Good Mexican food?

Friends want to take us to Rosa Mexicana. Does anyone know anything about this spot?

    Ditto on the Guac. As far as I'm concerned, it's the only really good thing there. The prices are pretty ridiculous in my opinion but I'll leave that judgement up to your range. If I had to go for Upscale Mex in this town, I'd hit up the new Mexicana Mama Centro or the underrated Mi Cocina.

    Still, good guac.

      Zarela is my choice - 2nd Ave and 51. for quiet sit upstairs,
      best margaritas in the city - excellent specials, fabulous desserts

      Yes, it's noisy (westside location - sit upstairs) and pretty good - the guacamole, made at the table, is the star attraction.
