Nothing excites us more than a celebrity chef, especially when its world renowned Chef Gordon Ramsay. The Masterchef judge recently landed in Toronto to unveil a very special pop-up restaurant in partnership with American Express and Canadian Chefs Antonio Park and Matty Matheson.

Hidden behind a grocery store in Toronto’s Kensington Market is where you’ll find Cobalt Social. The pop-up restaurant is open by invite-only for one week. On the first evening, guests will be treated to Chef Ramsay’s signature dish of Kobe beef, radish and daikon. Afterward, visitors lucky enough to snag a reservation will have the opportunity to nosh on specially created menus by Chef Antonio Park and Chef Matty Matheson.

If you act fast, you might still be able to score a spot at the exclusive pop-up restaurant on American Express’ Facebook and Twitter pages. However, if you’re not able to, you can try Chef Ramsay’s signature dish, which he described to us as a “Magical moment that is in your mouth for seconds, but the kind of indulgence that you need to do,” on UberEats for free from September 27 to 28, courtesy of American Express.

And if you’re wondering why American Express would go through all this fuss, it’s to announce the new Amex Cobalt credit card, which was created specifically with millennials in mind. The new card offers bonus rewards on everything you love to spend money on — cardmembers get 5x the points on food and drinks, and 2x the points on travel and transit.
