A sneak peek at a couple of restaurants due to open soon.
First up is Agave at 4198 Manchester Avenue in Forest Park Southeast's the Grove. Agave will feature higher-end Mexican cuisine and a wide range of tequilas. Coby Arzola -- of Chuy Arzola's Arzolas -- is behind the venture.
The grand opening was originally scheduled for next week, but delays have pushed that back. Brown paper covered the windows when I stopped by this morning so I couldn't see how far along work has progressed. I'll let you know the new opening date as soon as I learn it.
Speaking of Mexican restaurants: I stopped by Mi Ranchito (887 Kingsland Avenue) for lunch yesterday and learned that the popular U. City spot is expanding to the storefront next-door. It didn't look like work had started in earnest, though.
Work seems to be progressing well. More details as I learn them.
