The Devour Phoenix Restaurant Coalition celebrates independent restaurants, represents Phoenix food culture, and is proud of Arizona’s unique heritage and gastronomic style. Through our annual Devour Culinary Classic, we seek to honor chefs and restaurants who rise to the top, excelling in all aspects of culinary, hospitality, and community.
The 2017 Devour Culinary Classic debuts the premier of the Devour Excellence Awards, intended to showcase Arizona’s culinary talent and bring deserved attention to our state’s culinary leaders.
A diverse panel of judges representing prestigious organizations and publications from across the country will be on site to determine 2017 award winners. Both Saturday and Sunday restaurant participants will be selected to receive Excellence in Innovation, Excellence in Taste, and Excellence in Presentation, with Excellence in Distinction being given to one candidate overall.
