    You're a long way from home, little buddy.
    Last month, Redmond lost a longtime spot for tacos and tequila--the Las Margaritas at 17106 Redmond Way in Bear Creek Town Center. The place had been around for decades, and had remained essentially stuck in amber since the 1970s.

    But owners Julian and Federico Ramos and their sister Faviola (who also own Agave Cocina & Tequilas in Issaquah) decided that, since a couple things have changed about Redmond since bell-bottoms and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band were huge, maybe it was time to give the old place a little bit of a facelift.

    And a total change in everything else.

    So last month, Las Margaritas went dark, and the brothers and sister decided that they were going to replace it with something a bit more in keeping with modern tastes and styles--meaning "hand-crafted cuisine" that's "preservative and lard free, organic whenever possible" and decidedly more modern. It'll still be a Mexican restaurant, of course (and a big one, too, seating more than 200), but just a different kind of Mexican, offering beer-braised black beans and homemade tamales, chile rellenos, and halibut enchiladas.

    The new-old space, which will be called Agave Cocina & Cantina, is scheduled to reopen April 5.
