AGAVA Restaurant

AGAVA is a Southwest-Inspired restaurant featuring a wood-fired oven; seasonal menu; farm-to-table ingredients; and a warm, fun, community-minded atmosphere. AGAVA bases their concept around great local ingredients and a great staff. The creative menu has been put together by Executive Chef Andre Jacquet. Prior to working at AGAVA, Chef Jacquet has worked at Buddakan, House of Blues, and Emeril’s, before relocating back to upstate New York. One of the central design and functional elements is a wood-fired oven with an eating bar in the main dining space, serving up flatbreads and a range of other fire-roasted cuisine. The bar is a destination of its own: from the agave flights & signature cocktails to a physical space you have to see for yourself. AGAVA features one of the most unique interior spaces in the central NY region, drawing from both southwestern design elements like “latillas” and a desert mural painted by local artist Bill Benson. At the same time the owners made a concerted effort to incorporate local and historical elements into the plan. Being the former home of the East Ithaca Train Depot, the restaurant has a wall devoted to black and white photos of the station and rail line as well as period maps referencing the original home of the building.
