Open since 1984, Rosa Mexicana was one of the first high end Mexican restaurants to gain A-List status in New York. Their version of tableside guacamole is unbeatable in this town and menu items like daily ceviche, crab flautas, and filet mignon make the spot stand out from standard taco fare. The space is large and dramatically designed, making it great for accommodating parties as well as big families. Ceci Johnson, a regular, says, “I’m a Southern California girl, born and raised, and growing up in San Diego keeps me craving great Mexican in NYC—hard to find on the East Coast! But Rosa Mexicana is a weekly favorite of my husband’s and mine. It’s kid friendly and the flavors and great service have us coming back for more over and over again! Not to mention the fact that the handmade guacamole is sensational.” With three locations over the city, this is one spot too convenient to miss.
