Taste Chef Jamaal Taherzadeh’s Sustainable Modern Mexican Cuisine
Paired With Five Specially Selected Avión Tequilas


Beloved modern Mexican restaurant Border Grill Mandalay Bay is continuing its new monthly event – Border Grill Patio Series – with Tour of Tequilas, a celebration of the popular agave-based spirit on Thursday, May 19 from 6 – 8 p.m.

Designed by Executive Chef Jamaal Taherzadeh to bring diverse, one-of-a-kind events to Las Vegas locals and visitors, the Border Grill Patio Series fuses the restaurant’s signature tastes with outside elements – literally and figuratively. Taking place on the renowned outdoor patio, each month features an event that incorporates something not usually offered at the restaurant.

Highlighted by five varieties of Avion, often referred to as the “world’s best tasting tequila” brand, Tour of Tequilas will encourage guests to open their palates and explore the complexities of the different tequila classifications. With opportunities to try them straight up and in specialty cocktails, all drinks will be paired with unique menu items from Chef Jamaal’s kitchen including: Charred Mackerel Crudo with watermelon, pickled watermelon rind and fresh chile; Cauliflower “Paella” featuring Valencia style cauliflower, spring peas and chorizo oil; Wagyu Short Rib with Ancho braised beef short rib, barbequed carrots and sunchoke puree; and a Churro Ice Cream Sandwich made with salted cajeta ice cream and tequila berries.

A sneak peek at a couple of the Avión cocktails guests can expect to try include: Elderflower Sage Margarita with Avión Silver, fresh orange, lemon and lime juices, elderflower liqueur, simple syrup and fresh sage; Bitter Truth anchored by Avión Reposado, fresh lime juice, orgeat syrup, campari and mint; Sweet & Spicy featuring Avión Añejo, spiced agave nectar, grapefruit bitters and fresh lime; plus more.

A limited number of tickets are available now for just $49 per person here:
