  • Flourless dark chocolate torte with Italian meringue, caramel popcorn, and raspberry 

Wine pairings for each course are also available for an additional $70.

Chef Simmons states, “Restaurant Week is one of my favorite San Diego events.  With fantastic flavors and spectacular views of the beautiful Jamul countryside, dining at Prime Cut is relaxing, romantic, and, in many ways, a magical experience.  I can’t wait for Restaurant Week to bring more San Diegans to Jamul Casino® to see what we have to offer!”
