Dishes are set at $7,$10 or $15 per person, with a few $10 and $25 options per couple, and some will throw in coffee, a mimosa or other drink.

WATER at Phoenix Art Museum

Through September 18

In a season when this liquid life source is especially prominent on our minds, a recent exhibit at Phoenix Art Museum from artist Edward Burtynsky reminds us of the human relationship with earth’s precious resource in modern life. His stunning aerial photography of water ecosystems are on view through September.
