What is the best place to dine or drink under the stars in your region?


Morimoto Maui, Andaz, Wailea
Beachfront setting, seamless outdoor, island-inspired dining

At Morimoto Maui, highly-acclaimed celebrity chef Masaharu Morimoto, best known for Iron Chef and Iron Chef America, uses locally-sourced, season-fresh ingredients from Hawaii to create a distinct culinary style that blends Western and Japanese traditions. The delectable hand-rolled sushi and sashimi is deliciously fresh and authentic in presentation.

  • French doors lead to the island-inspired dining room (Seamless, open, comfortable)
  • Gorgeous views from the outdoor terrace and bar  (Day-blue skies, starry nights, ocean breezes)
  • Sumptuous hand-rolled sushi and sashimi made fresh, daily (Excellent sushi and sashimi!)
  • Inspiring cocktails made from season-fresh fruits and ingredients (We personally enjoyed refreshing pomegranate)

The photo showcases our lunch choices at Morimoto Maui, along with Robert H. ‘Robbie’ Dein, Kenneth M. ‘Ken’ Hayo (of Maui Real Estate Advisors LLC), and Patrick Kilbride (of Title Guaranty, Wailea). Unfortunately, we didn’t remember to take a photo of the delicious sashimi and sushi before we thoroughly enjoyed devouring every last piece.
