Dinner with Chefs and Celebs is a monthly wine dinner event where we will feature 12 of Tucson’s top chefs at PY Steakhouse. The chefs will help you create a 3-course dinner menu using 2 different cuts of beef. Each month we will feature a different Chef or Celeb from around the Southern Arizona region. No cuts of beef will be duplicated throughout the entire year, meaning 24 different cuts of beef will be used or “1 Steer”.
