Last night, May and I had the pleasure of attending the Hawaii Food and Wine Festival's closing event, the Hukilau Beach Cookout, at the luxurious Kahala Hotel with our great friends, Scott and Patsy Saiki and Jill and Jay Kauka, as well as Hawaii's Governor David Ige and our lovely First Lady Dawn Ige. 11 of Hawaii's best chefs, including Alan Wong, Andrew Le, Ed Kenney, Elmer Guzman, George Mavrothalassitis, Lee Anne Wong, Mark "Gooch" Noguchi, Michelle Karr-Ueoka, Roy Yamaguchi, Vikram Garg, and Wayne Hirabayashi, gathered for the evening, serving their dishes fireside in the relaxing outdoor ambience. It was a great evening of friends and a wonderful showcasing of the culinary talent that Hawaii has to offer!

"Starbucks provides an open, inviting gathering place near the heart of our lobby, and adds another great option for our guests and neighbors to grab a drink or a bite to eat at Ala Moana Hotel," Ala Moana Hotel general manager Bill Comstock said in a statement.
The 88-seat cafe will be one of the few locations in the state to feature Starbucks Reserve, an exclusive selection of coffee blends that appear in limited editions throughout the year.
"We believe the diverse mix of business travelers, leisure guests and locals who visit the hotel will find that Starbucks is a perfect complement to their stay," Starbucks store manager Cody Allen said in a statement.
In addition to the new Starbucks location, Ala Moana Hotel is also home to several restaurants, including Plantation Café, The Signature Prime Steak and Seafood, and Royal Garden Chinese Restaurant.
