Oak & Fork at Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino has announced its participation in the 2018 Spring Arizona Restaurant Week, making it the first restaurant in Maricopa to participate in this annual dining event. The recently opened wine bar will offer a three-course, prix-fixe menu for just $33 per person.

“We are excited to bring Arizona Restaurant Week to Maricopa,” said Colin Ribble, executive chef at Oak & Fork. “The menu features some of my personal favorites, and offers a taste of what our menu has to offer guests. This isn’t your typical hotel and casino restaurant, and we are excited to show that off to Arizona Restaurant Week guests.”

The Spring Arizona Restaurant Week menu features the choice of the lobster crab dip, Burrata or  Brussel chips as a first course, prosciutto and fig flat bread, Margherita flat bread or BBQ chicken flat bread as the second course, and chocolate cake as the dessert course.

Opened just a few months ago and a wholly new concept to Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino, the Oak & Fork menu pairs craveable, sharable items with hand-picked wines, beers and cocktails.

The Arizona Restaurant Association's Arizona Restaurant Week (ARW) returns with dining specials around the state from May 18-27. The 2018 Spring Arizona Restaurant Week features 10 days of showcasing local chefs’ creative culinary “chops” with three-course, prix-fixe menus for just $33 or $44 per person.

Arizona Restaurant Association president and CEO Steve Chucri said, “We are pleased to continue this dining tradition that has grown exponentially since we started 11 years ago. As Arizona’s culinary scene continues to evolve and become recognized on a national level, we could not be more pleased to help showcase these amazing restaurants and give local diners an opportunity to explore new culinary experiences.”

Diners can view a complete list of restaurants participating in Spring Restaurant Week online at www.arizonarestaurantweek.com. The Arizona Restaurant Association is pleased to announce that 2018’s Fall Restaurant Week will take place September 21-30.
