Gabrielle Hamilton's Prune is partnering with American Express to offer "secret tables" to card-holders throughout the month of September. The way it works: If you have a Gold Amex, you can call the restaurant anytime during September and request a reservation for the "American Express Gold Table for Two." They're offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Seatings are at 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. nightly. Also, if you have a Gold card, you can show it to your sever to get a free off the menu dish next month.

According to the event's homepage, these chefs will "explore their own Nordic inspiration and flavors" for one dinner presented by VisitDenmark and The Consulate General of Denmark in New York. Tickets, which include both food and beverages, are available online right now for $179.
