This week I visit the loft-district Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurant Rosalita's Cantina (1229 Washington Avenue, 314-621-2700).
Here's where Rosalita's conflicted personality begins to reveal itself. There are entrées you wouldn't expect to find in a burritoquesadillachimchanga joint, such as the duck leg and thigh coated in a rich, smoky mole sauce and roasted. But there are also burritos, quesadillas and chimichangas. The guacamole has a lovely bite of lime juice and luscious chunks of avocado. The chile con queso is straight-up melted white American cheese. And so on.
Visit the RFT restaurant page late tomorrow afternoon or check back here Wednesday morning to see what I think.
