Quick Update: The original Instagram post had the wrong phone number. Now we’ve got the right one, plus a few more details about the meal.

We have no restaurant in Philly that’s like Rose’s Luxury. This three-year-old D.C. restaurant got tagged as the best new restaurant in America by Bon Apetit in 2014. Its chef, Aaron Silverman, does a Southern comfort food menu spiked with global influences (pork sausages with habanero and lychee, crispy squid with Yemeni hot sauce) and it is so good that people wait two, three, sometimes four hours to get a seat in the no-reservations dining room. Like, literally, wait in a line outside the front door in order to get a table.

But you wanna know some good news? Peter Serpico is doing a one-night-only collaboration dinner with Rose’s Luxury at Serpico, and you won’t have to do do anything except make a reservation.

Serpico posted on Instagram that he and the Rose’s crew would be doing an all a la carte collaboration on Tuesday, March 28. Unlike dining at Rose’s, you’ll be able to make a reservation and not have to stand around on South Street for hours waiting for a table. There’s no menu yet, but here’s what Serpico had to say:

That pretty much covers it, right? So if you’ve ever been curious about all the fuss over Rose’s Luxury, but didn’t feel like driving all the way to D.C. just to stand around in the street, this is your chance. Two of the best restaurant crews in America, coming together for one night only. Something tells me these reservations are going to go fast.
