BIZNOTE: Restaurant space’s new tenant serves up signage

Thanks to the texter who just sent that photo. Back on December 9th, we reported that city files revealed Agave was taking over the Junction space vacated by Fresh Bistro last spring. They never replied to our followup inquiry, but now signage has appeared in the windows. Agave has locations in Queen Anne and Issaquah.

    With locations in Queen Anne and Issaquah, I can already tell what kind of customers this place will cater to. Have fun paying for over priced tex-mex. This is just another, probably more expensive Cactus. Catch me at a taco truck, Chukis, or a mezcaleria.

    Just what West Seattle needs is more mexican food?!

      Okay, fine, so you’ve had your fill of Mexican (since, after all, there is only ONE type of Mexican cuisine, apparently). What exactly are we missing over here in West Seattle, and what are you going to do to facilitate it?I always see these complaints, but never any solutions. My guess is well see those types of restaurants (low labor, ingredients cost) as long as they are busy.

    So disappointing. I guess we can hope something interesting takes over the vacated Vine and Spoon space.

    If you don’t like the restaurants that are going in. Dig DEEP into your pockets and open they type of restaurant you want.

      No kidding! Always are a bunch who are quick to biatch about something, but they obviously are not the type to solve anything.

    Welp, at least it isn’t another pizza place?!

    Is this the same franchise that’s in Kent Station, or different?

    • WSB January 30, 2019 (12:54 pm)

      Interesting, there’s a different website listing Redmond and Kent. Different logo too. Will have to do more research to see if they’re related to Queen Anne/Issaquah.

    Their website says they have vegan options so count me in!! Can’t wait!

    I have eaten at their restaurant on QA and liked it. Can’t wait for them to open in West Seattle.

    That’s one of the weirdest menus I’ve ever seen.Pomegranite chile rellano?$13 breakfast avacado toast?Is there really a demand for this stuff? 

    • dawsonct February 1, 2019 (8:00 pm)

      That’s actually not an unusual ingredient in chili rellenos, but it IS unusual for Americans who have cut there teeth primarily on Tex-Mex cuisine. Rellenos en Nogada, with walnut cream sauce. it’s sort of a celebratory dish, and one I’ve never seen carried regularly by any Seattle-area Mexican restaurants.—Anyone who pays $13 dollars for smashed avocado on toast deserves to be parted with their money.

    I agree that it sounds like another Cactus type American fancy Mex. I agree we need something different. How does Ballard get all the cool hot restaurants? I know the answer – they have more rich residents willing and able to eat out all the time. Sigh.

Sorry, comment time is over.
