Every year, the Arizona Restaurant Association invites the industry and foodie fanatics to have a seat at our table as we honor the culinary minds that have helped shape Arizona’s culinary landscape. Some cook regularly in their kitchen; some dream of the next great concept; some mix it up behind the bar; and others manage foodservice solutions. All contributed to an exciting year of exhilarating food developments.

The Annual Foodist Awards recognizes and celebrates our thriving restaurant community through 23 coveted awards. Foodist Awards is the night to come together as we recognize Arizona’s incredibly talented individuals and companies and toast to an incredible year.
