Dinner at Agave

Saturday night we celebrated birthdays. Keith and Melisa were born 2 days and one year apart. Keith on April 24 and Melisa on April 26. We went to Agave in Cabbagetown for dinner. It is located in the Cotton Mill General Store and has been named the Best Southwestern Restaurant in Atlanta. Everything was delicious from the Margaritas and quesadilla appetizers to the dessert platter. More on that later.

The special was flounder and was chosen by Cliff and Melisa. I opted for the  Red Pepper Salmon Filet ...(Pan seared fresh Chilean salmon with sauteed  julienne zucchini, squash, & carrots, served over a roasted red pepper sauce with grilled asparagus) which was cooked to perfection.

Keith, the steak lover since childhood, (He ate his way across Canada and through Alaska at the age of 8 on steak.) had

Tenderloin Medallions ...Fresh tenderloin filet sliced and pan-seared over a roasted tomato, garlic & chile tequila puree, accompanied by Yukon Gold mashed potatoes, fried cayenne onions and grilled zucchini

There were six choices for dessert including flan, chocolate mousse, key lime pie, peanut butter pie, cheesecake and a flourless chocolate cake. How to choose ..... normally Cliff and I share a dessert and so do Keith and Melisa and the kids have ice cream. Well, Agave has a seventh selection: a dessert platter with 6 full size portions of all six desserts for less money than buying each one individually. Amazing!!!! We opted for the platter and everyone had a taste of everything and voted for their favorite. Key lime pie won the contest - just fabulous.

I know that I sound like a commercial for Agave but I promise that I have no affiliation with them. Just a very happy and contented customer.
