Arizona Restaurant Week (ARW) is running from May 20 to May 29 this year, giving food lovers the chance to enjoy prix-fixe dinners at 126 local restaurants and counting. Participating restaurants set a three course fixed menu option for $33, $44, or $55 per person or couple, not including tax or tip. Patrons are also welcome to order from the restaurant’s normal menu, but will not get the ARW pricing if they do. Most participating restaurants are in the Phoenix area, but ARW welcomes restaurateurs from around the state to join the event, and restaurant sign-ups are still open for anyone who would like to apply.
If you’re worried about dining in, you can filter restaurants by those offering take out options, a choice that was added in 2020 and is back for the 2022 event. All participating restaurants will allow dining in as an option, though setting a reservation is recommended as restaurants fill up quickly.
This year the ARW is also supporting the HonorHealth Desert Mission Food Bank, which provides access to nutritious and affordable food for families in need. The HonorHealth food bank seeks to end child hunger in the state of Arizona, and donations are encouraged.
