With breathtaking views of the pacific ocean and Molokini Crater far off in the distance, Bistro Molokini is a welcome oasis nestled within the grounds of the Grand Wailea. Boasting a new Chef and some delightful new menu items, this eatery for lunch, dinner and happy hour is a majestic yet casual respite from the more formal options in the surrounding area.
Just six months on the job, Chef De Cuisine Jo Soeung is originally from the Philippines, but has spent 16 years honing her skill sets and manning kitchens in Seattle. Now she calls upcountry Maui her home and she couldn’t be happier to bring her love of her heritage, superb leadership abilities and vibrant personality to the Grand Wailea’s 40-acre Waldorf Astoria Resort.
Menu options are bursting with flavor, innovation and global influences while harnessing the freshness and appeal of local produce from nearby farms. Many we asked from around the island of Maui… didn’t seem to know what, or where Bistro Molokini was, and some wondered if it was new. Surprisingly it is not new, but new to some and offering some great new menu items.
