A new Salt Lake City restaurant is serving elevated Mexican flavors, from their "famous carnitas" to refreshing margaritas.

Dig in: Sol Agave, a Mexican chain restaurant that originally launched as a food truck in Southern California, opened its second Utah location on 660 S Main St. on New Year's Eve.

What to try: The restaurant's margarita flight ($23) features four kinds of agave-infused libations: watermelon basil, cucumber cilantro, tamarindo and spicy mango.

  • The "taquiza" appetizer ($19) included steak, carnitas, chicken and shrimp street tacos.

The vibe: The upscale eatery features dark lighting and floor-to-ceiling windows, making the space feel expansive and airy. It's the kind of restaurant to take someone you'd want to impress.

My thought bubble: I'm relieved I no longer have to drive to Utah County for excellent Mexican cuisine.
