June 2007

Black&Blue, "The Place for Steak," is a contemporary American steakhouse with Las Vegas flair and San Diego attitude, featuring Southern California's finest steaks and freshest seafood as well as an innovative wine list and creative cocktails. T he room has been designed with deep woods, rich granites and sensual style to transport every guest into a world of indulgence and taste. Along with prime cuts of filet mignon, New York strip and Porterhouse steaks, Black&Blue will also feature fresh salmon and halibut, unique appetizers and decadent homemade desserts as well as their signature Surf & Turf presentation with a casino twist-should a guest desire, they can choose to gamble for the price of their meal.

The Black&Blue restaurant and lounge will be open seven days a week, with the lounge opening daily at 2 p.m. and the restaurant opening nightly at 4:30 p.m.

In addition to working as the executive chef at La Jolla's renowned Café Japengo, Chef James Montejano has worked with some of the top restaurants in California including Aqua in San Francisco, Pacifica Del Mar, Pamplemousse Grill in Solana Beach and the Four Season Carlsbad. Restaurant manager Adam Saks has extensive hospitality management experience, working for companies such as Hyatt Hotels, Caesars Palace, Cohn Restaurant Group and Planet Hollywood.

"With Chef James and Adam at the helm combined with the amazing guest service provided by our entire team, we are confident that Black&Blue will quickly become one of San Diego's favorite dining destinations, not only for casino patrons but for local foodies as well," said Anthony Layton-Matthews, vice president of food and beverage at Valley View Casino. "We can't wait to show the world our beautiful new restaurant on June 1st."

Valley View Casino Executive Chef Josef Pilz agreed, "Our focus on using only the finest quality meats, seafood and produce along with the exquisite presentation of each dish will make Black&Blue a culinary experience that our guests will never forget."
