American Express delicious. Month Out

From riverside dumplings at dusk to nights full of negronis and pasta, May is the month to eat out in Brisbane.

Arguable the tastiest month of the year, American Express delicious. Month Out celebrates all that makes Australia's beloved dining industry shine.

On offer is the perfect vantage point from which to savour your favourites, make moves on your to-eat list and explore a little further from your culinary-home than usual. Across Brisbane (and Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide), there are one-off menus, exclusive events and snazzy discounts to make all of your dining experiences that much nicer.

A highlight of the lineup is Pasta & Negroni Night at Gabba hot spot Sasso, happening Wednesday, May 25. A negroni on arrival — plus one for each of the three courses to follow — will set the good-vibes-only tone of the evening, before the trattoria's signature bread and pastas are shared over a two-hour sitting.

Dessert and a bespoke bag of goodies to take home will sweeten an already sweet evening (which will be backdropped by live entertainment and the excitement of such fun on a school night). The 6.30pm slot has already sold out, so hurry if you want to secure your spot at the 8pm seating.

Greca by Nikki To

Jonathan Barthelmess's Greca is a light and airy Greek taverna at Howard Smith Wharves — with a view, menu and aesthetic that screams summer holiday. For the month of May, the waterfront restaurant is ensuring your work lunch is the envy of everybody. From Monday to Friday, you can fuel-up with a souvlaki plate — piled high with charcoaled lamb, pickled veggies and fries — and your choice of house spritz, Felons APA or glass of prosecco for just $25. Head to the website for details.

Stanley Restaurant

At other Wharves-favourite Stanley, the farewelling of the sun can be enjoyed with the Wine and Dine at Dusk package, available from Monday to Thursday for bookings at 5pm and 5.30pm. The four-course set menu features signature dishes from the loudly applauded Cantonese and Chinese restaurant (helmed by hospo-heavyweight Louis Tikaram). Honey-glazed char siu or peking duck pancakes, perhaps? Or, you might be in for salt and pepper Moreton Bay bugs. With the sommelier hand-choosing a wine from the in-house cellar to pour with each course, the $100 per person menu is definitely bang for your buck.

On top of the aforementioned deliciousness, you can enjoy 20 percent off your bill (up to $25) when you use your American Express Card at participating venues, which include Cloudland, Otto, Gerard's Bar, Lune, Mei Wei Dumplings and more.

Head to the website to explore the delicious offerings, best served with Amex.
