Foodies should be overjoyed this week as Arizona Restaurant Week is underway and will continue to run through Saturday, September 28th. Get your grub on at a restaurant that probably doesn’t encourage use of the word “grub” when it comes to dining.
For $30 or $40 dollars a plate you can indulge in a three-course culinary experience. That might seem like a lot, especially to all the struggling artists and musicians that comprise/read our publication, but considering the usual price tag attached to such dining establishments, it’s a worthwhile deal.
I have my heart set on Coup Des Tartes, a French restaurant in downtown Phoenix, and it’s not just for the desert option of Chocolate pots de Creme – a rich Belgium chocolate custard, topped with fresh cream. Maybe Prime Rib followed by luscious Mud Pie from the Chart House in Scottsdale is more your speed? Or, perhaps, the Watermelon and Ahi Tuna Ceviche with Honey Lime followed by Open Flame Broiled Dorado (mahi-mahi) with a Onion & Tomato Marmalade from Tapas Papa Frita?
Cafe Lalibela offers a special deal of only $30 per couple for a steaming platter of authentic Ethiopian samplings to share. Fear not, desert still comes separately. Olive & Ivy, Salty Sow, Fuego CityScape, The Breadfruit & Rum Bar, and about 150 other restaurants have joined in this year’s event. For a complete list, head here.
Make reservations today so you don’t miss out. Spaces fill up quickly. Be warned, taxes and gratuity are not included so keep that in mind when planning your evening.
