What if you had an excuse to eat out for a whole week—or even longer? How about Restaurant Week? The very first Restaurant Week came together back in 1992, when the Democratic National Convention met in New York City. Chefs loved it. Foodies really loved it. Today food-conscious cities all over the country hold a Restaurant Week, when chefs showcase their specialties on accessible, prix fixe menus. Proud to be a founding sponsor, American Express is often able to arrange an exclusive early reservation period just for Cardmembers, or make a donation to a local hunger fighting charity when Cardmembers dine out during Restaurant Week. Visit the event in your city in 2008!
