Moving on Up: Rosario’s North updates menu and décor

A veggie entree even carnivores may swoon over: Rosario’s quinoa chile relleno

Maybe it’s the curse of the sizzling skillet. Gracias a dios they don’t call these chunks of pork by the name “fajitas.” But they also don’t treat them with the same rough-and-tumble gusto as many local sources. (Hint: the fattier parts are best, naturally.) The accompanying onions and green bell peppers are also a little limp. Fortunately, the platter is served with a generous amount of pretty good guac, so the total package with tortillas, both flour and corn, is fine.

Postres are also unpriced on Rosario’s menu. Just so you know, the nutty bread pudding with cajeta and a blueberry/raspberry compote was $6.95 and worth every centavo. The Mexican vanilla ice cream may have been unremarkable, but everything else clicked—a sound you might actually be able to hear, as RN is (somewhat) less acoustically punishing than its older hermano.
