On Wednesday October 24, Rosa Mexicano will roll out the picnic tables for its first annual Fall Harvest Dinner, celebrating its renewed commitment to utilizing hyper-local flavors and farm-fresh ingredients throughout the year. Crafted by Culinary Advisor Jonathan Waxman, 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.
Whether it’s cucumbers and tomatoes from nearby Lois Produce, mushrooms from McDowell’s farm or pears from Mountain View farm, the dishes will celebrate local sourcing and seasonality with 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.
