Check your internet connection and poise that clicker: Rare reservations for a night at Rose’s Luxury begin at 11 on Tuesday morning. Chef/owner Aaron Silverman offers online bookings for New Year’s Eve throughout the restaurant, except for second-floor bar stools which will be f̶o̶u̶g̶h̶t̶ ̶o̶v̶e̶r̶ ̶l̶i̶k̶e̶ ̶c̶a̶b̶s̶ ̶a̶f̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶l̶a̶s̶t̶-̶c̶a̶l̶l̶ reserved for walk-ins.

The menu also differs from regular service: a $95 prix-fixe that includes a choice of three small plates and one “family-style” portion for every two guests, plus dessert, a pour of bubbly, and mystery prizes. A $50 deposit per person is required while reserving, assuming you’re lucky enough to get to that point.

Can’t score a table for NYE? Rose’s announced a second charitable auction for a reservation that includes free food and a signed plate. The last one garnered 30 bids and went for a whopping $1,075, which benefited World Food Program USA. Offers for the current two-person table are up to $390 and run until December 11.

Good luck all around. I’ll be adding lychees to a delivery pork sausage pizza come December 31 and wishing I were there.
