Masa y Agave at Rosa Mexicano
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
More than 30 years—and 17 global locations—after the debut of its Upper East Side flagship in 1984, Rosa Mexicano heads downtown for the first time with a vibrant bi-level outpost, divided into a Guadalajara-inspired dining room upstairs and this lower-level agave cantina. At the marble bar, John McCarthy (Greenwich Project, Cedar Local) stirs concoctions showcasing Latin spirits curated by certified mescalier Courtenay Greenleaf. Cocktails include a fiery cucumber-basil margarita with Pueblo Viejo blanco tequila, a house-infused mescal and tonic, and an Oaxaqueña featuring mescal and hot bitters sweetened with corn milk and agave. Corn pops up frequently on the snack menu as well, with house-ground masa serving as a base for sopes piled with pulled beef and black beans and for tortillas nestling lamb marinated in chili de arbol and steamed in avocado leaves.
