NEW Spring Restaurant Week Starts May 13

Hungry for some awesome restaurant deals? The Arizona Restaurant Association announced yesterday that they'll be following in the footsteps of Long Island's Restaurant Week sponsors, who recently added a spring event to their annual culinary lineup.

The first-ever Spring Arizona Restaurant Week will take place May 13-22, 2011 at major eateries across town. The roster of participating restaurants is still in the works, but the AZRA offered up The Capital Grille's entrées as a teaser: Choose from 14 oz. Kona-crusted dry-aged sirloin, 8 oz. filet mignon or citrus-glazed salmon. Sounds delish!

It looks like Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chao will also be participating, with 10+ skewered meats and a side offered at Restaurant Week prices. Cost for the three-course prix fixe Restaurant Week meals will be $30 or $40, plus tax and gratuity. Some restaurants will also offer wine pairings to complement the meal.
