirrors in bejeweled frames pop from light festive colors.
