Agave del Scottsdale, a new upscale, authentic Mexican restaurant will open in Scottsdale in early 2019.

According to a press release, Agave del Scottsdale will bring its dining experience to Valley restaurant goers to the former Butters space in the Mercado del Lago plaza at Hayden Road and Via de Ventura.

The almost 4,000-square-foot space will be fully-renovated and feature an open-air dining room, indoor-outdoor bar, large patio and exposed open kitchen, the release said.

The restaurant is inspired by Mexico City, features colors, white marble, wooden tables and ornate lighting as the owners’ ancestors hail from different regions in Mexico including the Yucatan, Mazatlan, Puebla and Veracruz, which is reflected in the restaurant’s menu.

Plus, the executive chef is relocating from Mexico City to Scottsdale to lead the kitchen, the release noted.

“We are excited to bring Agave del Scottsdale to the community and share what we are passionate about – genuine Mexican food, diverse tequila, refined hospitality and entertainment,” said Hector Soto, general manager of Agave del Scottsdale, in a prepared statement.

Agave del Scottsdale will operate from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., weekdays; 7 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays for breakfast and close at 10 p.m. and 9 p.m. respectively.
