It was a mad rush and lots of sleepless nights leading up to last Friday, but we did it! Piggy Smalls, our second restaurant, is now open! Check out the great press from Honolulu Magazine and Frolic Hawaii (Mahalo to Frolic for producing the video above).
The restaurant, located in the old Kua Aina space at Ward Centre, will be open 7 days a week. For more info, head over to the official website or also follow Piggy Smalls on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat!
There was so much enthusiasm and good will, and it was such a fun time! People marveled at the cool new mural that is the centerpiece of the restaurant, designed by Steven Lam and Matthew Tapia; diners enjoyed the new menu, driven by head chef Brandon Lee and pastry chef Gino Ojano; and the experience was, overall, truly fun and it seems that diners are loving the new restaurant! Mahalo for your patience and your patronage!
In the meantime, its business as usual for the rest of of our services, including farmers market, which will be on its regular schedule this week. We are also going to be at the Taste of Town event at the Royal Hawaiian this Friday, October 21, a fundraiser for the Arthritis Foundation.
