Are you hungry yet? 10-day Arizona Restaurant Week to kick off on Friday

PHOENIX — Mark your calendars and pull out your stretchy pants: The Arizona Restaurant Week is back and this year the event will celebrate 10 years of foodie madness.

The spring version of the 10-day event kicks off on Friday and continues until May 28.

More than 150 restaurants will participate in Arizona Restaurant Week and will offer an appetizer, entree and dessert for $33 or $44 per person, — not including tax or gratuity — depending on the restaurant.

But that’s not all.

For those who have not gotten enough of a taste of all the culinary delicacies that Arizona has to offer, the Arizona Restaurant Association will also offer Arizona Breakfast Weekend from July 27 to July 30.

The fall Arizona Restaurant Week will be held in September, from the 15th to the 24th.

Some of the restaurants that will participate in this spring’s restaurant week include:

• The White Chocolate Grill

• Roy’s Chandler

• District American Kitchen & Wine Bar

• Sonata’s Restaurant

• Ajo Al’s Mexican Café

• Salty Sow

• Firebirds

In a press release, Arizona Restaurant Association President and CEO Steve Chucri marked the event as a “strong culinary driver” in the state.

“Arizona Restaurant Week has remained a strong culinary driver to many local chefs and restaurant owners as well as a treasured memory maker for diners,” Chucri continued. “It’s hard to go wrong, and we are delighted to be celebrating ten years of making folks happy.”

The expansion of Arizona Restaurant Week from once to twice a year happened in 2011, when it added its spring week.

The move is just one of the ways the Arizona Office of Tourism is looking to advertise the state as a “foodie destination.”
