FARM FRESH (From left) The Pint & Cork’s Spicy Beef Salad uses seared rare beef, mint, cilantro, cucumber, tomato, lime and Hawaiian chili pepper. Tommy Bahama’s Ko‘ala mahi mahi is served on a bed of quinoa succotash and sprinkled with a Meyer lemon vinaigrette.

TO CHANGE or not to change the menu? It’s

an existential question for many restaurateurs who try to find a balance between keeping up with trends and staying consistent. Some believe if it isn’t broken, why fix it? Others think that updating their menus keeps the chef sharp and on his or her toes. Yet, both camps agree that there are core dishes on their menu that they would never—ever—touch. “Our ‘Bib’ burger, mac ‘n’ cheese, hand-cut fries and warm mushroom salad will always be on our menu,” The Pint & Cork managing partner Scott Pacer wrote in an email. “They’re our classics.” Topped with white cheddar, bacon, charred onions, tomato, arugula and a fried egg, the “Bib” burger is aptly named because of its messiness—but

in a good way. You’ll need to press down on the brioche bun before you can even bite into this thick burger. Be sure to share a side of the hand-cut fries sprinkled with garlic and Parmesan or the spicy beef salad drizzled with Hawaiian chili pepper vinaigrette. Billed as “World Famous Coconut Shrimp,” it would be impossible to remove this appetizer from the Tommy Bahama menu. The same could be said about the ahi tacos and the guava-glazed baby back pork ribs. Best described as Baja-meets-Hawai‘i, the menu here features a category heading of “Bungalow Favorites,” which highlights the restaurant’s best sellers, including Parmesan-crusted Sanibel chicken, seared ahi tuna, crab-stuffed shrimp, Caribbean-rubbed mahi mahi and macadamia-nut-crusted fresh island fish.

“Some of the staples have been in the company longer than [I have],” said Tommy Bahama culinary director Don Donley in an interview with FSR Magazine. “These dishes are synonymous with the Tommy Bahama name.” With “cheeseburger” the key word in its name, it’s easy to guess what this restaurant’s iconic dish is: thick and juicy hamburger patties. The idea of opening a burger joint stemmed from co-founder Laren Gartner’s hunt for a quality cheeseburger on Maui in 1989. But it wasn’t until Edna Bayliff came home with a Jimmy Buffett tape that the pair found the perfect name—Cheeseburger in Paradise, which has since morphed into Cheeseburger Grille & Tap Room. Yet, it’s still all about the cheeseburger. Prepared with 100 percent fresh Black Angus beef from Harris Ranch Meats, the no-frills, half-pound patty 30

is slathered with Thousand Island dressing, lettuce, tomato and onions, all sandwiched between a saltand-pepper bun. For a burger with “attitude,” try the signature “five-napkin” cheeseburger topped with a slice of Colby Jack. Not in the mood for red meat? The pineapple-and-bourbon-glazed huli huli chicken packs a lot of flavor. A Maui institution, Longhi’s has endured the test of time ever since it opened in 1976. “Anything that’s done ‘Longhi’ style represents our classic, signature dishes,” said executive chef Paul Gonsalez. “And that includes the filet mignon and lobster.” The lobster Longhi combines a one-pound Kona lobster with shrimp, mussels and calamari, all sautéed in olive oil and garlic then drowned in a spicy Maui basil marinara sauce. It’s the ultimate seafood entrée and a favorite among new and returning guests.

Ruth’s Chris has an advantage over other steak houses with its 1,800-degree oven. Another signature dish is the Longhi appetizer, a large artichoke finished with lemon, butter and a sprinkle of Parmigiano Reggiano. It’s simple but rich in flavor. Synonymous with USDA Prime steaks, Ruth’s Chris has an advantage over other steak houses that can be attributed to its custom-designed, 1,800degree oven, which quickly chars the beef while sealing in the juices. In addition to premium cuts of beef and fresh seafood, the upscale establishment showcases appetizers, including the must-have crab stack, a ramekin-shaped medley of diced avocado and mango that’s topped with shreds of Colossal blue crab. “It tastes as good as it looks,” said executive chef Daniel Bader of the crab stack. “Another one of our signature dishes is the Kumato tomato salad, which comes with fresh mozzarella and an aged balsamic glaze.”

So each time you attend an ARTWalk at The Shops, Concert at The By Anu Yagi Shops or other event, you’re aiding a good cause.

If dog is man’s best friend, then August is best-friend month at The Shops at Wailea through their partnership with Assistance Dogs of Hawaii. Mo and Will Maurer founded the nonprofit after working in the assistance-dog industry and discovering the difficulty Hawai‘i residents had in obtaining guide dogs. It has now blossomed into a multifaceted assistance-dog program that has received international recognition and awards, attracting interns from around the world who come to learn how to start programs in their own countries. While Assistance Dogs of Hawaii specializes in training highly skilled service dogs for people with physical disabilities that limit their mobility—and offers free lifetime follow-up training—the nonprofit also provides courthouse facility dogs, hospital facility dogs, seizure-response dogs and social-therapy dogs. It has also conducted the first research study that teaches dogs to detect life-threatening bacterial infections common for many people with disabilities. The study was published in the Oxford Journals last year. The organization aims to provide professionally trained dogs to individuals with disabilities in order to increase their independence and enhance their quality of life. 34

WONDER WOMEN

Women Helping Women is the featured nonprofit in October. What started as a grassroots endeavor to help and support female victims of domestic violence has grown into an established nonprofit that provides a variety of services to more than 600 women and their children each year. At its confidential emergency shelter facility, Hale Lokomaikai, women receive 24-hour care and crisis management. The shelter is meant to be an immediate, temporary escape from danger—providing women with basic living needs, including food—but the nonprofit also has transition programs to help women find a permanent home, job and other necessities to start an independent life. It also refers residents to services that offer legal help, counseling, support groups, services for children, employment programs, health services, educational opportunities and financial assistance. Through its shelter, transition and community education programs, Women Helping Women actively works toward ending domestic violence

by promoting advocacy, education and prevention while offering safety, support and empowerment to the women and children victims of domestic violence.

Maui’s two-part program targets the development of friendship and leadership. It provides socialization opportunities to help build meaningful, oneto-one friendships between people with and without IDD, erasing the invisible line that separates them. Through training and workshops, Best Buddies equips individuals with IDD with the skills and confidence to become leaders, public speakers and advocates. To date, the organization has positively impacted nearly 9,700 individuals with and without disabilities in Hawai‘i.

Pronounced ooh-koo-leh-leh (not “youkoo-lay-lay”), this four-stringed relative of the guitar is an offshoot of the Portuguese cavaquinho.

caught on in the Islands. Hawai‘i’s king at that time, the well-traveled and sophisticated David Kaläkaua, took a liking to the sound of the diminutive string instrument and had it incorporated into performances for the Royal Court. So rapid was its rise in popularity that within 10 years of its arrival in the Islands, the ‘ukulele became Hawai‘i’s most popular musical instrument. Over the years, the original Portuguese design evolved in Hawai‘i with a look and sound of its own, and the modern ‘ukulele was born.

The more exposure the instrument gets, the more people will be encouraged and inspired to pick up the ‘ukulele.” Since his mom put an ‘ukulele in his hands at the age of 4, Shimabukuro has honed his skills, earning local, national and international fame. “I think I’ve just scratched the tip of the surface with the ‘ukulele,” he says. “It has tons of room to grow and so much potential.”

Studying the strumming movements of Jay, Rachel Trimble of St. Paul, Minn., quickly learned how to play “You are My Sunshine,” much to the delight of her proud husband, Don Trimble, who commented she was the musician of the family. Seated next to Rachel, Dale Karr of Seattle, Wash., laughed as he fumbled through the song, demonstrating his lack of finger dexterity. “It looks like a fun instrument to play,” says Karr, citing this as his reason for attending the class. “It’s certainly a far cry from Tiny Tim’s ‘Tiptop Through the Tulips.’” Resembling a miniature guitar, the ‘ukulele comes in four-, six- and eight-string varieties, is fairly simple to play at a basic level of strumming and chording, and can be lots of fun to learn. “Everyone can learn how to play,” Jay says. “And they can take home the experience and continue to practice.” Debbie Perez was pleased with her performance after Jay’s class, so much so that she went to buy her own ‘ukulele. “I have always wanted to learn how to play the ‘ukulele,” beams the Kïhei resident. “But I’m a little embarrassed because I live so close and it has taken me so long to just come out and do this.” Fellow students Nelishah Jiwani and Fazilla Habib of Toronto, Canada, were happy that they took Jay’s class. “It was awesome,” Habib says. “We weren’t planning on taking a lesson but we were glad that we just happened upon it. It’s definitely one of the highlights of our trip.” The ‘ukulele can vary greatly in quality, appearing as an inexpensive, mass-produced toy for children or costing thousands of dollars when made from prized koa wood. The Shops’ Mele ‘Ukulele offers a wide variety of ‘ukulele, from soprano and tenor to concert and baritone. “The ‘ukulele is the easiest stringed instrument to learn to play,” Jay says. “I love doing this because it’s so nice when you see people smiling and then come up to me to shake my hand at the end of the class.”

'ukelele clasSes ‘Ukulele classes are geared toward any skill level and are held Mondays from 5:30 to 6:30 pm and Fridays from 3 to 4 pm at the main fountain courtyard. T he Sho p s at Wa il ea
