From CUSP ReportsThere’s nothing quite like catching a sunset in La Jolla. However, what makes the experience even better is watching the sun drop behind the Pacific Ocean, glass of wine in hand, and enjoying a delicious meal. That’s exactly what you’ll find at Cusp Dining & Drinks, the 11th floor restaurant high atop Hotel La Jolla.
The restaurant’s new Sunset Supper menu invites guests to enjoy a nightly two-course prix fixe meal during the prime sunset hours, 5 to 6 p.m. Now, sweeping ocean views and a sunset don’t have to be saved for special occasions. At Cusp, affordable sunset dining is an everyday experience.
Under the direction of Executive Chef Donald Lockhart, the Cusp team has created a two-course menu of coastal Mediterranean-inspired dishes to be savored nightly.
Choose a first course, which includes Chef Lockhart’s locally favored Toasted Quinoa with Yellowtail, curry cream and pita chips, as well as fresh salads and soups. Second course entrees offer options like Shrimp Ricotta Gnocchi with sautéed rock shrimp and roasted peppers in a white wine garlic sauce, Red Wine Braised Short Ribs and Mustard Glazed Chicken.
To compliment Chef Lockhart’s dishes, Cusp’s lead bartender, Chris Burkett, has created a cocktail menu that includes classics like the Boulevardier, Negroni and Ramos Gin Fizz alongside balanced, signature drinks using fortified spirits, house-made syrups and fresh juices. Guests can also pick from 60 wines by the bottle and the glass or choose from the collection of bottled and draught craft beers to accompany their meal.
Sunset Suppers are offered daily for $25 a person, 5-6 p.m. To make a reservation, visit Cusp on
