The new restaurant Agustin Brasserie at Mercado San Agustin doesn't open until mid-February, but cocktails will be available in the market's courtyard starting today! Hooray! From the press release:
The Agustin team also includes some of Tucson’s restaurant superstars; like Pete Hoge, award-winning bartender/mixologist who ruled the bar at Kingfisher Bar and Grill for over 15 years and has over 30 years of experience in the restaurant business. He has spent the last few months fine tuning the cocktail list and is thrilled to be managing the bar program at Agustin, “the cocktail menu is all about old-school, hand crafted, classic cocktails”. As in the creation of the food menu, the cocktails at Agustin are all made with the finest, freshest ingredients available. The final result is an exceptional cocktail list featuring classic libations such as the Pimm’s Cup and Sidecar, as well as New Orleans’ favorites like the French 75 and Big Easy.
While a grand opening is planned for mid- February, those who would like an early preview of the bar offerings at Agustin can enjoy some of Pete Hoge’s cocktail creations in the courtyard at the Mercado Beginning on Thursday, Feb 2, daily from 3pm-7pm until official opening.
