Boulder CO: Agave Mexican Bistro & Tequila House

Mike and Linda took me to Agave for a wonderful dinner. Like so many newer restaurants, it is in a low-key strip mall location that hides a very nice interior. The restaurant is decorated in low key colors, natural but modern, and features a fireplace.

We started with a guacamole that was made at our table by our waiter. As you can see, he added a flourish to the presentation. It tasted great, with a complex flavor from the variety of things he added to the avacado.

I had seafood tamales for my main course. The seafood was cooked perfectly and the taco body was moist while still holding together. I must say that the most amazing part of the main course was the beans. The dominant taste was clearly beans, not some additives, but that taste was rich and luxurious in a way that I don't normally associate with beans. It's amazing how much flavor can be had from beans by someone who knows what they are doing.
