To dine now or later, that is the question. Enter Rose’s Luxury and you’ll need to decide whether you’re heading upstairs for drinks or settling in for a meal at one of their nooks. The room exudes fun, especially at the counter facing the kitchen. The décor is decidedly laid-back, with bare wood tables and exposed bulbs that make you feel like you’re in someone’s backyard. This casual mood means you’ll spot all types inside, including couples with tots in tow. Sample the kitchen's greatest work in the tasting menu (also called the luxury menu), which may feature such highlights as caviar, a few items from the regular lineup (like the smoky and spicy campfire carrots), as well as a few creative options, like grilled cucumber with yogurt, sumac, and anchovy, or even a pickle-brined fried chicken. Desserts are similarly stirring, and in fact, diners may even skip dinner for the often unexpected but delicious take on the classics. Sweet and poached cubes of eggplant turn the familiar tarte Tatin on its head, just as the Fernet-Cola tiramisu is unusual and very good. Philanthropists take note—the restaurant donates part of their proceedings to World Food Programs for every meal served.
