at Rosa Mexicano

Rosa Mexicano, located on Southie’s waterfront, is celebrating the new season by rolling out its picnic tables at its first annual Fall Harvest Dinner.  The menu will feature highlights such as Fall Guacamole with Toasted Hazelnuts and Pomegranate Seeds; Wild Mushroom and Chorizo Salad with Butternut Squash; Grilled Lobster and Scallop Tacos with Papaya and Pumpkin Seeds; and Ancho Chile Pumpkin Cheesecake.
All dishes will celebrate local sourcing like jalapenos and tomatoes from nearby Ward’s Berry Farm, frisee from Sparrow Arc Farm or apples from Lookout Farm, and given a dash or two of Rosa Mexicano’s authentic Mexican flair. Even chipotle-infused local honey makes its way into La Abejita cocktail made with Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Mezcal, crème de cacao and fresh lemon.
