The latest eatery turning to Kickstarter? Rose’s Luxury, which Momofuku Noodle Bar and 2941 alum Aaron Silverman is opening on Barracks Row next spring.
Silverman hopes to raise at least $20,000 to help cover the design and renovation of the space. More specifically, he writes that the money will go toward plants for its enclosed garden seating area, nonpaper hand towels for the bathroom, and “maybe even a fancy ice machine to make actual ‘cubes’ of ice for your cocktails.”
Rewards include a complimentary drink (and high five) for a $10 pledge, a multicourse tasting dinner for nine people cooked in your home plus invites to the VIP soft opening, and a private tasting for two at the chef’s counter four times a year for pledges of $5,000 or more. But perhaps most interesting of all: $25 gets you a steamy romance novel signed by the entire “sexy” kitchen staff—plus a free drink.
As Y&H previously reported, the restaurant will feature a $46-per-person tasting menu with potential dishes like popcorn soup, strawberry pasta, and pickle-brined fried chicken. Read more about the restaurant here, and check out the Kickstarter campaign here.
