Celebrate life at Waikiki eatery

A La Carte

Treat yourself and loved ones to a luxurious meal at La Vie, which has been serving guests with a playful, modern culinary experience in its open-aired foyer since 2019. Enjoy the view of the Waikiki skyline, as you enrich yourselves with the eclectic new menu that chef de cuisine Patrick Collins has created specifically for the holiday.

La Vie believes it’s important to celebrate with truffles, and encourages its patrons to join the party with its White Truffles, Croatia, which includes potato gnocchi parisienne, chanterelles, ham and Gruyere fondue.

“This dish is all about the brief and wonderful gift from nature that is white truffles,” says Collins.

If you are craving savory and sweet, try La Vie’s Truffled Cheese Tarte with Tête de Moine cheese, Burgundy truffle, candied walnuts and Manoa honey.

Continue the festivities with the Traditional Caviar Service, which features two caviar options served with homemade crème fraiche, chives and warm Yukon potato blinis. First is the kaluga hybrid, which has a more buttery-soft, nutty taste, with hints of seaweed; second is osetra that consists of a traditional, briny, umami rich taste with a delicate smoky finish.

Finally, the Butter Poached Onaga ($15 supplement) is the perfect touch of red to complete the celebration and is accented by herbaceous tarragon and more umami. (Call for cost of dishes.)
