An infamously tough table at the no-reservations Rose’s Luxury just became easier to attain, at least for a patron with $500-plus to spend.
Chef/owner Aaron Silverman has teamed up with nonprofit World Food Program USA and eBay Giving Works for a charitable auction; the restaurant always donates 25 cents per customer to WFP. The prize: two reservations at the white-hot restaurant, a free meal, and a 22-karat gold-gilded platter signed by the culinary team. Winners are asked to cover their own alcohol, with their bid wholly going to provide school meals for children.
Bids have already started—at the time of this posting the highest is $510—and run through November 30.
