Frequently Asked Questions About Restaurant Week

What is Arizona Restaurant Week?

Arizona Restaurant Week is the most edible time of the year, giving local, regional and national food lovers the opportunity to enjoy a prix-fixe dinner for $33, $44 or $55 per person or couple (unless noted: excluding beverages, tax and gratuity) at a number of participating Valley restaurants. Arizona Restaurant Week’s goal is to position Arizona as one of the top culinary destinations in the nation by increasing awareness of the many dining opportunities available in the state, as well as stimulating business and revenue for restaurants throughout Arizona.

When is it?

Arizona Restaurant Week is making its bi-annual return Friday, May 20-29, and September 16-25, sending diners on an 10-day tasting tour throughout the state.

How are ARW restaurants responding to COVID-19?

One of the biggest changes to our 2020 Restaurant Weeks was the addition of takeout and we are keeping this around for 2022!  In years past ARW has been a dine in only experience but due to COVID-19 we want to make sure all out fellow foodies feel comfortable and able to join the ARW deals. Please use our search feature to find out which restaurants are offering takeout, but as always ALL are offering dine in. 

In addition this change, our restaurants are taking sanitation and the health of consumers extremely seriously. The ARA has been advising restaurants on health and safety precautions since they have reopened and will continue to do so during the event.
