Fodor's Review

The area is a bit touristy so you might not expect to find such authentic regional Mexican fare at this comfortably upmarket restaurant. Standout options include quesadillas filled with mushrooms, baked halibut in chipotle sauce with rice and vegetables, and chicken in a slow-simmered mole sauce. There are more than 2,000 tequilas to choose from, displayed throughout the brick-walled space (even on shelves suspended from the ceiling), which make El Agave the largest "tequileria"

in the United States. The collection includes artisanal tequilas dating to the 1930s and some infused with jalapeño chilies.
