As its name might suggest, Agave is a tequilería as well as a restaurant. The tequila list features more than 80 selections, most available as single pours or eight-ounce "carafes," and the menu suggests a tequila to pair with each dish. Duty precluded me from sampling this selection; even very good tequila, sipped slowly, has an interesting effect on me.
(I recall -- dimly -- running through the streets of Sheffield, England, one night with my arms outstretched, pretending to be an airplane. Though that tequila wasn't very good, and I certainly didn't sip it.)
This week I visit Agave, the new upscale Mexican restaurant in Forest Park Southeast's Grove neighborhood. Check back here tomorrow for my review.
