Award-winning Chef Peter Merriman recently announced his concept for his newest restaurant, Merriman’s Kauai, located in Poipu’s new retail shopping center, Kukuiula Village. Scheduled to open in late August of this year, this will be Chef Merriman’s first restaurant on the island of Kauai to offer Hawaii Regional Cuisine. In keeping with a 22-year tradition of supporting and advocating on behalf of local farmers and using fresh, local ingredients, Merriman’s Kauai will showcase 90% of local product in all dishes – a standard unsurpassed in the Hawaiian culinary world.
“Since our food is fresh from the field, often picked in the morning and served in the evening, we provide the freshest preparation of each product,” Chef Merriman says. “By preparing fresh local foods on-site, guests enjoy a real dining experience that is unique to our island home.”
