American Express and Resy are completely reinventing the restaurant experience to ensure card members can still safely enjoy a night out on the town this winter.

In November, the two companies announced new collaborations with 15 restaurants across the nation. The collaborations will bring unique outdoor dining experiences to 13 different cities exclusively for American Express Card Members.

“These past several months have reinforced just how important restaurants and dining out are to our Card Members, communities and our own daily lives,” Chris Cracchiolo, the senior vice president of global loyalty and benefits at American Express, shared in a statement. “As the winter months approach, we will again find ourselves looking for new ways to safely and comfortably enjoy some of our favorite restaurants, which is why we are introducing new at-home and outdoor dining experiences exclusively for our Card Members this winter."

One of its biggest experiences to come is the introduction of The Yurt Villages, which American Express and Resy describe as a “new covered, heated outdoor experience available exclusively for American Express Card Members.”

The Yurt Villages will be available at 13 restaurants around the nation from early December. The restaurants include Arlo Grey in Austin, Bywater American Bistro in New Orleans, Canlis in Seattle, The Charter Oak in Napa Valley, Crown Shy in Manhattan, Fairfax in Manhattan, Fiola in Washington, DC, Frasca Food and Wine in Boulder, The Grey in Savannah, Kann in Portland, Lilia in Brooklyn, Swift & Sons in Chicago, and Zahav in Philadelphia.
