The Arizona Restaurant Association is pleased to announce the return of Arizona Restaurant Week (ARW) this spring. For 10 days — beginning Friday, May 21 through Sunday, May 30 — diners can enjoy specially dedicated menus designed to showcase the true culinary talent that exists within the state — from the finest five-star restaurants to locally owned and chef-driven “hidden gems.”

During the event, participating restaurants offer culinary adventurers a unique tasting opportunity in addition to their regular menus, featuring three-course prix-fixe menus for just $33 or $44 per person. Wine pairings to enhance each course are offered at some establishments for an additional cost. Menus are available for dine-in as well as to-go. With take-out dining still a necessary and vital part of how restaurants are surviving in the COVID-19 age, diners are encouraged to participate in any way they feel comfortable — enjoying the incredible ARW menus in the restaurant or in the comfort of their own homes.

“After the unrelenting challenges that the entire hospitality industry faced in 2020, we’re thrilled to present Spring Arizona Restaurant Week, an event that has always been dedicated to promoting and supporting restaurants around the state,” says Arizona Restaurant Association president and CEO Steve Chucri. “We hope that diners take the opportunity during Spring ARW to patronize their favorite restaurant or give a new one a try.”

“The most edible time of the year,” Arizona Restaurant Week sends diners on a ten day tasting tour of the state. Participating restaurants are not only known for their exceptional cuisine, they also spare no expense to give diners an extraordinary culinary experience. One of Arizona Restaurant Week’s goals is to position Arizona as one of the top culinary destinations in the nation by increasing awareness of the more than 8,500 dining opportunities available as well as stimulate business and revenue for restaurants throughout the state. Arizona Restaurant Week is produced by the Arizona Restaurant Association.
