First-Ever Phoenix Vegan Restaurant Week Is Debuting This September
This week-long event is a celebration of all things vegan in Phoenix, Arizona!
For this first time ever, Phoenix Vegan Restaurant Week is debuting this September in Phoenix, Arizona. The event was created by Chef Jason Wyrick in collaboration with Jozh Watson of Phoenix Vegan, and will feature exclusive, multi-course prix fixe menus and affordably priced items from local restaurants, fast-casual eateries, bakeries, coffee shops, food trucks, meal delivery services, and more.
Phoenix Vegan Restaurant Week Founders
Chef Wyrick is a culinarian, speaker, author, publisher, and business owner. In 2006, Wyrick launched The Vegan Taste, a fully plant-based meal delivery service that features globally inspired, pre-made dishes. In 2019, Wyrick opened Casa Terra, Phoenix’s first all-vegan fine dining restaurant.
Watson, a longtime vegan advocate and the mind behind Phoenix Vegan—a website that highlights the area’s plant-based eats, drinks, lifestyle, culture, tips, and happenings—partnered with Wyrick as a way to bring the community together for a week that celebrates all things vegan.
Phoenix Vegan Restaurant Week Vendors
Guests who attend Phoenix Vegan Restaurant week will have the opportunity to try a number of plant-based dishes from local vegan eateries, including po’boys from Beaut Burger, Vegan Bahn Mi Tortas from Chilte, vegan pulled pork tacos from Dilla Libre, and breakfast quesadillas from Early Bird Vegan, to name a few. In addition to restaurants, local coffee shops such as Urban Beans Cafe and The Nile Coffee Shop will be in attendance, serving up morning staples like deluxe breakfast sandwiches and lemongrass chicken & waffles. Breakfast offerings will be priced at $20 and include an entree and drink, while lunch meals will feature an appetizer, entree, and drink for $20 per meal.
