The fall edition of Arizona Restaurant Week begins Friday. The event lasts 10 days, but if you're looking for something fun to do this weekend, it's a perfect opportunity to get out and try something new.

State of play: Participating restaurants offer a prix fixe menu for $33, $44 or $55.

  • And with 180-plus restaurants, there's a bit of everything on the menu.
