Blue Agave has new owners, Brian Acquavella and Nicole Callender. They closed the Federal Hill restaurant right after Cinco De Mayo for renovations. They plan to have it back open on May 17. In the meantime, they're asking the dining public to weigh in on what the new Blue Agave should be like.
A message on the restaurant's website says: "We plan on making some changes, but want to make the right ones. Please send us a message via email, Facebook, Twitter, or if you're feeling adventurous stop by in person to give us your feedback. With your help, and our energy, we hope to better serve our customers, and Federal Hill!" -- Brian Acquavella.
Michael Marx opened Blue Agave in 2000 in the former McHenry Theater. The nouveau Mexican cuisine -- carnitas, quail, sea bass. and chocolate-ancho bread pudding -- and tequila program were novelties then for Baltimore, and Blue Agave took off.
Marx sold Blue Agave to Elizabeth and Chuck Atwood in 2006.
