Maui: Best Chef's Tasting
The Mrs. and I enjoying a good tasting menu. It is also our 10yr anniversary, and we will be in Kaanapali for 2weeks. Here is what I would like help with:
1. Best Tasting menu for Anniversary night ( I know the Banyan tree does one for $150 but others come in around $45 like David Paul's). For this night, I would love a 9-12 course all-out tasting experience (ala Alan Wong's in HNL)
2. Since we will be there for a couple weeks, I could see us hitting up a few others especially if they are a good deals in the $40-60 range....
If possible please include approximate cost and approximate number of courses

To me, this is a simple one. Spago is the only tasting menu on the island that would place for a tasting menu in a large mainland city--although I haven't tried or heard much about the Banyan Tree's tasting The tasting menus at Lahaina Grille and David Paul's are more like "sampler" menus than true multi-course tastings. Of course, Spago will be an hour's drive for you.

I agree with you mnadel. I had the meal of a lifetime there just having whatever inspired him to cook. They suggest to plan on 3 hours at least to eat. I just had some of his amazing indonesian inspired fish in lettuce cups at an event in Kapalua and I had 3 as they were so good!
