I have to agree with the others who recommended the Citi Forward. Given your income and that the majority of your spending is on dining, it's the best option out there. Cards with even moderate AFs and a small dining multiplier won't be worth your while.


I've heard a lot of good reviews on Citi Forward, and it seems like the reward catagories are pretty fitting for the out and about sort of crowd.

It is really ugly, but I think the moral here is functionality > asthetics. I'd rather have an ugly card plus extra money in my pocket than a beautiful card that doesn't do what I need.
