Never in my life have I been so excited to wait 2.5 hours for a restaurant. Let me tell you, it was worth every second of the wait. Rose’s Luxury definitely up lived to the hype of being named Bon Apetite’s number one hot new restaurant of 2014. Every detail was perfectly thought out, from the utensils to each dish. The staff was super attentive and honest on their favorite drinks and dishes. They really worked hard to make the whole experience a memorable one. We went for my husband’s big 3-0 and they took great care of us by giving us a few dishes on the house. Rose’s Luxury is non pretentious, and I would highly recommend eating there to anyone.
- Go early or go late – Weekdays are easier than the weekends to get a table. If you can get there before 5:30pm to get in the line great, if not you may be eating at 10 pm. But it is still lively and fun at the later hour. I got through to the hostess stand by 6:30 and we ate around 9.
- Be open-minded – Some of the dishes sound like a crazy mix of ingredients, but trust me, they know what they are doing. They are super accommodating to dietary restrictions. If you’re gluten-free or vegan, this place is for you!
- Follow them on social media! Their instagram and Facebook are a lot of fun. You can really get a sense of their culture.
Current Menu – I stared the items we had, and wrote a few comments. We didn’t end up getting of the family style items, we were so full.
