Food Network Star Marcela Valladolid at Agave

My friends at Gilt City really know how to throw a party.  On May 4th, they invited members to spend the evening at Agave, a West Village staple, to enjoy a lively taco pop-up dinner for 150 guests created by the lovely Marcela Valladolid, the host of The Food Network’s Mexican Made Easy.  The adorable and bubbly Marcela bounced around chatting with diners and posing for photos, while they sipped refreshing Sauza margaritas that complimented her array of light and fresh tacos, while dancing to the beats of a live mariachi band.  The space was packed with groups of pretty girlfriends and handsome gentlemen getting both tipsy and full.

 “It’s easy to lose sight of what traditional Mexican cuisine is when we’re surrounded by inauthentic dishes such as overflowing burritos and nachos drowning in liquid cheddar cheese,” Chef Valladolid writes.  Her tacos were simply delicious.  The tamarind-braised veal shoulder with roasted apple and tomatillo salsa was a crowd pleaser.  I devoured the tequila marinated steak taco with avocado and tomatoes, covered in melted cheese.
