The Arizona Restaurant Association continues its 14th year of culinary discovery with its 2021 Fall Arizona Restaurant Week Dine in or Takeout, taking place at restaurants around the state from Friday, September 17 through Sunday, September 26.
For this 10-day dining extravaganza, participating restaurants are offering even more opportunity this year with an additional price option. Now three-course prix fixe menus have three price alternatives for $33, $44 or $55 per person. The added $55 price point gives restaurants greater range to provide their guests with an even more elevated dining experience, and accounts for rising prices across the industry.
These dedicated ARW menus highlight the culinary talents of chefs around the state while giving dining enthusiasts a great deal. In addition to the three-course prix fixe menu, many restaurants offer wine pairing selections to enhance each course for an additional cost.
“It’s no secret that the restaurant industry — and the people who keep it running every day — has suffered greatly as a result of the pandemic,” says Arizona Restaurant Association president and CEO Steve Chucri. “Arizona Restaurant Week is an opportunity for residents and visitors to help this industry that has a dynamic impact on our economy as a whole. We appreciate the support of diners that continue to dine in (or takeout) not only because they enjoy it but because they want to be part of rebuilding our vibrant culinary community. The new price option this year will allow restaurants to raise the bar on their offerings for guests.”
