Location: West Village, 140 7th Ave. South (between 10th St. & Charles St.)
The scoop: We were having a girls’ brunch at Agave. One of the girls is a new mommy, so there was a baby in our party as well. Agave seemed like a good spot for our group because they offer unlimited drinks and don’t force everyone to get the deal and because of the size of the restaurant.
Agave is pretty large and gets packed during brunch, so making a reservation is your best bet. There is outdoor seating, a bar at the front of the restaurant, and a very big dining area at the back of the restaurant. The back of the restaurant is huge! You would never know if you were seated at the front of the restaurant as we were. It was a warm late summer day, and the sun was beating down on us through the front windows. We had an ample amount of space and even enough room for a stroller.
Bottoms up: The unlimited deal is $24.95, with your choice from select egg dishes and two hours of bottomless mimosas, wine or the Agave traditional margarita.
The majority of us ordered mimosas. They weren’t strong, but they included a slice of orange. We each had a decent amount of refills.
Chew on this:
Huevos Rancheros / With blue corn tortillas, beef & pork chili and a golden fried egg
Not as filling as your usual messy Huevos Rancheros, but it was the perfect amount of food to consume without making me feel overly stuffed. Was it the best Huevos Rancheros I’ve had? Not really, as it seemed to lack something. The beef and pork chili had a prominent flavor. I liked the taste, but I would have liked more pico de gallo or something else to balance the dish. The menu didn’t mention sour cream, and not being a huge fan of sour cream, I just scooped it off to the side. The fried egg was fine and the guacamole didn’t seem to have much of a taste, but I think it didn’t stand out as the chili flavor dominated the dish. It was almost like having chili tacos.
