The West Coast is about to get a lot of visitors with the upcoming Super Bowl. And this is a great opportunity for Phoenix to show off as a major culinary player. With that in mind– the city has launched a new initiative, which aims to promote the local culinary scene. It will be rolled out anytime there is a massive event in Phoenix.  

To prepare for the influx of hungry diners, restaurants in downtown Phoenix, especially near the confines of the Super Bowl Central, are preparing menu specials. As part of the new initiative the promotion DTPHX City Sampler was created– 20 downtown restaurants will be offering $5 deals that include two signature menu items. Some of the $5 deals include a 6-ounce pour of an Arizona craft beer and two bacon-wrapped dates at District American Kitchen & Wine Bar. The $5 deal will be also available at Mother Bunch Brewing– which includes any Mother Bunch beer and a small basket of house-made Salty Pork Rinds. The program begins on Friday, Jan. 23 and runs through Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 1.

Other restaurants will be going over and beyond to entice diners, such as La Piazza Phx on First Street. The Pizza joint will be setting up a temporary outdoor sitting area and has hired a bartender for the week. Read More
