Chew, Chew

Just as you're getting over being completely stuffed from Devoured, it’s time for another round of deliciously rich samples from local, independent restaurants. With 30 different restaurants participating, Check, Please! Arizona Festival is bringing some of the best eateries in town to CityScape.

With a panel of James Beard Award winners featuring Christopher Gross, Nobuo Fukuda, and Robert McGrath at the Chow Bella Stage, attendees will get the unique opportunity to learn from esteemed restaurateurs. However, if you’re just in it for the samples, Vogue Bistro, Rancho Pinot, and Tarbell’s will surely have something to satisfy your palate, with Goose Island beer to wash it all down with.

Check, Please! will be at 1 East Washington Street in downtown Phoenix on Sunday, March 30, beginning at 11 a.m. Tickets are available online at for $10 off at $69, or you can buy them for full price the day of the event.

Sun., March 30, 11 a.m.-3 p.m., 2014
