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. Participating restaurants are offering special pricing, special menus, and special dishes just for Restaurant Week, and a portion of the proceeds from the week will go towards supporting the Culinary Institute of the Pacific.
