With tax day just a week away (April 18), 3660 on the Rise has a “Tax Relief” special April 10-15, offering 50 percent off all wines. Pair that with 3660’s award-winning menu, and you’re sure to get a great return.
Since opening its doors in 1992, the casual fine-dining restaurant on Waialae Avenue has become a favorite for Pacific Rim cuisine. Among its signature dishes are Ahi Katsu, Crab Cakes, New York Steak Alaea and Roast Rack of Macadamia Nut Crusted Lamb.
“The concept has stayed the same,” says chef de cuisine Lydell Leong. “We have our favorites that have been on the menu since day one that people keep coming back for.”
Those original dishes make up about half of 3660’s menu, while the other half features a rotation of new creations by Leong and executive chef Russell Siu.
While the restaurant has its regular clientele, it’s also a popular place for special occasions, such as birthdays and anniversaries.
With Mother’s Day coming up May 8, treat Mom to 3660 on the Rise’s special Mother’s Day Brunch Buffet ($55 adults, $23 keiki ages 3 to 10 years old) available from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Menu highlights include oyster’s on the half shell, assorted poke, omelet station, waffle station, char siu with steamed bun, corn and egg drop soup, an array of salads, Eggs Benedict, Fire Roasted Soy Sake Marinated
Chicken, Pan Roasted Salmon, Seafood Creole, Roast Prime Rib of Beef and assorted desserts. Reservations are still available; call 737-1177 to book.
A Flavorful Journey
For April, 3660 on the Rise offers its monthly dinner special of Maine Lobster Tail for just $12 with the purchase of any entrée (available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday). Seasoned with salt, pepper and paprika, topped with butter and served with a wedge of lemon, the lobster is oven roasted, then pulled out and served on its shell.
Among the restaurant’s popular main course dishes is Soy Sake Fillet of Butterfish ($34). It’s made with Alaskan line-caught butterfish marinated in soy sake and broiled to a nice golden brown. Enjoy it with a bed of fire-roasted baby bok choy and shiitake mushrooms, along with a tasty Hatcho Miso Dashi Nage (sauce). Plus, it’s boneless.
For dessert, you can’t go wrong with 3660’s famous bread pudding, which can be found on the menu as Pudding on a Whim ($9). Always a favorite, the bread pudding is available daily in different flavors. In the past, it’s been prepared with chocolate chips, caramel, various berries, apple, nuts, cinnamon and, on Dining Out‘s recent visit, peanut butter and Concord grape jelly.
