More good news for the winter-weary: a veteran Mexican restaurateur plans to offer authentic Mexican tacos and more on Elmwood Avenue by mid-February.
Sergio Mucino has been turning 765 Elmwood Ave., the former Blue Fin Asian Bistro, into Agave. It's smaller than his other Buffalo restaurant, Don Tequila on Allen Street, and will have a smaller menu, he said.
But that menu will include Mexican specialties not available in Buffalo now, including tacos al pastor (chile-marinated pork with pineapple) and soups like posole and menudo. There will also be more vegetarian offerings, like black beans, and vegan choices as well, Mucino said.
The place will have about 50 seats and a full liquor license, he said.
Lots can stop a new place from opening, but mid-February is the target, he said.
