From an email:

“Award winning Chef Aaron Silverman has teamed up with World Food Program USA and eBay Giving Works to auction off two reservations for Rose’s Luxury, Bon Appetit’s Best New Restaurant in America. And as I’m sure you’re aware, Rose’s Luxury doesn’t offer reservations – it’s first come, first serve.

100% of the proceeds from the auction will go to World Food Program USA and help provide school meals for children in need. School meals can be life changing for the world’s poorest children. School meals also help get students into the classroom, giving them an important key to a better future—an education.

The auction just went live [Rose’s Luxury Reservation for 2. Food is On Us! & Chef Autographed Platter], and will run through November 30.”

“Henry’s Upstairs, the very same space where Roberta Flack got her start many moons ago, will be open to the public Mondays and Fridays at 5:00pm starting Friday 11/7/14.

Henry’s Upstairs will offer a distinctly different menu featuring New American Creations and light fare on Friday nights, while our famous 1/2 priced burgers will continue to be offered on Monday nights along with the regular menu. A late night happy hour will be added in the near future and we hope to round out the rest of the week as needs dictate. Live entertainment will return to the space on a nightly basis and it will also be available for private functions.”
