Rosa Mexicano, First Avenue

paperpest Apr 4, 2007 10:49 AM

I looked at reviews here and on menupages and didn't see any reviews for 2007. The reviews for 2006 and 2005 were filled with complaints about over priced food and small portions. When it first opened I enjoyed the place. Has anyone been to the First Avenue branch lately?

    Haven't been in years...I agree with what you wrote about it being too pricey for what it is. I think there's much better Mexican food to be had.

      I agree its pricey but it does have one of my favorite dishes in the entire city. The lamb shank wrapped in banana leaves and grilled is amazing.
