PHOENIX -- Arizona Restaurant Week starts Saturday and runs through Sept. 29.

Two hundred restaurants in Phoenix and Tucson are participating.  They're offering three and four course meals for $30 and $40. 

"This is the best time of year for foodies to get out and try a new restaurant," said Tiffanie Hawkins of the Arizona Restaurant Association.

Chef Hudson Shorter of Central Bistro is excited for his first year with Restaurant Week at Central Bistro. 

"To give back to the community. Great dishes at great prices," said Shorter.

The Arizona Restaurant Association is also giving diners a chance to donate when they dine.

They're asking people to text PCH30 to 50555 to give a $10 donation to the Phoenix Children's Hospital in honor of its 30th year.
