Just a little over one year after opening his Baldwin Village restaurant, Agave y Aguacate, co-owner and chef Francisco Alejandri has quit the kitchen. He broke the news yesterday in a message posted to his Facebook page, but it’s unclear whether or not the move was voluntary. Alejandri (who previously worked at Chiado and Scaramouche) got his start selling Mexican street food snacks in Kensington’s El Gordo food court. After gaining popularity there, he left the cramped quarters in the summer of 2012 to (eventually) open his spot on Baldwin. The now chefless restaurant is temporarily closed and, according its voice messaging service, will be that way until further notice.
