After working as general manager for Picante for the past 13 years and at Tampico before that, Roberto Cervantes has struck out on his own, opening Blue Agave Mexican Restaurant in the shopping center at the corner of Pinhook and Southpark roads.
The Mexico City native says he's learned the ropes and was ready to launch his own concept. "I was tired of making money for someone else," notes Cervantes, who has lived in Lafayette for the past two decades. The 82-seat restaurant opened March 13, serving specialty dishes like Milaneza Rellena, a breaded, fried chicken breast stuffed with ham, cheese and a Spanish sauce topped with chipotle sauce and served with Mexican rice, sour cream and salad; or the Tabasco Style Tilapia, a filet stuffed with seafood and baked with herbs, wine sauce and cheese. The latter is served with Agave rice and shrimp tortilla soup.
Try the Blue Agave (the cactus-looking plant from which tequila is made) margarita or top shelf margarita, the restaurant's special blend of Jose Cuervo Especial Gold Premium Tequila, Grand Marnier, and Cointreau, served hand shaken, on the rocks or frozen.
House margaritas are $3, domestics $1.75 and well drinks $2.75 during Monday through Friday Happy Hour, which runs from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Let ’em know and you could win a $250 night out.
