Belly up to the lunch counter for homemade migas, tacos, and award-winning menudo, then step up to the pastry counter for piedras, novias, cemitas, and capirotada. The American choices draw raves, as well.
Offering catering and delivery as well as serving out of Wright Bros. Brew & Brew, Rosen's keeps it classic but adds some clever twists to the typical bagel/spread combo, like lime-poblano-scallion schmear or a veggie sandwich with sun-dried tomato tapenade.
