I, like many of you, got in on the British Airways 100,000 mile bonus this spring and I recently received an interesting NYC dining promotion, which sparked my interest:

“Use your British Airways Visa® Card at any NYC MICHELIN Guide 2011 star-rated restaurant today through October 1, 2011.  Dine once and receive a $50 statement credit.  Dine twice and receive another $50 statement credit for a total of $100.  Minimum purchase of $50 each time you dine.1

I’ve been on a contest kick lately and I’ve also gotten the chance to meet up with several TPG readers (which have all turned into really interesting conversations), so I thought I’d take advantage of this promo and invite a reader to lunch or dinner at one of the one star restaurants in NYC. I love you all, but I’m not splurging on a thousand dollar meal at Per Se!

Here’s how to win: I’ve selected the restaurant I want to go to, so you have to make one guess from the list (below). You can enter a total of two times – once in the comments section of this post and once via Twitter, follow me and then Tweet me @thepointsguy and include your restaurant guess and include hashtag #dinewithTPG.

Enter by Sunday August 7, 2011 at 11:59pm Eastern Time. You don’t have to be NYC based, but I will not pay for transportation, so you’ll have to find a way to be here on a day when I’m in NYC and before this promo ends on October 1, 2011. If multiple people guess the right restaurant, I’ll choose a random winner.

Good luck! Make your guess from the following restaurants…
