Tres Agaves, the Mexican restaurant and tequila bar in Roseville, will undergo a name change later this month to TRES: Tequila Lounge & Mexican Kitchen. Its parent restaurant in San Francisco has already adopted the new name, with this location at the Fountains shopping center (1182 Roseville Parkway, Roseville; 916-782-4455) switching over to TRES by March 18 - right in time for a tasting dinner featuring Casa Noble tequila.
According to Fountains spokeswoman Heather Atherton, the name change is being prompted by a split in Tres Agaves' ownership, with two original founders leaving to start their own Tres Agaves tequila brand. With the name change to TRES, the restaurant will add seven or eight new tequila brands to its lineup, which already features more than 150 tequila bottles. TRES' kitchen will also debut a new 10-spice blend and some tweaks to its menu. More information will be coming soon, and "Appetizers" will keep you posted.
