For some, the falling leaves and subtle chill in the air signify the onset of autumn. Here in the Valley, local diners celebrate the season with the arrival of The Arizona Restaurant Association's Fall Arizona Restaurant Week (ARW). This year marks the 10th anniversary of this food-focused event that has developed into a 10-day long gastronomic jubilee, with restaurants statewide offering their special ARW menus brimming with the bounty of the season’s harvest.
To celebrate 10 years of this spectacular event this year, the Arizona Restaurant Association is giving diners a chance to win big during Fall ARW with an exciting online contest featuring 10 experiential prizes that foodie and travel lovers will eat up.
The 2017 Fall Arizona Restaurant Week will kick off 10 days of dining, from September 15th through the 24th, with nearly 200 participating restaurants showcasing three-course prix-fixe meals for just $33 or $44 per person. In addition to Fall ARW, the Arizona Restaurant Association hosts Spring ARW in May and Arizona Breakfast Weekend in July, and is proud to be supported by its sponsors: Young’s Market Company, Sanderson Lincoln, Sanderson Ford, Open Table, the Arizona Office of Tourism, and American Express.
Arizona Restaurant Association president and CEO Steve Chucri said, “Arizona Restaurant Week gives Valley diners a unique opportunity to try some of the state’s finest and most popular restaurants featuring special menus designed to let their culinary staff shine. We are proud to have contributed to the interest, development and support of the local culinary scene for the past 10 years — and counting.”
Participating Fall restaurants include: The Dhaba, SumoMaya, Marcellino Ristorante, Sonata’s, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Artizen, Match, Nobuo at Teeter House, Café ZuZu, The Keg, El Panzon y Frida, Christopher’s & Crush Lounge, The Capital Grille (Phoenix & Scottsdale) and Arrowhead Grill amongst many others.
