American Express, which acquired OpenTable competitor Resy in May, has launched a new endeavor available to all American Express cardholders. Called ‘Off Menu Week,’ the service aims to provide members with exclusive dining opportunities in big cities across the US. Similar to Restaurant Week, in which higher-end restaurants offer prix fixe menus at discounted prices, Off Menu Week will bring brand new menus for a single week to some of the country’s hottest restaurants.
For Amex cardmembers, reservations to these restaurants will open a full 72 hours prior to the public, giving a head start to those looking to book. The next of these events is in New York, at Tetsu and other participating restaurants, with reservations opening on August 19:
NEW YORK CITY
SEPTEMBER 16 – 22: American Express Presale begins August 19 at 9am ET via Resy. Public reservation slots begin August 22 at 9am ET via Resy.
Other events for the year include Chicago and Austin:
OCTOBER 21 – 27: American Express Presale begins September 19 at 9am ET via Resy. Public reservation slots begin September 23 at 9am ET via Resy.
DECEMBER 9 – 15: American Express Presale begins November 7 at 9am ET via Resy. Public reservation slots begin November 11 at 9am ET via Resy.
This is a nice benefit for Amex cardholders, especially as it isn’t limited to those carrying some of its more premium cards. So whether you’ve got The Platinum Card® From American Express or the no annual fee American Express Blue Business Cash™ Card (see rates & fees), this is one benefit you can take advantage of. Enrollment required for select benefits.
