Rosa Mexicano (Lincoln Center)

In 1984, Josephina Howard showed New Yorkers how elegant Mexican food could be with the first Rosa Mexicano, on Manhattan’s East Side. 16 years later David Rockwell, who designed this Lincoln Center offshoot, showed how dramatic a restaurant could be. He devised a massive waterfall with whimsical figures to accompany diners up the stairs to the second floor. A waterfall has since been a part of this restaurant company’s steady expansion. There are now Rosa Mexicanos across the country, paying tribute to Howard’s legacy and spreading the gospel of high-class huitlacoche. (61 Columbus Ave. at 62nd St. 212-977-7700.)
