#3 2021 Fall Arizona Restaurant Week

The Arizona Restaurant Association continues its 14th year of culinary discovery with the 2021 Fall Arizona Restaurant Week Dine in or Takeout, taking place at restaurants around the state Sept. 17–26. The 2021 Fall ARW lineup already has more than 60 participants (and counting).

For this year’s 10-day dining extravaganza, participating restaurants are offering even more opportunity with an additional price option. Now three-course prix fixe menus have three price options: $33, $44 or $55 per person. The added $55 price point gives restaurants greater range to provide their guests with an even more elevated dining experience, and accounts for rising prices across the industry.
