A recent renovation has expanded seating both inside and out, giving more patrons the chance to try Agave’s tasty ceviche made with local halibut and hearty Carne Asada. Pair your selection with a choice from the restaurant’s list of 125 tequilas—or visit on Wednesdays for Flight Night to sample four different tequilas. Then plan to take a cab home.
