For an entire week, some of the finer restaurants around the valley will be offering a 3-course meal for $29 per person, or $58 per couple.
According to a poster on Chowhound, the following establishments have signed up for the 3-course meal deal:
Don and Charlie’s
The Greene House
Olive & Ivy
Ruth’s Chris (on Scottsdale Road)
Sol y Sombra
Ok, can you imagine how stoked I am? I’ve seen a few of these establishments at the West of Western culinary festival I volunteer at every year, and I’ve sampled their mouthwatering wares. But, unfortunately, most of their menus fall outside my grad student’s budget.
I think I’m most curious about eating at Tarbell’s. Mark Tarbell won an Iron Chef competition against Cat Cora on the Food Network, which is no small feat. I think Iron Chef-worthy food may be worth $30. Although, I was seriously unimpressed by his offering of chocolate dipped apple pieces at the West of Western (completely lacked originality and effort).
I remember the Greene House being at the West of Western, but I don’t remember what I sampled or if I liked it. This is two years in a row that I’m kicking myself for not taking notes of some kind.
Sol y Sambra seems like it would be a fun, hip, upbeat place to go — anyplace that serves sangria and tapas is a place I’d try at least once I’m thinking this might be a good girl’s night out destination.
What a great excuse to try some new places!
