Mexican | Union Square, Manhattan

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Rosa Mexicano is our go-to restaurant in the Union Square neighborhood. It never disappoints, from its cordial service, creative dishes, delicious food, and--if you come for a late lunch, you'll have a couple of hours during which the restaurant is uncrowded, and you can have quiet conversation at a table in the corner. Try to find that anywhere else! More

For dessert a chocolate mouse with coffee gelato and a lemon, blue berry, tart in a graham cracker crust. Everyone was very gracious. Our server, Alina, was excellent. More
