New to Global Dining AccessLos Angeles

Damian, Olivetta, Pasjoli, and More: A Can’t-Miss Guide to Accessing L.A.’s Best


Against all odds, restaurants came roaring back this year after a dizzying gauntlet of reinvention. The return came as a sign of defiance against any skepticism that exceptional dining could happen again.

Needless to say, there are no skeptics over here. We could spend all day gushing about our most exceptional dining experiences. (We do that). And holidays or no, we’re thinking hard about Los Angeles, and the restaurants that always offer special touches for locals and visitors alike. And in this case, every one is part of Global Dining Access by Resy, which provides exclusive access to American Express premium card members.

In that spirit, we wanted to offer our services as personal dining concierge, with a few hints along the way to enhance your dining experience. Whether it’s the inimitable chicken sandwich at Son of a Gun, the merging of Californian ingredients and Mexican flavors at Damian, or the stellar wine program that complements a seasonal menu at Rustic Canyon, here are the ins and outs of some of the most pleasurable dining the city has to offer.
