Top 10 Picks for Arizona Restaurant Week, September 2013

In just a handful of days, Arizona Restaurant Week, the twice-a-year event put on by the Arizona Restaurant Association, will be in full swing. And this year, the nine-day fall celebration, which runs from Saturday, September 21, to Sunday, September 29, is expected to include over 150 restaurants offering discounted three-course meals, priced at $30 or $40, plus tax and tip.

That's a lot of choices to consider when deciding on where to spend your dining dollars and time.

To help, I've put together my top 10 picks for Arizona Restaurant Week (ARW) based on 10 unique types of dining experiences at restaurants listed on the event's website as of Sunday, September 8. From tropical tastes to gourmet veggies to this year's best-kept secret, there's a little something for everyone. Enjoy -- and make those reservations early!
