Foodies across the state wait patiently for the start of the Arizona Restaurant Association’s Fall Arizona Restaurant Week (ARW) each year, and restaurant owners view this week of good eats as the true “gateway to the season” in their respective establishments. The wait is nearly over as for 10 days starting September 18th through the 27th, diners can experience special menus at their favorite restaurants and have the chance to eat their way across the Valley, trying new restaurants and cuisine types.
During Fall ARW, participating restaurants offer a three-course prix-fixe menu for just $33 or $44 per person, excluding beverages, tax and gratuity unless otherwise noted. ARW menus allow food lovers to experience the height of culinary talent of chefs statewide.
Arizona Restaurant Association president and CEO Steve Chucri said, “Arizona’s food scene continues to thrive. We’re fresh off the success of our inaugural Arizona Breakfast Weekend, and preparing for another wildly popular restaurant week. Our local chefs and mixologists are incredibly innovative and continue to delight taste buds around the state.”
More than 75 restaurants have already signed up to participate in this highly touted culinary event, produced by the Arizona Restaurant Association.
In all, over 200 restaurants are expected to participate. From fine dining options such as J&G Steakhouse at the Phoenician and Binkley’s Restaurant to trendy hot spots such as Southern Rail, Salty Sow and Rusconi’s American Kitchen and neighborhood favorites such as Chelsea’s Kitchen, El Chorro Lodge and Marcellino Ristorante, Fall Arizona Restaurant Week truly offers something for every palette.
