My meal was quite tasty--a pork flatbread with pineapple, and a simply-grilled swordfish. The service was cheerful and effective. These days, Rosebud is sporting a young/hip vibe: relaxed, casual, lots of folks bustling around the bar. My only dissatisfaction: the price. I had two courses--no...More
