You guys know that I took a trip across the waters for my birthday; well during the tiny vacation, I shimmied around Miami a day or two as well. My friend and I stopped for a few bites to eat after a day of shopping of the sorts in the Lincoln Rd area of South Beach.
We stopped by a casual but swanky spot called Rosa Mexicano. There's one here in Atlanta, in Atlantic Station, but I've never been. We arrived at the joint just in the nick of time because shortly thereafter, the wait list began.
The restaurant is quite sultry in appearance; very attractive and a perfect fit for Lincoln Rd and Atlantic Station. Though the lights are low and the seating hints of "tre' posh", it is slightly family friendly (a crying baby would ruin everyone's mood).
On the way to our table, I noticed a cart filled with freshly cut vegetables. I didn't give it a second thought until the server asked if we wanted to try their signature guacamole. (We indulged)
My friend loves guacamole so I decided to try it (again). I must say that this guacamole was heavenly. It was made with fresh avocados, onions, tomatoes, lemon, and lime (probably something else too but I forgot).
We also had this skillet cheese dip type of thing, I forgot the name of that too (maybe the margaritas). I do remember the Chicken Tortilla Pie
Upon entering, I assumed that this was a standard, casual, dining place but no ma'am, the bill set us back $96 (including tip). Have your coins in order before taking a taste of Ms. Rosa Mexicano.
I will try Rosa Mexicano again.
Have you been? Does this sound like a place that you'd like to try?
