Executive Chef Ryan Clark is pleased to announce the third annual Dinner with Chefs series of culinary events at PY Steakhouse. For the new year, the theme has been updated to highlight local and regional beverage experts or “libationists.”

Dinner with Chefs is a monthly dinner series at PY Steakhouse that Chef Clark began two years ago. In 2017, renowned Tucson chefs, and in 2018, local celebrities, worked with Chef Clark and his culinary team once a month to create a unique three-course dinner using mindfully-sourced ingredients. Past Dinner with Chefs guest chefs have included nationally renowned James Beard Winner Chef Norman Van Aken, and local sports star AQ Shipley from the Arizona Cardinals.

For the 2019 series, each dinner will feature a special guest beverage expert, such as a wine maker, sommelier, bartender, brewer, or distiller, who will collaborate with Chef Clark, PY Steakhouse GM/Sommelier Jennifer Aspery, and the Casino Del Sol culinary team to create a multi-course dinner with paired beverages. The menus will all feature five-star Arizona prime beef and Arizona-grown products from more than 30 of Casino Del Sol’s local purveyor partnerships.

Prices range from $75-$125 plus gratuities. To make reservations call PY Steakhouse at 520-324-9350 or email Jennifer Aspery
