Tickets for first event at W Boston featuring Chef Stephanie Izard will go on sale May 12, 2023

American Express and Marriott Bonvoy®, Marriott International’s award-winning travel program, are introducing Destination Dining, a culinary event series that brings together Card Members’ love of dining and travel at extraordinary hotels that participate in Marriott Bonvoy. The events, exclusively for Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card Members, will take place in Boston, Los Angeles, and Rome, and feature menus from award-winning chefs, including Chefs Stephanie Izard, Gregory Gourdet, Mike Solomonov and more.

American Express and Marriott Bonvoy know that dining is a passion point for Card Members, whether they are seeking out unique dining experiences while traveling or enjoying restaurants near home. At these exclusive events, Card Members can enjoy delicious cuisine against the backdrop of luxury hotels. 

"Food and travel always go hand in hand. When I visit a city, I love spending the day exploring new neighborhoods and seeing sights, building up an appetite for the many meals I’m about to have. I can’t wait to get back to Boston to bring some of our goat restaurant flavors and meet some fun folks, but selfishly I am also excited to do some eating and exploring of the many great spots Boston has to offer,” said Stephanie Izard, Chef & Owner of Girl & the Goat, Cabra (Chicago & Los Angeles), Duck Duck Goat, and Little Goat Diner (Chicago), and winner of Iron Chef Gauntlet and Top Chef.
