Since its opening in January of this year, Liholiho Yacht Club has become a
must-try for foodies across the country. Chef Ravi Kapur has truly created
a unique space in the city where diners can enjoy creative dishes inspired
by traditional Hawaiian recipes.
To round out the aloha spirit, the vibe of Liholiho can only be described as relaxed, warm and inviting. Don’t be surprised when you find yourself in conversation with your neighboring table discussing which cocktail or dessert
to order (If you’re lucky – maybe you’ll even trade bites).
ALOHA COCKTAIL CULTURE
If the comfortable atmosphere and tropical color scheme aren’t enough to transport you to the islands, the bar program certainly will. Every cocktail features
ingredients reminiscent of a relaxing day on the beach. Think island tiki bar meets San Francisco cocktail culture.
Many of the drinks combine traditional Hawaiian ingredients with complex liqueurs - Plantation Pineapple Rum with Amaro Nonino, Falernum with Green
Chartreuse. Start your first course with my personal favorite, Surfer Rosa - house infused hibiscus Vida Mezcal, Punt e Mes, Benedictine, lemon and soda.
WHAT TO ORDER
The dinner menu features a range of small bites to massive entrees. For a light meal, order the tuna poke on a nori cracker or the fried oysters. Insider tip – ask for the housemade spam. It is not on the menu, but it is a must try! Dessert
is not to be skipped. The Baked Hawaii tastes just as good as it looks (see for yourself).
INSIDER TIP Take a selfie with the Aloha tiled floor at the entrance and tag #alohafloorselfie
