There’s nothing like tradition, especially at holiday time, but sometimes it’s fun to shake it up a bit. Rosa Mexicano, a restaurant group based in New York, with an outpost in the Seaport, has been celebrating Mexican Passover at all of its locations for 10 years. CEO Howard Greenstone, who is of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, works with his chefs to create a different menu every year, combining the influences of Sephardic Jews, who make up the majority of those in Mexico, and the food his grandmother made when he was growing up. Included in Rosa Mexicano’s Passover menu this year will be chipotle matzo balls with pozole, a hearty soup that originated in Jalisco. These gorgeous matzo balls explode with flavor. If you’ve always stuck to the tradtional matzo balls, Nana’s chicken soup is in for a surprise.
