(Sharon Cantillon/News file photo)SNYDER, N.Y. -- A Mexican restaurant is hoping the fourth time's the charm for a Snyder building that has hosted a succession of restaurants over the past 16 years.

Don Agave opened last month at 4548 Main St., just east of Harlem Road, in the space best known as the longtime home of the Squire Shop men's clothing store.

Benderson Development Co. bought this building and the adjoining structure in March.
The Squire Shop, best known for its Buffalo-themed ties, closed in the mid-1990s. Starting in 2002, the space was home to Bistro Vite, a casual breakfast and lunch stop; Brodo, a purveyor of soups and light meals; and then Squire on Main, the fine dining restaurant. Mulberry's had eyed the space for a second location but that deal fell through earlier this yearDon Agave, which opened on Cinco de Mayo, has a varied Mexican menu that's heavy on fajitas, enchiladas, quesadillas, tacos and burritos.

The restaurant is open six days a week and features a full bar with a curated selection of tequila and jumbo margaritas. The restaurant's liquor license was filed in the name of Sean Macaluso. He founded the Mac Groups social marketing firm, located in the same building, and he had opened Squire on Main.
