Indulge in Ten Days of Culinary Discovery

2019 Fall Arizona Restaurant Week

 The Arizona Restaurant Association announces the arrival of its 2019 Fall Arizona Restaurant Week (ARW), which takes place from Friday, Sept. 20, through Sunday, Sept. 29. During these 10 days, diners can take advantage of three-course meals and prix-fixe menus for just $33 or $44 per person at participating restaurants around the state.

 “Consumer demand for restaurants in Arizona has been the highest it’s ever been and that’s why we see such support each year during both Spring and Fall Restaurant Week,” says Arizona Restaurant Association president and CEO Steve Chucri. “We are proud to be leading the charge in an initiative that helps diners discover some of the best local, chef-driven restaurants as well as support some of the most well-known restaurants in the state.”

This year marks the 12th anniversary of Arizona Restaurant Week, a twice-a-year opportunity (including Spring Arizona Restaurant Week, which takes place in May) for local food aficionados to indulge in some of the state’s finest menus and discover hidden local gems while also giving Arizona chefs a chance to showcase their culinary creativity beyond their regular menus. Here is just a sampling of current participating restaurants: Ajo Al’s, Barrio Queen, Buck and Rider, Chart House, Citizen Public House, Different Pointe of View, Fuego Bistro, Ghost Ranch Modern Southwest Cuisine, Kovo Modern Mediterranean, La Locanda Ristorante Italiano, Ling & Louie’s, Marigold Maison, Mowry & Cotton, Nobuo at Teeter House, Pasta Brioni, Salut Kitchen Bar, Southern Rail, T. Cook’s, The Dhaba, The Gladly, The Parlor Pizzeria, The Sicilian Butcher, Vincent on Camelback and Virtu Honest Craft.

Restaurant Hosts Fundraiser For Arizona Special-Needs Camp

Sunday, August 16, Salut Kitchen Bar is donating 20 percent of combined sales from select food and drink to Lions Camp Tatiyee, a free, special-needs camp in Arizona for individuals of all ages with disabilities.

Not long ago, this 501(c)3 was in immediate danger of cancelling week-long sessions due to a shortfall of funds. Salut will hold the fundraiser in an effort to ensure Lions Camp Tatiyee can continue to offer all camp sessions to individuals with special needs for generations to come. Learn more about the camp at www.arizonalionscamp.org.

Twenty percent of sales of the Bird Dog Peach Cocktail, Four Peaks’ popular Kilt Lifter, Salut’s signature Hummus Nachos and campers’ favorite make-your-own s’mores will all be donated to Lion’s Camp Tatiyee. In addition, enjoy half-off bottles of wine and a raffle to win prizes such as sporting event tickets and Salut gift cards.

The fundraiser will be held from 9:30am-10pm. Salut Kitchen Bar is located at 1435 East University Drive in Tempe. For more information, call 480.625.3600 or visit www.salutkitchenbar.com.
