The Red Agave Restaurant & Cantina has been on the top five list of restaurants in the Eugene area for at least five years. We hadn’t been out for a nice dinner since last year, due to our busy schedule and babies. But, with the help of a friend, we were able to venture out last night where we were served by the owner, Brian Hebb, and chef Mike Meyer a simply fantastic meal.
ed Agave was originally opened and operated by friends Katie Marcus-Brown and Sara Willis. They also owned El Vaquero at the 5th Street Market and Asado. They sold all of these restaurants, and at the end of 2010 started a new venture in south Eugene called June. Brian Hebb purchased the Red Agave in 2008 and has made his own mark on the decidedly Central American cuisine, with chef Mike Meyer. Brian has introduced a seasonal focus to his diners, along with interesting dining experiences like his Longtable Dinners. In 2010, Brian entered into a partnership to open Cowfish, a coffee house by day, nightclub by night, on Broadway in downtown Eugene. Read more
