Jamul Casino plans to celebrate its third anniversary by welcoming celebrity chef Jeremiah Tower to take over the casino’s fine dining steakhouse, Prime Cut.  The legendary chef will host two dinner seatings on Saturday, October 12 at 5pm and 7:30pm and Lobster Brunch on Sunday, October 13 from 11am-3pm to toast the casino’s anniversary.  The interactive Saturday night meals will feature highlights of his biographical documentary Jeremiah Tower: The Last Magnificent, and a cooking demonstration from the menu Chef Tower has prepared specifically for this occasion.  The cost is $175 per guest, and reservations can be made at OpenTable.com. 

Jeremiah Tower is one of the most influential figures of American food.  Our nation’s first celebrity chef, Tower is the pioneer of the culinary style known as California cuisine.  Winner of three James Beard Foundation Awards, Tower is best known for his tenure as chef at Chez Panisse and his own legendary San Francisco restaurant, Stars (1984 – 1998), which was one of the country’s top-grossing restaurants and most talked-about eateries.  He has also written numerous books, including the James Beard award-winning New American Classics

Jamul Casino’s ability to partner with celebrity chefs like Jeremiah Tower is reportedly one of several reasons the casino is earning a reputation as a top culinary destination in San Diego County.  Past celebrity chef guests have included Claudia Sandoval, Alex Guarnaschelli, and Gail Simmons, and Prime Cut has also been host to two of only 67 Certified Master Chefs in the world.

“At Jamul Casino, we pride ourselves on offering unique experiences—whether that’s dancing with Lady Luck on our gaming floor or delighting your taste buds at one of our seven restaurants,” said President and General Manager of Jamul Casino, Mary Cheeks.  ‘We are thrilled to welcome Jeremiah Tower to help us celebrate our third anniversary by offering another one-of-a-kind experience to our guests.”
