5 Best Things To Eat and Drink This Weekend in Metro Phoenix
Check, Please! Arizona Festival
Diana Lustig Flancer's puts the finishing touches on the goat cheese bruschetta at last year's festival.
Sunday, March 30
This weekend brings the second annual Check, Please! Arizona Festival to CityScape in downtown Phoenix. The event, hosted by Channel 8 and co-sponsored by Chow Bella, will bring more than 30 local independent restaurants together for an afternoon of food and drink sampling, panel discussions, and more. Participating restaurants include some of our favorite spots like Cowboy Ciao, Rancho Pinot, America's Taco Shop, and Tarbell's but we're particularly looking forward the James Beard Award winner discussion panel, to be lead by chef Robert McGrath. He'll be joined by Nobuo Fukuda and Christopher Gross, both of whom will also offer presentations of their own. Be sure to check out our list of 5 Things Not to Miss at the Check, Please! Arizona Festival on March 30 and get more information on ticket prices here.
