I’m very excited that Fall Arizona Restaurant week starts THIS Friday! If you are unfamiliar with this bi-annual food-lovers 11 day feast, familiarize yourself now! Arizona is quickly becoming home to some of the country’s BEST and top-rated dining destinations.

From sizzling Southwestern and soothing comfort foods to five-star dining and international fare – it’s all on the table during Arizona Restaurant Week. So prepare your taste buds and dig in.”
