The New York restaurant is headed to San Juan
Rosa Mexicano, the contemporary Mexican restaurant from Josefina Howard, which first opened in midtown Manhattan in 1984, is set to open to San Juan, according to chef Roberto Treviño, who shared the news at Taste of the Islands, an annual food festival at W Retreat & Spa-Vieques Island that benefits young Vieques residents.
Chef Roberto Treviño of Budatai, Casa Lola, Bar Gitano, and El Barril on Ashford Avenue in San Juan, and his restaurant group Out of This World, is bringing Rosa Mexicano to The Shops at Paseo Caribe, a new shopping, entertainment, and residential complex overlooking Condado Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean.
The latest outpost of the Rosa Mexicano chain, which has 14 restaurants in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, and elsewhere, is slated to open in February 2013 and will serve the same menu, including guacamole en molcajete, which is made in a lava-rock mortar and prepared tableside. The San Juan location is the second international location of Rosa Mexicano, with the first one in Panama City, Panama.

Restaurant news: Just think of changes in Stillwater as the opposite of fusion
There has been a shake-up in Stillwater. The sous chef and bartender at Marx Fusion Bistro have left the popular spot to open their own restaurant. Christopher Durant and Stanton Schmitt are setting up shop right down the street in the historic First National Bank building, former home of Shane’s on Main. They’re calling it First National Green Room.
The first-floor space has been gutted and will be given a modern feel with Italian chandeliers and an open kitchen. The menu will be comfort food such as steaks, fish, chops, pasta and a few Indian favorites as a tribute to the time when Durant cooked in Puerto Rico. “We’re looking to appeal to locals,” says Durant. “They want something nice but don’t want to go too extreme with what they eat, and I really made it a point not to have anything on my menu the same as Marx.”
As far as the rumor circulating about a brouhaha when Durant told Marx chef/owner Mark Hanson he was leaving, Durant says it’s not true.
“I told him what I was going to do, and I’m not going to say he was happy about it, but there was no big fight.”
There goes another neighborhood. Blue Plate Restaurant Co. just added an Uptown address to its restaurant empire, which includes Highland Grill in the Highland neighborhood of St. Paul, Longfellow Grill in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis and Edina Grill in Edina.
Stephanie Shimp, Luke Shimp and David Burley have taken over a former Blockbuster Video on 21st and Hennepin Avenue in Minneapolis and are turning it into another of their upscale diners. They hope to be open by July. No name has been chosen yet, but the partners are thinking of paying homage to Lowry Hill (Lowry Grill has a nice ring to it). This one will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and offer a late-night menu in hopes of attracting a bar crowd. The space will have an open, modern feel, and plans include a patio.
“It’s actually west-facing,” says Stephanie. “It’s our first patio that faces the right direction.”
GROUNDS FOR RESENTMENT
Don’t let the door hit you on the way out. That’s the message Amore Coffee owners Cathy Hauser and Nancy Breymeier took away last week when their longtime Milton Mall landlord, Exeter Realty, notified them they had 60 days to vacate the premises.
A fixture at that mall for 18 years, Amore Coffee is the last independent coffee shop on St. Paul’s Grand Avenue. They have to be out at the end of March to make way for Anthropologie, which is negotiating for the space, says Hauser.
“There wasn’t even a thank you for being here for 18 years,” she says. “That’s sad.”
Hauser and Breymeier had an inkling their days were numbered when their lease wasn’t renewed a few years ago. Last year, they opened another branch on Smith Avenue in West St. Paul just to cover their bases.
Hauser compares losing the Grand Avenue spot to a terminal illness. “You know someone is sick and going to die, but when it actually happens, you’re devastated,” she says. “I knew this was coming, but now that it’s here, it makes me sick to my stomach to give up my flagship store.”
PEARSON’S GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
Pearson’s Edina Restaurant has called it quits after 38 years. The family restaurant at 50th and France served its last plate of Swedish meatballs Sunday. The new owners plan to divide the space. One side reopened as the 50th Street Cafe and serves breakfast and lunch, including the five top-selling dishes on the Pearson’s menu.
In May, the other side will reopen as a separate restaurant. No further details are available.
The Pearson family had a long history in the Twin Cities. Paul Pearson Sr. and his wife, Helen, opened their first restaurant, the Town Talk Cafe, in 1938 at 38th Street and 23rd Avenue South in Minneapolis. In the 1940s, the Pearsons built and operated the Town Talk Diner at 27th Avenue and East Lake Street in Minneapolis. In 1956, Pearson’s Drive-In opened at Hiawatha Avenue and Minnehaha Parkway. Almost 20 years later, the family opened the Pearson’s at 50th and France, first as a coffee shop and later expanding into a full-service restaurant.
Stella’s Fish Cafe in Uptown is taking things up a notch once again. Last summer, the Minneapolis seafood spot built a second rooftop deck &mdash directly above the first to best the competition. Since they can’t go any higher, the restaurant is getting ready to roll out a raw bar and sushi. Chef Chad Rasmussen says he’s working on an extensive menu, which he plans to debut in April. “If you’re going to do it, do it right,” he says. “We want to be the place where people come for their raw bar experience.”
IN THE PINK
New Yorkers have long been going to Rosa Mexicano for tableside guacamole, pomegranate margaritas and authentic Mexican food. Now, it looks like Minnesotans might be doing the same thing. A branch of the upscale restaurant is on the drawing board to debut this summer at City Center in downtown Minneapolis, in the former T.G.I. Friday’s. (The T.G.I. Friday’s in Roseville called it quits last week. Stay tuned for what will go into that spot.)
Founded in 1984 by Josefina Howard, Rosa Mexicano quickly became a New York City destination for its authentic, regional cuisine. Now, there are nine locations, including Miami and L.A. The restaurant did not return calls for elaboration, but it looks like diners are in for a surprise. According to the website: “We are Rosa Mexicano and we are not the Mexican you expect.” Hopefully, that’s a good thing.
Fabulous Fern’s Bar & Grill on St. Paul’s Cathedral Hill celebrates the big 20 on Feb. 26 with an open-house party for friends, customers and other neighborhood businesses. Festivities start at 7 p.m. and include free appetizers and chances to win door prizes.
Barbette/Cafe Wyrd turns 20 on Tuesday and is inviting guests to raise their glasses, share memories and eat cake throughout the evening. The party starts at 4 p.m., and a DJ will start spinning at 10 p.m.
Local favorite Surly Brewing turns 5 this month. To celebrate, the brewery is hosting appreciation parties and special brews at bars and restaurants that sold the first beers. In St. Paul, they include Happy Gnome (Tuesday) and Groveland Tap (Feb. 28). For a complete list and details, go to surlybrewing.com.

Llegó a contar con cuatro locales, cada uno de ellos de mayores dimensiones. Se arrancó con el flamenco y con la salsa. Sus hijos e inclusive sus sobrinos hicieron carrera en el baile. L legaron a competir de forma profesional por todo el mundo.
Se formaron para poder dar clases, y con Damaris en plena adolescencia se inauguró la sala New York. El negocio familiar ha derivado a algo más entretenido y menos sacrificado, una propuesta muy atractiva para bailarinas de salsa, y bailarines de flamenco, bailes de salón, etc. H abitualmente ir a la New York no es solo por aprender a regular el ritmo, asimismo es para conocer nuevas amistades. H an salido de ahí muchas parejas.

E l Primer Puerto la veía medrar y Natalia le sacaba la vuelta al ballet en toda celebración familiar.
El estilo que baila lo creó ella misma. De ahí que, afirma que no anda mirando los vídeos de otras bailarinas para copiar sus pasos. Ella desea tener un estilo propio. T odas y cada una de las noches, en diferentes salsódromos de la urbe, se juntan los bailadores profesionales de salsa como ella. Para pasar el rato. Cuenta Natalia que es ahí donde verdaderamente disfruta bailando salsa.
La Casa de la Salsa es el point de los salseros bailadores.
«Un viernes hallas a gente que baila tan igual que…» y «Eso de hacer cosillas con la mano… como que no.»

Breakout Brands: Rosa Mexicano
With a 16-year gap between the opening of the first two Rosa Mexicano locations in New York, it can’t be said that the owners of the upscale Mexican restaurant were in any particular rush to replicate the concept elsewhere.
However, once the decision was made in 2000 to grow Rosa Mexicano beyond its New York roots, the chain moved forward briskly, opening another 14 locations in the past 12 years. This year the chain plans to introduce three more restaurants, including two international outlets in Puerto Rico and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
“It took time to determine whether the brand had legs in other markets,” said chief operating officer Jason Berry. “But we knew we had something special.”
One of the challenges the upmarket Rosa Mexicano has had to face since Josefina Howard founded it in 1984 is overcoming Americans’ lack of familiarity with true Mexican cuisine.
“A lot of people think Mexican food is all tacos, burritos and nachos,” Berry said. “But that’s really Tex-Mex. Rosa Mexicano is authentic, pan-Mexican cuisine”
Arlene Spiegel of Arlene Spiegel & Associates, a restaurant consulting firm in New York, observed that despite consumers’ confusion over what constitutes genuine Mexican food, Rosa Mexicano has established its own niche as it expands.
“The Mexican market segment still has a class system,” Spiegel said. “You have quick-service chains like Taco Bell all the way up to one-off, fine-dining independents. But Rosa Mexicano has always hit the sweet spot, with authentic flavors and an ambience that celebrates the culture. It definitely has staying power.”
When it comes to positioning itself in the marketplace, Rosa Mexicano incorporates culinary elements generally found in upscale restaurants. For example, while guacamole is recognized as a Mexican menu staple, Rosa Mexicano has elevated its status by preparing it tableside.
Individual restaurants also try to partner with local purveyors, another upscale trait that helps guide menu development. California units might offer locally foraged mushrooms, for example.
Even recognizable items like tacos are treated in a more upscale manner. Signature selections include a popular Baja Fish Taco — which features locally sourced fish — and a Duck Tinga Taco with guajillo chile salsa.
Meanwhile, the chain — which is owned by Rosa Mexicano Restaurants and Goode Partners, a New York-based private equity firm — is continuing to plot future growth domestically and internationally.

And these days when people go out, they want to have fun and be in a unique environment and get something they can’t get at home. Mexican provides that.” it’s celebratory.”
