It’s the most edible time of the year, the semiannual event that takes over restaurants across the state. Yes, we're talking about Arizona Restaurant Week, and the spring 2016 dates are in: Friday, May 20 to Sunday, May 29.
This year, Arizona Restaurant Week is presented by BMW North Scottsdale and produced by the Arizona Restaurant Association. The event includes 10 nights of dining at more than 100 restaurants across the state. Throughout the event, restaurants will offer three-course meals for either $33 or $44 – usually before beverages, tax, and gratuity – often with prix-fixe menus also available.
Some metro Phoenix restaurants participating in Spring 2016 Arizona Restaurant Week this spring include Cafe Lalibela in Tempe, Okra in uptown Phoenix, and Two Brothers Tap House & Brewery in Scottsdale. Diners can also check out some first-time participants such as Drexyl, Inde Fusion, and Quill Creek Café at the Grayhawk Golf Club – all in Scottsdale.
