Agave Cocina & Cantina adds Kent Station location
Contemporary Mexican Cuisine
For Immediate Release: May 22, 2011 Kent, WA
Julian Ramos, founder of the popular Agave Cocina & Cantina restaurant in Redmond is opening a second location at Kent Station, (Kent, WA). The site, which is on Ramsay Way, across from The Ram and Green Valley College is a rustic, brick walled space with high, open ceilings defined by massive steel beams. There is a cozy bar, open kitchen and gracious interior seating. Two fire places and two patios (one year-around) flank the entrance leading to the restaurant’s welcoming reception area.
Mexican art and handy-crafts acquired by Ramos from San Cayetano, near Guadalajara (Jalisco) Mexico, where he was born and raised will farther enhance the already attractive space. “We had been looking for an additional restaurant location for a while, Julian states. When we open Agave Cocina and Cantina Kent Station in May, guests will enjoy Agave’s food and hand-picked sipping tequila selection in a strikingly distinctive setting.”
Menu items such as wood fired, Mexican Torta Sandwiches, with achiote marinated chicken breast, bacon, pepper jack, lemon scallion aioli cilantro-jicama slaw, tomatoes, pickled red onion, guacamole on a ciabatta roll, join a large selection of appetizers, tacos, burritos, entrees, sides and desserts. The menu avoids preservatives, lard and is almost 90% gluten free and organic whenever possible. For summer, the Grilled Sirloin Steak Salad, romaine, tomatoes, avocado, corn, roasted red peppers, radish, toasted pumpkin seeds, quesa fresca and creamy, cilantro lime dressing will be a favorite.
Specialty cocktails feature Agave’s impressive selection of premium, hard to find and limited production tequilas, highlight scratch Margaritas in fresh lime and fruit combinations. Also offering a great selection of tap micro brews, that will rotate often. Owner Julian Ramos is a tequila expert in his own right, Agave Restaurants host tequila tastings regularly.
