Table for Eight at Raos

Raos Restaurant in NYC

It was once said, "you would have better luck getting invited to dinner at the White House than getting a reservation at this wise-guy Italian joint." This special evening is your opportunity to have a table for EIGHT at the infamous 124-year-old, family owned East Harlem institution, Rao's, on a bustling Thursday night (not including food & bar).

Known for its authentic, southern Neapolitan Italian cooking and its home-style family ambiance. The list of regulars at Rao’s reads like a "who's who" of New York celebrities, including Woody Allen, Billy Crystal, Rob Reiner, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Danny Aiello. Dining at Rao's is a legendary experience so beloved that getting a seat is only possible if you are a regular and have, "table rights," or if you're lucky enough to be invited as a guest by someone who does or if you come to the Harvey benefit and take the chance to bid on it!

Ciao and Mangiamo!  A truly priceless experience not to be missed! 

Restrictions:

  • Reservations only on a Thursday night.
  • Table for 8.  
  • Cash Only. Item does not include food or bar.
