Marriott launched a year ago Eat Around Town-program that allows Bonvoy members to earn points while eating out, drinking, or having deliveries from select restaurants and bars.
The base member usually earns 4 Bonvoy points per USD charged, while elite members get 6. These are both now elevated to 8 points per USD for October 2020.
You can access this offer on Marriott’s website here.

Note that you must register your credit card(s) with the program and then use one of them to pay for the check. Eat Around Town is handled by Rewards Network that runs similar programs for many other companies.
The dining program called iDine is the best-known product from Rewards Network. The company loans/front money to restaurants and then slowly claws back through the credit card merchant network (part of the check), and rewards consumers through partners.
If a restaurant that you usually frequent is part of the program, it makes sense to register your card and collect some bonus points or miles, depending on the loyalty program, in the process.
Remember to frequently check the restaurant participation that could be dependent on the day of the week (drive sales and foot traffic on slower days).
