PY Steakhouse inside Casino Del Sol is kicking off their annual “Dinner with Chefs” dinner series 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 29.

With each year’s passing, the monthly event continues to evolve into a much bigger culinary experience with its vast group of collaborators.

To put 2019 in perspective, PY Steakhouse and executive chef Ryan Clark are inviting both local and regional beverage experts into the kitchen to craft three-course dinners with paired beverages.

“I’m excited to mix things up again this year and partner with libationists every month. ‘Dinner with Chefs’ has always been about more than just the food, but now the beverages will be a key focus of these dinners,” said Clark.

First up, is Elvira’s bar manager Eric Harding on Tuesday, January 29. Seats are $75 per person and you can make reservations by calling (520) 324-9350.
