During Arizona Restaurant Week, restaurants offer a special edition prix-fixe dinner for either $33 or $44 (per person or per couple depending on restaurant). These restaurants are pulling out all the stops: you’ll have the chance to enjoy a gourmet three-course meal with exciting new dishes, and you can check each restaurant’s menu to see if drinks are included. In addition to their limited-time prix-fixe menu, all restaurants are also offering their regular menus all week long.
Even if you won’t be dining in at restaurants due to COVID-19, Arizona Restaurant Week has added a take-out option so that everyone can enjoy these fantastic promotions. All restaurants will be adhering to CDC guidelines. Every restaurant offers the option to dine in, and you can check the website to see which restaurants have a take-out option.
