Arizona Restaurant Week Fall 2021: Here are 20 menus worth trying around metro Phoenix – The Arizona Republic

After a year of uncertainty, fall Arizona Restaurant Week is back.

The biannual 10-day celebration is meant to entice diners to try a new spot they’ve been curious about or to make a casual mid-week trip to a restaurant usually seen as a celebration-only locale. 

While the spring event serves as a last push before the summer lull, the fall fete is an entre to the promising peak fall and winter season in the desert.

More than 120 Valley restaurants are participating, offering set price, multi-course meals that showcase the best of their menus. (A complete list of participating restaurants can be found at There’s only so many meals you can eat in 10 days, so we’ve narrowed it down to 20 menus that earned a double take thanks to their creative dishes, value for the money or both.

All menus are available Sept. 17-26. Menus that feature alcohol apply to dine-in orders only. Reservations are recommended.
