Although Chef Jojo Vasquez left in 2018 to helm the kitchen at Maui Brewing Co., the former chef’s multicultural approach still applies at this dramatic destination for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, sitting amid lush golf greens with panoramic ocean views. Kona kampachi and Kauai prawns benefit from a Thai curry with snowpeas and lotus root, while Hawaiian ahi appears in Japanese style: katsu with baby bok choy, shiitake mushrooms, and a wasabi reduction. The “comfort food” half of the menu offers not only a ribsticking beef ragu fettucine but also a caulifower steak. At breakfast, enjoy a bowl of flawlessly ripe tropical fruit or choose from “Six Degrees of Benediction,” a half-dozen Benedicts made with such delicacies as Korean style pork belly, roasted Maui vegetables (superb), or seared ahi with wasabi hollandaise. Lunch is less intriguing, but the adoboloco fried chicken sandwich remains as a shoutout to Vasquez’ Filipino heritage; it also appears on the limited grill menu, which bridges lunch and dinner with savory if pricey fare like ahi poke tacos, a bacon cheese burger, and baby-back ribs ($19–$23).
