Waikoloa Beach Resort, Hawai‘i-the Big Island—Waikoloa Grill'n Bar announces the addition of two innovative new chefs to the culinary team, and introduces their fresh new all-day menu, already generating "buzz" in the restaurant formerly known as Buzz's Sand Trap, in Waikoloa Beach Resort.
Chefs Eric Sutphin and Aulani Webber will work along with seasoned restaurateur Dickie Furtado, who remains at the helm of Waikoloa Grill'n Bar, to offer diners a fresh flair for lighter, healthier menu choices, side-by-side with timeless favorites and comfort food.
"The chefs' new dishes are designed for seekers of fresh island flavors that you want to taste when you're on vacation, because you don't find them anywhere else," said co-owner Dickie Furtado. "They make a Paella with fresh caught mahimahi, scallops, Portuguese sausage, clams, shrimp, garlic, Maui onion and saffron. The Grilled Caesar Salad can be customized with choice of shrimp, chicken, or steak, and wait till you taste the Signature Calamari. But not to worry, our tried and true favorites are still on the menu—the classic steak and salad meals, our Big Island meatloaf, Chicken Cordon Blue and Friday,Saturday and Sunday Prime Rib Special," he said. The restaurant has daily featured plates with steaks, seafood and more.
"It's exciting to see Waikoloa Grill'n Bar changing their game a bit and bringing a something ‘new to the table,'" said Waikoloa Beach Resort Vice President of Operations Scott Head. "Waikoloa Beach Resort is proving itself as a dining destination—in addition to shopping, golf, accommodations and all the other things we have to offer. And we're proud to have Waikoloa Grill'n Bar as one of our resort's fine venues."
