Agave-come-lately tequila bars generally talk big, but lack the depth to back it up -- like claiming you're the #1 Three's Company fan because you own a ThighMaster. For a truly vast selection, check out Amaranta Cocina Mexicana
An upscale-yet-in-a-Valley-mall restaurant serving traditional Mexican fare, ACM boasts LA's most staggering collection of 100% blue agave tequilas: over 375 varieties -- one for each day of the year, plus eleven on Sammy Hagar's birthday. Served in flutes, the offerings are arranged by category (Anejo, Reposado, Blanco) and include new classics (the citrus-y Tezon Reposado) and limited runs from old masters (Don Julio "1942" -- either the year of DJ's founding, or a dyslexic shout-out to Christopher Columbus). The crown jewel will be the $175-a-shot Tres-Cuatro-Cinco, a 600-bottle-run aged in three stages: four years in French Oak, five years in Canadian White Oak, and three years in oak whose origins are mysterious, but probably aren't Oakland.
On Sept 24, ACM'll begin offering a monthly $35 dinner pairing the restaurant's tapas with one tequila brand's entire lineup; whether that means three tequilas or six, your double vision'll convince you you've swallowed 6-12, and that your date looks weirdly like Mr. Furley.
