The Crenn World Chef Series is scheduled to begin November 19th, 2018, and run until May 15, 2019. Each event will feature a multi-course tasting menu from the chef of the night, and there will be two seatings per night, each of which will seat 20. Tickets are running at $450/person and will include food and service. If you want wine with your meal, two wine pairing options will be offered but will not be included in the ticket.

As Chef Dominque Crenn is a part of the American Express Global Dining Collection, American Express Centurion & Platinum Card Members will have the exclusive opportunity to purchase tickets during a pre-sale period 48 hours before tickets go on sale, and this pre-sale period will begin exactly eight weeks before each event at 1:00pm EST. If you're interested in attending, the events are listed below, along with each ticket sale date.
