Eleven Downtown Phoenix restaurants are participating in the second annual Downtown Dine Around this Saturday.

While they’re serving up the bites and sips, we’re giving up the scoop.

Dine Around…what? Think of it as a progressive meal throughout Downtown with budget-friendly samples of favorite dishes prepared just for you.

What kind of yumminess is in store? Mouth-watering bites like baby back ribs served with bourbon BBQ sauce and Chipotle Mac n’ Cheese from Tom’s Tavern & 1929 Grill; roasted tomato goat cheese bruschetta from the Phoenix Public Market; signature egg rolls and Puff & Huff pork wontons from Sing High Chop Suey House; or the delish Shephard’s Pie and Fish ‘N Chips from Seamus McCaffrey’s, to name but a few.

When is this delectable Dine Around? Saturday, December 3, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Where do I start? At any of the participating restaurants. Pick a spot, choose from the special Dine Around menu and have at it.
