Hawaii Restaurant Week and Other News! Oct. – Nov.

Ok, I know I have been deliquent with the posts about Hawaii Food News, but I got plenty stuff to do nowadays. Anyway, I’d like to share some foodtastic news with you all now!

It is Hawaii Restaurant Week (starting today, so yeah, I missed one day), but anyway Nov. 15 – 21, some 50 plus restaurants across the state will be having special menus. If you are interested, and I highly recommend taking advantage of the deals this week if you have free time, check out the listing here

In more fantastic restaurant news Honolulu Magazine has released its 2011 Hale Aina Award Winners list. You can check out the listing here. Soul, by Chef Sean Priester, won Gold for the “Best New Restaurant” category. Whats more is the HGC participated in Off-Menu’s Catering Service’s Off-Premise 2 with Chef Sean as the host chef of the night. Curious about how it all went down check out the following links:

In addition, Honolulu Magazine had an October write-up on Morimoto Waikiki. Hopefully, I can get my act together and post a review from the HGC’s Dinner last month there on One More Plate. However, in the meantime enjoy the HGC’s Flickr Photostream, as the latest pictures are from our meal there.

Korean Restaurants are also a highlight in this month’s Honolulu Magazine. Check out all the restaurants that they take a look at here. I for one love Korean food, and am a late night visitor to Sorabol and Cafe Duck Butt. May be when I get to that Morimoto’s review I’ll throw in a review on a Korean restaurant as well!

Lastly, let me mention Roberto Viernes interesting discussion of the concept of “paying it forward” as applied to the process known as Solera in winemaking. It consists of blending wines from consecutive harvests. Want to know more? Read it in his Midweek article here. I’m thinking of starting a post series here on the HGC known as “What Wine Do I Bring?” or something to that effect. As some of you know one of the HGC members is a sommelier and I always turn to him for the perfect wine to bring to house warmings, gifts, and just simple get-togethers. So look forward to it in the future!

See you all next time!
