For grown-ups, the promise of a robust margarita is usually incentive enough to make it Mexican night. At any of the lively Rosa Mexicano locations you’re sure to get one, along with braised pork belly and seared diver scallop tacos ($14.50). Kids are just as primed for a good time thanks to a Young Amigos menu ($9–$11.50) highlighting market-fresh ingredients such as house-made whole-wheat tortillas layered with chicken, mixed veggies, tomato sauce and queso fresco, and the opportunity to mash their own guacamole tableside, all of which come with a juice box or milk and a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert. For tots with food allergies, there are extensive gluten-free menus for both lunch and dinner.
