In partnership with American Express, Resy commits to expanding the program to 9 cities nationally in 2020, with the addition of Houston, Charleston and Atlanta

NEW YORK, Sept. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Resy, the restaurant reservations platform used by many of the country's best restaurants, will bring its new-for-2019 traveling dining program - Off Menu Week - to NYC from Monday, September 16, 2019 through Sunday, September 22, 2019, and will expand the program from six cities to nine cities in 2020, with the addition of Houston, Charleston and Atlanta. Off Menu Week kicked off at the beginning of 2019 in Los Angeles, followed by Washington, D.C., and San Francisco; cities still to come in 2019 include NYC (9/16-9/22), Chicago (10/21-10/27), and Austin (12/9-12/15).

Resy's Off Menu Week dining program descends on NYC from September 16th - 22nd, giving diners a backstage pass to the best restaurants!

The remainder of Off Menu Week 2019 and Off Menu Week 2020 will be powered by American Express, which recently acquired Resy. American Express Card Members will get exclusive 72 hours access to early bookings* for Resy's Off Menu Weeks before anyone else.

When Off Menu Week pops up in NYC, 29 of NYC's best restaurants – including HaSalon, Estela, Loring Place, Shuko, Tetsu and more – will go off script and create never-before-seen dishes and menus. Diners may get to sample a dish auditioning for the main stage, the chefs' after-hours snacks dressed up, an item in R&D that could very well be the restaurant's next iconic dish, or whatever their culinary genius minds can imagine. There are no "rules" to speak of - the more whimsical the better! In turn, diners get a backstage pass to the ingenuity and innovation that's innate in great restaurants, and the chance to be a true industry insider.

Estela, hot off the heels of R&D sessions, will present a prix fixe menu full of new ideas. At Loring Place, Chef Dan Kluger will honor his mentor, Chef Floyd Cardoz, whose trailblazing restaurant The Bombay Bread Bar will close at the end of September; Kluger's dishes will tell the story of his time with Cardoz, who pushed Indian food at the forefront of New York's dining scene. At Union Square's lauded sushi operation, Shuko, the chefs are taking a cue from Italy, delving into this season's bounty for one last taste of summer. And at Air's Champagne Parlor, a crash course in bubbles is on the menu.

"At Air's, our mission has always been to make Champagne accessible and fun. Participating in Off Menu Week simply enables us to keep showcasing the many exciting ways sparkling wine can be paired with food, without being fussy about it. Since we like playing with the idea of high-brow/low-brow, we'll have bubbly options that are wide-ranging in style and price, and the snacks are being paired to the wines (versus the other way around)."

"Off Menu Week was born out of the fact that at Resy, we're obsessed with restaurants. We keep tabs on every opening and we treat hot reservations like gold. But more than anything, we live for the restaurant moments that make us really feel like insiders. We thought, lets throw out the dated premise of Restaurant Week and bring to life a program that's fundamentally about the connection diners crave, and the ingenuity that exists in restaurants everywhere," says Resy Co-Founder and CEO Ben Leventhal. "We are excited to see Off Menu Week pop up in Resy's hometown - New York City - this September, and for the program expand to even more amazing restaurant cities in 2020."
