Dinner at Kauai Grill gets its own blog because it was so fabulous. Firstly, there is the reputation of the chef that precedes it. The very young Chef Colin Hazama is up for a James Beard award, and it's an honor to just be nominated. So we knew the food had to be pretty spectacular.
I enjoyed dinner immensely. My favorite was the foie gras and the ice cream, Claus' was the foie gras and the octopus. Honestly, it's all superb. If you bring your appetite, you might be able to eat everything I list here, but if not, cut out two side dishes or appetizers. The chef was kind enough to send out a couple starters, and of course, our eyes were bigger than our stomachs because everything on the menu sounded so good.
It's a good thing the restaurant was only steps away from our room, because we ate so much we fell into a blissful food coma after dinner!
