Tomorrow is the big day for us! We are catering the grand re-opening of Nordstrom’s new location at Ala Moana Shopping Center! The move is part of the $573 million Ewa wing redevelopment of Hawaii's largest mall. The new three-floor, 185,000-square-foot location will put Nordstrom near the state's first Bloomingdale's store. 

The grand opening party is a huge, huge gig and we’ve got almost the entire crew working the event. The team has been prepping for the last two weeks for this big event. If you’re there, say hi and we hope you enjoy our menu!

But there’s no rest for weary because we have another event this Friday to celebrate the Moana Surfrider’s 115th anniversary with an Ocean Vodka Mixdown and would love to invite you to participate. The overall event is being held around an Ocean Vodka cocktail competition. Each participating restaurant will provide a pupu as well as a cocktail to be entered into the Ocean Vodka competition. We are looking for inspired Chefs and mixologists who are interested in promoting and showcasing their own talent and cuisine.

In the meantime, we’re on our regular schedule for the farmers markets:
