a'Verde Cocina Tequila Cary


Inspired Fresh Flavors straight from Home

a’Verde is a Mexican restaurant inspired by “Top Chef” alum Katsuji Tanabe’s desire to bring fresh, vibrant, delicious, and fun flavors to the table. Drawing on his Mexican heritage, the menu is full of memories and stories of family recipes and experiences. Don’t expect traditional Mexican fare, while dishes will be familiar and comforting, these flavors will be on trend with North Carolina’s best seasonal ingredients or the latest hot culinary or beverage movement. a’Verde’s desire is to give friends a relaxed, creative, and exciting experience.
