Arizona Restaurant Week just around the corner
Save the Date: Arizona Restaurant Week (May 20-29, 2016)
Many cities and states now have organized restaurant weeks, where culinary experiences are celebrated and shared. Arizona kick’s off its gastro week May 20th-29th. If you’ve never participated, the event gives food-lovers an opportunity to visit a wide selection of participating restaurants for a prix-fixe meal at a fixed price. Over 100 restaurants will be taking part this year. Each establishment will offer a three-course meal for either $33 or $44 per person (excluding beverages, tax and gratuity…unless otherwise noted).
The organizers of Arizona Restaurant Week invited a few dozen local foodie influencers and critics to sample some of the menu offerings at three of the participating restaurants. This was a great opportunity to mingle with fellow foodies while also sampling some of the menu items that will be featured.
For logistical reasons, all three restaurants we visited were in the North end of Phoenix/Scottsdale. The photos below represent just a sample of the offerings at each restaurant. For a complete list of participating restaurants and to see their menus, click here. Our first stop was to The White Chocolate Grill.
We then boarded a waiting trolley that whisked off to our our next stop, La Bocca Wine Bar and Pizzeria in Northeast Phoenix.
After an hour or so we once again boarded our waiting trolley, this time dropping us off at Tavern Americana in North Scottsdale.
It was a wonderful introduction to this year’s Arizona Restaurant Week. If you’ve been to this event in the past, or have a favorite restaurant the folks shouldn’t miss, please post a comment below.
