CORNWALL – On Saturday, July 23, Azul Agave reopened their doors after being forced close a few months prior. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held to celebrate their new beginnings at their location 2576 US – 9W in Cornwall and was attended by local, county and state officials from across Orange County as well as family and patrons.
“Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we were forced to close our doors for some time. The first two years hit us really hard, as it did many businesses. But for a new business, it was particularly difficult to weather that storm. However, we are very excited to be able to bring traditional Mexican food like the kind I grew up with my abuela (my grandmother) when I was growing up. I want people to get a taste of our food and our culture and explore the many colorful dishes and provide an experience that stays with our guests,” said Mauri Valle, Co-Owner and Head Cook.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring Azul Agave back to Cornwall and to be able to re-open to such excitement and enthusiasm. We have a brand-new menu to share with our guests, some new delicious cocktail options to help combat this heat and our amazing staff are here to welcome you to our new and improved Mexican dining experience. We also intend to host an assortment of different events for people to come and enjoy,” said Kathie Vasquez, Co-Owner of Azul Agave.
“I have had the pleasure of being a patron of Azul Agave for the past few years and I was saddened to hear that one of my favorite Mexican restaurants were closing. Many businesses have fallen on hard times, since the pandemic. It is harder to find people to hire, which makes it very challenging to run a business. I am happy to see that Azul Agave is back in business. The tacos de birria and their delicious margaritas are amongst some of the best in the region and their staff have always been wonderful. I wish them all the best in their new beginnings,” said, Orange County Legislator, Kevindaryán Luján.
