Maui: Dine-around in Wailea
I’m finally catching back up to my Maui trip last weekend! As part of the Maui Agricultural Festival activities, the media and visiting chefs were treated to a dine-around at top Wailea restaurants: Capishe? has been around for more than a decade and has won numerous awards, but I’ve never had the opportunity to dine there. Ka’ana Kitchen in the Andaz Maui just opened last year, and I got to eat there last month (click here for the blog post). And the newest of the three is Migrant Maui, which took over the bar area of Mala Wailea — a restaurant within a restaurant.
This was especially fun to be able to talk story with the chefs at each restaurant and get to know them better. The cocktails were also nicely done, but I think my favorite was being able to rattle off my drink preferences to Ka’ana Kitchen’s bartenders and see what they came up with.

We started at Capische, and what an innovative way to set up a pupu party! Chef Chris Kulis set up all the items on a gigantic marble slab so we could help ourselves to what we liked: cheeses, meats, bread, fish, radishes wrapped with sashimi, pickled vegetables, you name it. It was an artful charcuterie board, for sure.
These are just the highlights; for all of my photos, click here.
