Walking into El Agave, you get the feeling that there might be more tequila under this roof then there is in all of Mexico. The chic Old Town outpost claims to have the largest selection of tequila in the United States, most of which are available for tasting in their encyclopedic "Tequila Museum." Unsurprisingly, the spirit is the star of the mixology-based cocktail list, shining in standout libations like "Tequila Mule" (reposado, fresh passionfruit and lime juice, ginger beer, agave nectar, presented in a traditional copper mug). Food offerings take an upscale approach to tapas, ranging from homemade shrimp and crab empanadas, chorizo, and cocoa nib mole.
