For this first time ever, Phoenix Vegan Restaurant Week is debuting this September in Phoenix, Arizona. The event was created by Chef Jason Wyrick in collaboration with Jozh Watson of Phoenix Vegan, and will feature exclusive, multi-course prix fixe menus and affordably priced items from local restaurants, fast-casual eateries, bakeries, coffee shops, food trucks, meal delivery services, and more.
Phoenix Vegan Restaurant Week Founders
Chef Wyrick is a culinarian, speaker, author, publisher, and business owner. In 2006, Wyrick launched The Vegan Taste, a fully plant-based meal delivery service that features globally inspired, pre-made dishes. In 2019, Wyrick opened Casa Terra, Phoenix’s first all-vegan fine dining restaurant.
Watson, a longtime vegan advocate and the mind behind Phoenix Vegan—a website that highlights the area’s plant-based eats, drinks, lifestyle, culture, tips, and happenings—partnered with Wyrick as a way to bring the community together for a week that celebrates all things vegan.
