With just a week to go before Father’s Day, d.k Steak House is rolling out a rare opportunity to enjoy the exquisite flavors of the tender and juicy Tomahawk Ribeye.
On June 19, diners can experience the special Tomahawk Ribeye Dinner for Two ($170), which features a massive 32-ounce cut of beef with a choice of Caesar or d.k house salad, and garlic butter sautéed mushroom medley and potato au gratin on the side. Quantities are very limited, and these steaks will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, so diners are encouraged to make reservations early in the evening to ensure a swing at the tomahawk experience.
d.k Steak House is known for its stellar USDA Prime steak selections that are aged for 30 days and offer delicious, natural flavors as the beef is raised with no growth hormones, steroids or antibiotics. In addition, the restaurant also serves up an array of salads, starters, seafood and dessert selections that “wow” guests with each plate.
The restaurant is open nightly from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. in the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa. The heart-ofthe-house and service teams work tirelessly to engage with guests and make them feel comfortable by delivering stellar service with a professional touch.
“Guests can jump in with some appetizers before enjoying a steak, which is char-broiled in an 1,800-degree broiler to lock in that awesome flavor,” says chef/ owner Dave “D.K.” Kodama. “I tell my staff that if we take the time to care about making quality food and do that consistently, then I’m happy.”
d.k Steak House is also offering additional Father’s Day specials for guests to enjoy as part of an intimate dinner or large family gathering.
For starters, try the Mango BBQ Glazed Pork Ribs ($17) that are paired with shaved Brussels sprout slaw, charred Kahuku sweet corn and jalapeño relish.
Seared Fresh Island Ahi ($36) is bursting with fresh flavors, as it is accompanied by sautéed watercress, bean sprouts, lup cheong and ginger soy nage.
And, for dessert, end the evening on a sweet note with “Burnt” Cheesecake with Candied Bacon ($9.95), which is accented with caramel, dark rum whipped cream and toasted pecans.
General manager Mark Okamoto explains that “we are a traditional steakhouse with a semi-formal atmosphere and strive to help guests feel like they are part of our restaurant family. We would like each experience to be unique for every guest, and we understand that all diners are not the same.”
Okamoto encourages diners to make reservations, especially groups of six or larger, to ensure one’s party can be accommodated during the busy dinner service. Local diners are reminded that validated parking for up to three hours is offered to guests for use in the Waikiki Beach Marriott’s parking garage, which may be entered via Ohua Street.
