The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas Cooks up New Restaurant

November 11, 2016

The Westin Kā‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas is cookin’ up something new.

On Friday, Oct. 28, the resort introduced its new restaurant, Auntie’s Kitchen, which replaced Ocean Pool Bar and Grill in the same venue poolside off of the resort’s south lobby.

Auntie’s Kitchen was designed to celebrate the melting pot of flavors and cuisine that make up Hawai‘i’s local culinary culture.

“With Auntie’s Kitchen, we aim to deliver a food and beverage experience that highlights the best that local Maui cuisine has to offer in a setting that is relaxed, approachable and evokes a sense of comforting familiarity and a welcoming ‘ohana,” said Brandon Maeda, director of food and beverage at The Westin Kā‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas.

“We are committed to serving quality food and drink prepared with care and the best ingredients.”

Auntie’s Kitchen is serving breakfast, lunch and dinner menus daily, including a la carte selections.

Prepared under the leadership of both Chef Tanya Doyle and Chef Brian Murphy, the dishes are inspired by local favorites and include the Dynamite ‘Ahi Poke Bowl, Local Plate Lunches, Seafood Stew, and Uncle’s Prime Rib.
