  • Eric Rosen, a travel writer, represented The American Express at a culinary event hosted at El Celler de Can Roca, Spain.

Signature dishes apart, member diners were given a tour of the restaurant, the kitchens, and the cellar.

  • Platinum Card diners at The Indian Accent, Lodhi's cutting-edge Indian restaurant were pleasantly surprised to have celebrated chef Manish Mehrotra walk them through the dishes for the evening. There was a wide array of unusual pieces of bread on offer, adding to the delight of the diners.
