NASHUA – The Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce, along with Mayor Lozeau and several city aldermen, celebrated the expansion of Downtown Nashua’s dining scene by cutting the ribbon on Agave Azul Mexican Cantina, Main Street’s first Mexican restaurant, last Friday afternoon.

“Nashua’s downtown dining scene has long been a jewel in our city’s crown, and the opening of Agave Azul further enhances this reputation,” said Chris Williams, President & CEO of the Chamber.

“We’re tremendously pleased to add some diversity of cuisine to Main Street.” he said.

Joining the Chamber and Mayor Lozeau at the ceremony were Aldermen Brian McaCarthy; Alderman Diane Sheehan; Alderman Rick Dowd; Alderman Mary Ann Melizzi Golja; and building owner and landlord, Rich Lannan.

Williams introduced Pedro Aguirre, whose family owns the restaurant at 94-96 Main St. Aguirre also serves as the general manager of the restaurant.

“My parents are with me today, along with several members of our family, and we’re so pleased to be a part of the Nashua community through the addition of Agave Azul,” Aguirre said.

Aguirre thanked the crowd of 50 people and city dignitaries gathered outside the restaurant to witness the ribbon-cutting ceremony, and invited them inside to enjoy the signing of two large murals that dominate the interior of the restaurant. The murals were painted by local artists from Positive Street Art: Manuel Ramirez and Cecilia Ulibarri.

Williams introduced Mayor Lozeau who led the official cutting of the ribbon outside the main entrance of the restaurant. “Our downtown is so appealing to many Nashua residents and visitors, and Agave Azul is yet another great reason to come downtown,” Lozeau said, before leading the crowd in a countdown while she cut through the ribbon.

With its opening, Agave Azul becomes one of the largest restaurants downtown, with a seating capacity of 210 people. The restaurant offers the only “made-from-scratch” guacamole station in the city, allowing patrons to enjoy their guacamole made right at their table. The restaurant also boasts more than 30 types of tequila.

Agave Azul is open for lunch seven days a week starting at 11 a.m., serving dinner on weekdays until 10 p.m. and on weekends until 1 a.m.
