The “Dinner with Chefs” series is back for 2018, but this year local celebrities are joining in on the action.

For the new year, chef Ryan Clark is continuing his monthly dinner series “Dinner with Chefs & Celebs” at PY Steakhouse, beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 22.

This month, chef Roderick Le Desma and the rest of the PY Steakhouse culinary team, are joined by UA graduate John Fina, who was also an offensive tackle in the NFL and played in two Super Bowls.

Tickets are $65 per person, and reservations can be made by calling (520) 324-9350.

The co-chefs will work to create a multi-course dinner with paired wines and a specialty cocktail, and the menus will always feature Arizona prime beef and Arizona-grown products from over 30 of Casino Del Sol’s local partnerships.
