Guests can have more than one sense appeased at The Kahala Hotel & Resort’s Plumeria Beach House as Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winner Sean Naauao and friends will perform contemporary Hawaiian melodies and fan favorites on April 27. Don’t miss out on this one-night-only event with one of Hawaii’s most beloved musicians while indulging in a tantalizing menu.

The dinner menu offers a variety of delectable starters such as the Fried Ahi Poke Musubi ($25), which is the featured item of the month and has a portion of its sales donated to a local organization that supports the Kahala Initiative for Sustainability, Culture and the Arts.

The Gratin of Big Island Abalone ($24), which is served with a house-made warm baguette, and Chefs Onion Soup ($15) are also popular appetizers.

For entrées, a Kahala favorite is the Broiled Misoyaki Butterfish ($39) that is accompanied with Hamakua mushrooms and rice, pickled ginger, beurre blanc and steamed baby bok choy. Other options include the Signature 14-ounce Prime Rib-Eye “Steak Frites” ($68) or the Hawaiian Sea Fettucine ($30).

Other than this event, the restaurant offers a daily breakfast buffet, lunch curry buffet on Wednesdays, and seafood dinner buffet on Fridays and Saturdays.

Naauao is a slack-key guitarist and vocalist, composer and producer, whose repertoire runs from the most contemporary of island music to the heartfelt traditional Hawaiian mele.
