Rosa Mexicano to Offer Mexican Passover Menu

From a press release:

Rosa Mexicano debuts its Mexican Passover menu, crafted by Culinary Advisor Jonathan Waxman, April 6 – 13. Drawing inspiration from his Jewish heritage and current culinary trends in Mexico City, Waxman has created a menu including dishes such as Red Snapper Gefilte Fish; Tecate Pulled Beef Brisket Tacos; Date, Lemon & Piñon Cake with Honey and a special Passover Sangria with Manischewitz© reduction.

Spring and traditional Passover ingredients meet Mexican flavors and influences in offerings like Matzoh-Breaded Chicken Breast and a tropical twist on Haroset made with tangerine, pomegranate and coconut. Part of Rosa Mexicano’s annual Flavors of Mexico series, the Mexican Passover menu will be available at all three Rosa Mexicano DC area locations.

  • I went last year and was very disappointed. The noise was so loud that i couldn’t even speak to my colleague. The food was dry. The service was poor. I won’t go back.
