In Arizona, there’s one common ingredient in every dish we serve: authenticity.

From sizzling southwestern joints to award-winning chef-owned dining rooms, our commitment to culinary excellence has made our cities a delicious destination for deliberate foodies.

On June 2, 2022 we invite you to have a seat at our table as we honor the culinary minds that have helped shape Arizona’s vast culinary landscape at the 2022 Foodist Awards.

2020 and 2021, were two of the hardest years we have faced. As a local industry, as a community, and nationally and globally across society. They were years in which restaurants were just trying to survive, and from that need the industry created some truly unique pivots, innovations, and dining trends. Some were notable, others remarkable and many will live on beyond this moment in time. Our community came together in new ways and supported initiatives born out of simple needs, like hunger and kindness. Operators rewrote the book on service, adopted new technology, redesigned dining out, literally took to the streets to expand their dining rooms outdoors, invented new concepts, and dazzled us as we embraced holidays at home. There was so much impressive work done by so many, and that deserves recognition.

Celebrate with the industry during the four course awards dinner at Republic National Distributing Company’s ‘Seventh & Union’ event space as we recognize the most amazing tastes, faces and places in Arizona food and beverage.
