Agave & Rye, a modern Tequila and Bourbon Hall, with its initial roots in Covington, Kentucky, will bring its unique menu and dining experience to the renowned Ritzi Auto Body site in Hamilton, Ohio, summer 2024. To be celebrated with a groundbreaking ceremony in tandem with the city in October 2023, this exciting expansion represents a significant milestone for both the city of Hamilton as well as the Agave & Rye brand. Each Agave & Rye opening marks the continuation of aggressive expansion, brought to life by independent restaurateurs Yavonne and Wade Sarber, and now, Hamilton guests will be able to experience their vision to bring Agave & Rye to guests who crave an adventurous escape.

Agave & Rye’s newest location promises an EPIC dining experience like no other. Located on Main Street, in the former Ritzi Auto Body site, guests can expect the same bold and imaginative menu that has made Agave & Rye a beloved culinary destination. From gourmet tacos bursting with diverse ingredients to over 70 varieties of tequila and over 70 varieties of bourbon gracing the menu, as well as specialty cocktails and a series of select wines and beer, Agave & Rye is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of flavor and creativity paying homage to audacious tastes, fusing street favorites with EPIC tacos.

The menu itself sets Agave & Rye apart from the traditional restaurant with street favorites, as well as epic tacos – such as “The Crown Jewel”, featuring truffle mac n’ cheese and lobster, and the “Swipe Right”, featuring honey lime grilled chicken, sweet & spicy bacon, and aged white cheddar. Signature craft cocktails offer a mix of modern and traditional, from Jalapeño Pineapple Margaritas to Mango Habanero, Bourbon Slushies. Fresh, made-from-scratch recipes with only the best ingredients available offer inventive ways for guests to enjoy expertly crafted food, bite-by-bite and sip-by-sip.

“We are thrilled to bring the Agave & Rye experience to Main Street in Hamilton,” said Yavonne Sarber, Co-Founder and CEO of Agave & Rye. “Hamilton has been incredibly welcoming to us, and we are eager to expand our footprint in this vibrant, hardworking city. Our team is dedicated to providing our guests with an EPIC dining adventure that combines bold flavors and innovative cocktails. We’re creating something that causes guests to want to leave their homes to experience something amazing and one-of-a-kind.”

The City of Hamilton is thrilled with Agave & Rye’s announcement of the groundbreaking next month. City Manager Joshua Smith says, “Agave & Rye is a missing piece in our Main Street puzzle. With great coffee at True West, farm-to-table options at The Farmer’s Collective, food trucks at The HUB, ice cream at Village Parlor, craft beer at Fretboard Public House, pizza at Richards, great American fare at Billy Yanks on Main Street, drinks at The 513 Bar, and other fun options like Smoochies and Main Circuit, we will now have EPIC tacos and margaritas. Not only will Main Street act as an entertainment district for Hamilton, it will be an entertainment district for Southwest Ohio and Miami University students.”
