El Agave Restaurant & Tequileria Ownership Opening New Dining Concept In San Diego's North Park

June 1, 2024

The owner of San Diego's 28-year-old El Agave Mexican Restaurant & Tequileria is opening a new dining concept in North Park. 

Juan Carlos Gomez opened El Agave Tequileria at the entrance to San Diego's historic Old Town in 1996. The restaurant offers a menu of upscale, regional Mexican food complimented by an extensive collection of over 2,000 tequilas and mezcals. In 2014, a second location of El Agave opened atop Del Mar Plaza but shuttered two years later. Gomez also once operated Iberico Spanish Bistro in La Jolla, although that restaurant closed in 2014 after a little over a year in business. 

El Agave ownership is in the process of taking over the space currently occupied by Tachido Sushi (previously Sabuku Sushi) on the border of North Park and University Heights. There is no word on what exactly the restaurant will be, as the concept is still in development, but we were assured it would not be another branch of El Agave. The eatery will have a beer and wine license. 

El Agave's new restaurant concept is expected to open in late 2024 at 3027 Adams Avenue in San Diego's North Park. For more information, visit elagave.com.
