prima celebrates contemporary American cuisine in the heart of the gulch.

Exquisite food, wine and exemplary service combine to create a singular dining experience. From Executive Chef Salvador Avila's innovative fare to a soaring sculpture by acclaimed artist Bruce Munro, every detail at Prima is designed to delight.

Choose from seasonal selections of lusciously cut, wood-fired meats, whole fish, poultry and vegetables —  all prepared with the best quality ingredients from each season's harvest. Our dishes are prepared with skill, respect and restraint. Prima is open six nights a week, with breathtaking surroundings in the main room as well as five private rooms for more intimate gatherings or business events. A full bar menu featuring signature cocktails and snacks is available at 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. 


We offer complementary parking within the Terrazzo building. Please see a hostess for a parking voucher.
