The anonymous entryway through the black glass building at the Maui Tech Park should tip you off: This is something different for Maui. For starters, it’s open long after most island residents have knocked off for the day. This hole-in-the-wall hosts late-night “knife fights,” during which local celebrity chefs battle for the CPB crown. It’s crazy, decadent fun, worth postponing bedtime for. From lunchtime on, this eatery is a gluttonous celebration of pork, beef, bourbon, and beer. Burgers are served on brioche buns and topped with bacon jam, bourbon pickled veggies, or Sriracha aioli. The pork belly banh mi comes with foie gras butter. The Brussels sprouts and mac and cheese both have devout fans—maybe something to do with bacon?
