UPDATE: Thanks to a reader for passing on an email response from Rose’s:

“We already reached out to the craigslist poster and told them that we would be checking CC’s to verify reservations so that any transfer would be null and void.

From Rose’s Luxury:

“We will begin taking reservations for New Year’s Eve On Tuesday, December 2nd, at 11am via this link. Please note that reservations slots labeled “Kitchen Counter” and “Garden Bar” are side by side seats. Our upstairs bar stools will offer the full menu and remain open for walk-ins.

The New Year’s Eve menu is $95 per person, and every two guests have their choice of three small plates and one “family style” dish to share, plus dessert, some bubbles, and a few extra goodies. Drinks, tax and gratuity are not included.

At the time of booking a $50 per person credit card authorization charge is required.

For any cancellations made less than 48 hours in advance, there will be a charge of $50 per person, with exceptions being extreme situations due to the reemergence of the y2K bug or Kim Kardashian, in fact, “breaking the internet”.”

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.”
