There may be a lot of restaurants that serve Pacific Rim cuisine, but 3660 on the Rise has managed to establish itself as a permanent fixture for nearly 30 years.

With a menu that features innovative creations by chef Russell Siu and chef de cuisine Lydell Leong, 3660 offers dishes that combine both European and Asian flavors. Plus, many of those dishes utilize local ingredients.

“We try to use local products to support the local producers, knowing that their products are fresher and more flavorful,” Leong says.

On Tuesday, 3660 will unveil four new dishes, including two desserts: Warm Lemon Pudding Cake and Lilikoi Creamsicle.

But for longtime patrons, don’t worry: The restaurant is keeping its classic favorites.

Also now available at the restaurant is a new offering: a three-course menu offered Tuesday-Friday for $57. The main course of the meal gives you a choice of either Soy Sake Butterfish or Baked Lobster Tail.

In Dessert Heaven

This Tuesday, indulge in Warm Lemon Pudding Cake ($9), a new dessert at 3660 On The Rise. The palate-tempting treat is served with vanilla-bean ice cream and fresh raspberries.

Another dessert addition, Lilikoi Creamsicle ($9), is a tart made of macadamia-nut crust with a layer of vanilla-bean semifreddo (a semi-frozen layer similar to frozen mousse) and lilikoi sorbet. This cool treat is finished off with a strawberry coulis and topped with macadamia-nut brittle meringue.
