Petite Maison in Scottsdale: Here's the Arizona Restaurant Week Menu
We're just a day away from the start of Arizona Spring Restaurant Week, so if you still haven't made your reservations, you'd better act fast. There are dozens of places all over town that will be offering special three-course menus during the 10-day event, each of which will be priced at either $30 or $40 a person.
