Arizona Restaurant Week is returning September 15 to September 24 and patrons will have much more than food to digest.
“To celebrate 10 years of this spectacular event, we are giving diners a chance to win big with an exciting online contest featuring 10 experiential prizes that foodie and travel lovers will eat up,” says Steve Chucri, Arizona Restaurant Association president and CEO.
“Some of them include a brewery tour and tasting with SanTan Brewing Co; a coffee roasting and cupping tour for 10 at CULT Coffee Roasters; and even a drone.”
The 10-day eating extravaganza offers diners the opportunity to try three-course, prix-fixe menus at more than 60 Arizona restaurants for $33 or $44 per person. The goal is to position the Grand Canyon State one of the top culinary destinations in the nation, and to stimulate business and revenue.
The Wigwam’s restaurants are taking part in the twice-yearly event.
“The Wigwam is excited to be participating again in the Fall Arizona Restaurant Week,” said Tim Roos, director of food and beverage at The Wigwam.
“It provides a great opportunity to try a variety of dishes showcased at Litchfield’s, our farm-to-table, dinner-only restaurant, as well as Red’s Bar & Grill, which serves updated comfort food. Both restaurants are set in a beautiful resort setting.”
Red’s menu will feature deviled eggs, fried pickles, loaded fries and spinach salad as shared appetizers; fish po’boy, chicken caprese, cobb burger and caliente pork burger for entrees; and ice cream sandwiches are dessert.
Meanwhile, Litchfield’s will serve arugula (peach, blueberry, candied pecans, goat cheese and lemon vinaigrette), tomato bisque and duck confit as a starter; pappardelle, shrimp and chicken for entrée; and berry crisp or chocolate cheesecake for dessert.
