Summer Dining Deals (Phoenix)
Thought it might be helpful to share some of the summer dining (and drinking) deals that we are hearing about that make it tolerable to be in Phoenix in the triple digit temperatures and save a couple bucks at the same time!
What I have heard about...
- Sunday BBQ at Bourbon Steak which has already been written about and sounds amazing - defintely will have to try that!
- Wildfish Grill's summer happy hour specials
- Fox Restaurants half price wine bottles on select nights
- Sassi - deals on bottles of wines and an "antipasti hour"
What else has everyone heard about??
Benihana has a special on their Hibachi Chicken for $18. From their web site:
Mouth-watering chicken breast hibachi-grilled to perfection and served with our famous Hibachi Chicken Fried Rice, plus Japanese onion soup, salad, shrimp appetizer, hibachi vegetables and rich, creamy ice cream for dessert – all for just $18!
News of more summertime deals showed up on the Republic's site this morning:
and last night, I ran across a blurb about specials at Stockyards on the Food Classes/events page:
"Summer Specials: Thursdays through Wednesdays, through Sept. 30. Choose from a selection of three-course dinner specials for $24.95 available nightly. Also, all bottles of wine up to $60 are 50 percent off in the dining room. Both summer specials are available through Sept. 30. Lunch is served 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Mondays-Fridays and dinner is served from 5-9 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays and 4-8 p.m. Sundays. Stockyards Restaurant and 1889 Saloon, 5009 E. Washington St., Phoenix. Prices vary. 602-273-7378."
In an email today from Don and Charlie's:
"Summer Friday's start Friday, June 27 and run every Friday throughout the summer. This menu will appeal to everyone and the price can not be beat.
Parmesan Crusted 14oz New York for $19.95
"Cuda" Cut Prime Rib for $19.95
Macadamia Nut Crusted Tilapia for $15.95
Tunnel of Elms, Chardonnay $5.00
Tunnel of Elms, Cabernet Sauvignon $5.00
There's a pretty new sushi and teppanyaki place in Gilbert. Sakura, at 940 S Gilbert road (just south of the Gilbert/Warner intersection). We've tried it a few times, and like it a lot. I still prefer the sushi at Sakai in Mesa a bit better, but Sakura has better service, better ambiance, and we can walk to it.
Sakura is having a 15% off the entire bill special for the summer. Our family of three dined there and ate well for about $25 before tip.
Just a reminder too that next week is Independents Week (June 30-July 6), and participating places are offering a nice 20% discount.
It's a great excuse to "shop local" and show more support for locally-owned, independent businesses - you can save 20% off participating businesses and restaurants. Some of the restaurants listed are Bomberos, Digestif, Cowboy Ciao, and Tapino. Good excuse for me to finally check out Bomberos.
