Tentative Maui Eating Plan
Heading to Maui next week -- three nights in Hana and four in Kaanapali. We plan to cook at the condo in Hana, maybe nip over to the Paniolo Lounge one night for drinks and snacks. For Kaanapali we have reservations at the Feast at Lele, Merriman's, and Lahaina Grill. I have left one night open -- any burning recommendations? I'm pretty set on Merriman's (though Hunt's $400+ tab has me a bit skittish). Will Lahaina Grill cuisine be too similar to Merrimans? I seriously considered Gerard's, but am waffling on another big, expensive meal. I'm open to second guesses and armchair quarterbacking... P.S. Best Mai Tai on Kaanapali?
Depending on when you are in Kaanapali there are some really good winemaker dinners happening up at Kapalua. I'm going to the Plantation House (which I love anyway) for the Scherrer dinner. The views are so fantastic from that restaurant and the sunsets are awesome as well. I like the fact they source so much from the local farm and local meats.
