This April, Sandy Springs is getting an extra dose of flavor with the opening of Casagave, where the tequila is top notch and the tacos are one-of-a-kind.Named after the Spanish word for house and the plant that produces tequila, the idea behind Casagave is pretty simple: a welcoming local place with quality Mexican cuisine and libations. While Casagave’s tequila selection may not be the largest in town, it’s certainly one of the best. The team here has compiled a handpicked selection of top shelf and award winning Tequilas, including George Clooney’s bestseller, Casamigos. This wide range of tequila can be enjoyed straight up, or in one of Casagave’s signature margaritas, made fresh every day with homemade margarita mix and agave nectar. The rest of the bar is rounded out with an eclectic selection of signature cocktails and premium liquors that will satisfy all kinds of thirsty customers.
Thankfully, Casagave’s stellar bar program is matched by an equally awesome menu of tacos and Mexican bites coming out of the kitchen. Head chef Claudia Cortes has over 15 years of experience cooking all sorts of ethnic cuisines – from Thai to Vietnamese and Greek – and she incorporates all of those elements into her delicious taco creations, all while staying loyal to her roots in authentic, traditional Mexican cuisine. For example, her Veggie Tacos are made with a unique and zesty ginger remoulade that tastes unlike any Mexican food you’ve had before. And if tacos ain’t your cup of tea, then worry not, because Casagave’s signature burger is made with a mix of ground beef and spicy chorizo, for the ultimate fusion of American and Mexican flavors.
