    As consulting chef for Vuelo Mexican Grill, the James Beard nominated Chef Estee brings his approach to fresh ingredients, authentic flavors and attention to detail to every dish served at the restaurant. Vuelo specializes in hand-crafted Mexican cuisine made from scratch.

    The family-owned restaurant’s cuisine is Classic Mexican with Latin/South American flavors and twists. 

    Azuñia is smooth, clean craft tequila with authentic flavor from the local terroir. It is the exclusive export of Agaveros Unidos de Amatitán and its second-generation, family-owned-and-operated Rancho Miravalle estate, which has created exceptional tequila for nearly 20 years. Made with 100% pure Weber Blue Agave grown in dedicated fields of the Jalisco lowlands, it is harvested by hand and the organic agave is roasted in traditional clay hornos to ensure authenticity and depth of flavor. It is finished with a natural, open-air fermentation process and bottled on-site in small batches using a consistent process to deliver field-to-bottle quality.

    That evening’s festivities will be highlighted with Latin music presented by Tampa’s DJ Domi starting at 5 pm. 

    Vuelo Mexican Restaurant is located at 17641 Bruce B Downs Blvd in Tampa. For additional information go to http://vuelomexicangrill.com.
