Restaurant Week: What a Relief After APEC!
Restaurant week could not have come a better time this year, after all of the commotion over APEC everyone in Hawaii deserves a night out! Local restaurants will be supporting the Culinary Institute of the Pacific at Diamond Head by offering special menus and discounts at their establishments. This from the organizations homepage: “Restaurant Week Hawaii is a seven day celebration of the cuisine scene in Hawaii. From fine dining to fast-food, participating restaurants will feature special menu items, promotions and discounts. Diners can sample Hawaii’s newest restaurants, dine at old favorites and taste a variety of exceptional dishes now being prepared by Hawaii’s chefs using locally grown produce. Restaurant Week is a reminder that Hawaii is a culinary destination with top chefs, farm to table dining, wonderful wine and a lot more to discover and explore. The goal of Restaurant Week Hawai`i is to realize a vision of an advanced culinary campus—the Culinary Institute of the Pacific at Diamond Head. Graduates of Hawai`i’s first four-year culinary program will go on to serve Hawai`i’s restaurant and hospitality industry and ultimately the greater community.” Across all of the Hawaiian Islands there are approximately 90 restaurants participating in Restaurant week this year.
