Agave is my favorite restaurant, and I live in New Mexico, born here all my life (If you're from New Mexico, you'll recognize that idiosyncratic saying). Agave's traditional New Mexican dishes are the real deal; the posole, the green chile stew, the red chile enchiladas, even the salsa are as authentic as what you can get in New Mexico. But Agave will appeal to a more sophisticated palate than what you will find in traditional New Mexican recipes and menus, hence "southwestern eclectic", and this variety is why I long for another meal at Agave. In addition to the delicious food, it's very hard to find a better tequila and wine lists. The southwestern atmosphere is accented tastefully by good southwestern art, including R.C. Gorman lithographs, photographs of New Mexico landmarks, and authentic New Mexican curios. The service is attentive and friendly, a reflection of the astute business sense and of its owner and founder, Jack Sobel. Agave is where it’s at for an enjoyable dining experience.
