The brown paper at the old Boukies space has been solidly in place for months, blocking out any wandering eye hoping to catch a glimpse of its replacement, Rosie's, a Mexican restaurant from the Vic's and Hundred Acres team. But late on Friday the giant floor-to-ceiling windows were wide open (hello semi-al fresco dining) as a man mopped the floor. Inside, it looks like construction is done and things are just about ready to roll, minus the furniture. A rep confirms that, saying the restaurant should open this week. When it does, co-owner Marc Meyer will be drawing on his cooking lessons with Mexican cooking doyenne Diana Kennedy. Expect chiles rellenos, whole roasted fish, and antojitos, or snacks at the bar.
