ABOUT EATING HOUSE 1849 BY ROY YAMAGUCHI: Roy Yamaguchi’s ~ agship restaurant is Roy’s Hawaii Kai, which opened in December 1988. In the Roy Yamaguchi Group of Restaurants, there’s also Roy’s Waikiki, Roy’s Ko Olina, Roy’s Waikoloa on the Big Island and Roy’s Kaanapali on Maui, as well as Eating House 1849 at International Marketplace in Waikiki and Poipu, Kauai; Goen Dining + Bar in Kailua; and Humble Market Kitchin in Wailea.

“All of our restaurants are built on creativity and creativity is extremely important,” says Yamaguchi. “We are not perfect and we strive every day to make our food better, and that is what makes all of our group of restaurants evolve.”

LAND & SEA: Tender Beef Shortribs ($38) From our Land and Sea offerings, we have our tender braised short ribs with charred garlic chive chimichurri, Yukon mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts.

RICE AND NOODLES: Lobster Plantation Paella ($43) One of the popular favorites is the Seafood Paella ($43), made with tomato saffron rice with Portuguese sausage, lobster, shrimp and clams.
