Last week, I had the pleasure to attend a unique dinner hosted for American Express Platinum Cardmembers; a special dining experience at YEW Seafood and Bar at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver. Chefs Ned Bell and Jeff Van Geest collaborated to create a five-course meal celebrating British Columbia’s array of food, including seafood! Together paired with premium wines from the province’s first government designated sub-appellation, the Golden Mile.
The food presentation and event atmosphere was absolutely amazing. Each meal was explained and coupled with a delicious wine (which sadly I had to pass on, since I’m pregnant). I knew the evening was going to be a special kind of experience, so I wanted to dress the part too. And since all I have been wanting to do is dress for Fall, I thought this Kate Spade dress was perfect. Even with my growing belly it fit nice and I felt comfortable and put together. The oversized bow was such a show stopper! Perfect for a unique night out!
If you’re interested in the American Express Platinum Card, here are some of my favourite perks that Cardmembers have access to:
1. Access to exclusive premium events and experiences in your city and around the world. Also, Platinum Cardmembers can choose from over 1,000 of the most acclaimed restaurants here and abroad.
2. Reserve like a VIP at the best restaurants in the city with the Platinum Concierge.
If you’re in Vancouver here is a list of my favourite restaurants that will not only treat you to a divine dining experience, but also offer complimentary menu items and wine selections: Black + Blue, Blue Water Café, Chambar, CinCin, Coast Restaurant, Glowbal Grill Steaks & Satay, Hawksworth, Italian Kitchen, Market by Jean-Georges, West, Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar, Le Crocodile, Pidgin, Joe Fortes Seafood and Chophouse. Platinum Cardmembers can see more restaurants and Platinum benefits here.
Beyond these yummy benefits, there are a ton of travel perks such as complimentary airport lounge access, over 700 fine hotels and resorts to choose from and access to the Platinum Card Travel Service, which specializes in helping make travel arrangements as seamless as possible for Cardmembers. Pretty amazing right?
