308 Agave, located at 308 Front Street is tastefully chic, with understated elegance. Serving up delicious tequila, 308 Agave is the next best, newest thing to our little island. When you get tired of Duval and all its drunken galore, head down Front Street for something a little different.
It’s about time for Key West to offer a greater variety of places to schmooze and dine, and I guess restaurateurs have been listening. Recently, Key West has gained quite a few new non-Key West-y spots like Le Petit Paris and Solo American Bistro, which is a welcome refreshment especially, for us locals. Sometimes, it’s nice to go to a place that feels more ‘Tinsel town’ then, –let’s say–tattered-town.
Now, more about this wonderful tequila bar. With incredibly inspired drinks like Rockin’ Rojo, and ‘The Apple of My Eye’ completed with such unique ingredients as House Made Apple purée and Celery Bitters I was more than intrigued.
We stopped in to try some of their delicious drinks and far. I decided to try their Agave Wheat Beer while my other went for the traditional Margarita.
The decor was more urban cool than Key West, with a nicely lit back bar, and plenty of space. The walls were lined with old photograph Tequila advertisements, giving it a nice classic feel.
Usually, he’s not the biggest fan of Margaritas, he tends to find them overpoweringly sweet and artificial. But, he was floored by how good this one was. Nothing fancy, nothing fake just 100% Blue Agave Tequila, Agave Nectar for sweetening, and Lime Juice. It was the real thing. Pure deliciousness. While, the Agave Wheat Beer was equally light, tasty, and unique.
We were starved and welcomed the presence of the lovely and cheerful Rachel carrying continuous plates of yummy Roast Pork Tacos. Nothing extravagant, these were Mexican style Roast Pork Tacos with a little cabbage slaw, Pico, and Sour Cream were bursting with simply delicious flavor and perfectly cooked meat.
From the first step in to our last sip of Margarita perfection, 308 Agave leaves a lingering impression, that beckons you to come back for more.
Yes, 308 Agave I will return very soon.
