Where to eat during Sonoran Restaurant Week 2022 (MENUS)

90+ restaurants have hopped on board this year

All appetites are welcome as Sonoran Restaurant Week once again takes over multiple areas of Tucson and highlights the City of Gastronomy. The culinary celebration is making its return for 10 days from Friday, September 9 – Sunday, September 18. Tucson Foodie is ecstatic to be producing Sonoran Restaurant Week this year, which is sponsored by Visit Tucson, and will feature several restaurants and unique menus that locals and visitors alike can savor.

“When Tucson Foodie was given the opportunity to take over Sonoran Restaurant Week, we jumped at it,” said Shane Reiser, owner of Tucson Foodie. “It’s closely aligned with our mission to help people explore the food and the places that make Tucson worthy of our UNESCO City of Gastronomy designation. It’s also a great way to help the local food and beverage scene rebuild after two very difficult years for the tourism and hospitality industries.”

If you’ve participated in this event in the past, and eaten your way around the city, then buckle up for the 2022 event. It’s grown in size with nearly 100 restaurants this time around, all of which are creating special menus for the 10-day event.

“This year is already going to be twice as big as previous years,” said Reiser. “Our dream is that in 2023, tens of thousands of people visit Tucson from neighboring states to explore the Tucson food scene, and participating restaurants will have a reliably strong start to the fall dining season every single year.”

Here’s how it works:

A handful of the participating restaurants are certified by the Tucson City of Gastronomy and will be creating a $25, $35, or $45 prix fixe menu for diners to enjoy. Guests can visit their favorite spots or discover new places — all while supporting mostly small, local businesses.

The available menus are below and we’ll keep updating them as they come pouring in. Keep in mind that some are only available on certain days of the week.
