Since its opening last fall, Black Agave has been lauded for its scratch cuisine and cocktails that celebrate the cuisine of both Mexico and Texas. As the season heats up, the Mercer Boardwalk restaurant is adding new menu items perfect for our Texas summer.


The Mex-Tex Shrimp Cocktail ($19.99) includes chilled shrimp, cucumber, tomato, roasted corn, peppers, onion and celery served in a zesty tomato broth. The Taquitos de Camarones ($13.99) showcase crispy tortilla-wrapped shrimp served with Baja slaw and a jalapeño aioli. The Picadillo Chile Relleno ($17.99) reinterprets a traditional favorite and includes a chorizo, potato and Oaxaca cheese-stuffed poblano with house-made salsa ranchera, rice and beans.

There are some exciting additions to the cantina menu as well. A new spicy, jalapeño margarita celebrates a classic cocktail in a more contemporary way. And, recognizing the sophisticated palate of the Black Agave diner, the restaurant has updated its wine list to offer an array of new selections chosen specifically to pair with the restaurant’s cuisine.

Black Agave gives guests an elevated, contemporary Mexican dining experience. Black Agave serves beloved heritage recipes with bold flavors created by Chef Thomas Archer, who uses only the highest-quality ingredients. The restaurant also prides itself on its unique cocktail program, with flavors that complement the restaurant’s food.
