Since I seem to be having a Mexican themed sorta day, even though Cinco de Mayo is still a-ways away, here is a tasty tidbit that a little birdy chirped in my ear today. Rosa Mexicano is heading to Chevy Chase! And no, I don’t mean Chevy Chase as in the former Clark Griswold careening around in his avocado-green station wagon (although that reference is somehow appropriate here). I am talking about the swank, semi-urban Maryland neighborhood that borders the Friendship Heights region of our nation’s capital. According to my sources, here is the skinny on the new location:
“The upscale, modern Mexican restaurant just signed a lease for a 7,300 sq. ft. space formerly occupied by Bambule Bistro (@delectabelle is sad to see you go Bambule) at 5445 Wisconsin Ave. It will be the third Rosa Mexicano in the DC area (with locations already in Penn Quarter—above—and National Harbor) and the 13th nationwide. Look for a November opening.”
Yes we will INDEED be looking forward to this addition to my workplace stomping grounds. Welcome to the hood, Rosa…you saucy, Spanish, guacamole-donning seductress!
