Get the inside scoop on star-studded food events, premium partnerships and how to score a seat at the table early


Well, here’s some delicious news: Capital One has added more ways for cardholders to enjoy exclusive access to amazing culinary events.

No matter which Capital One card is in your wallet, it’s the key to fantastic credit card benefits for foodies. With cards like Savor®, Quicksilver® and Venture® , you’ll get access to some of the most sought-after tables and events around the country. 

James Beard Foundation Events

The James Beard Foundation’s (JBF) Good Food For Good™ mission celebrates chefs making America’s food culture more delicious, diverse and sustainable for everyone. 

As an ongoing JBF partner, Capital One gives cardholders year-round access to the following events and dining experiences:

  • James Beard House hosts chefs from around the world to cook special dinners for guests in James Beard’s former home. Dinners sell out fast—but cardholders have access to exclusively held tickets, plus discounted pricing for JBF members.
  • Taste America brings exciting JBF dining events to cities across the country. Cardholders get early access to tickets, plus perks like VIP cocktail receptions, behind-the-scenes tours and meet-and-greets with chefs.
  • The James Beard Awards Gala honors chefs and restaurants that embody the leadership, diversity and tenacity JBF supports every day. Cardholders have exclusive access to this annual event. 

OpenTable® Exclusive Reservations

Need a reservation for a hard-to-get weekend table? Through November 2020, Capital One cardholders can make exclusive reservations during prime dining times with the OpenTable app. You’ll get special access to some of the best restaurants in the U.S.

Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One

The South Beach Wine & Food Festival® (SOBEWFF®) took place February 19-23, 2020. And there was something for everyone at one of Miami’s favorite foodie events of the year. During the five-day food extravaganza, Capital One cardholders enjoyed preferred pricing, admission discounts, purchase priority entry and reserved seating.

Not to mention exclusive access to dinners prepared by celebrated chefs:

  • Anne Burrell and Scott Conant brought their award-winning charm and talent to Scarpetta at Fontainebleau Miami Beach for “one night in Italia.”
  • Ashley Christensen, Mike Lata and John Kunkel showed just why they’re leading the charge in a Southern culinary revival as they tantalized guests at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar with a dining experience crafted to perfection.
  • Bobby Flay, Tommaso De Simone and Cosimo Cassano came together at chic Amare Ristorante to curate a menu that reflected the spirit and soul of the Italian coast. 

And the fun didn’t stop with those dinners and their specially curated wine pairings. Cardholders also enjoyed early access to events hosted by well-loved chefs like Giada De Laurentiis, Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri. 

Be on the lookout for more festivals and exclusive experiences in the future.
