Agave Uptown Restaurant Review

: Colorful plates at this upscale Mexican restaurant feature authentic Oaxacan flavors from executive chef Octavio Diaz, complemented by a large menu of specialty cocktails with a focus on mezcal. A pretty, 32-seat sidewalk patio is well-suited to the lively people-watching and food-and-cocktail culture of Oakland's Uptown neighborhood. Look for the chef's mole, blended from a secret family recipe, available for sale at the restaurant.
