Herringbone is a popular ocean-to-table restaurant concept. Tropical Hawaii will become the latest destination for a trendy Herringbone restaurant.
Hakkasan Group is a respected, global hospitality company. This international brand has opened establishments in United States, Europe, Asia, plus the Middle East. The very first Herringbone restaurant opened in La Jolla, California near San Diego. There is much anticipation as the Herringbone Waikiki nears it grand opening.
The new Herringbone restaurant in Hawaii is scheduled to open later this spring. It is being designed by Ocio Design Group. They are utilizing elements from both the La Jolla and Santa Barbara restaurants. What is exciting is the inclusion of a fresh, indoor-outdoor design that will represent the tropical feel of Hawaii.
The restaurant’s ocean-to-table concept is being created by Chef Brian Malarkey. The result is spectacular. The interior design creates a coastal restaurant vibe. The building was a brick warehouse but cleverly utilizes its bow truss ceiling. Hanging down are a series of upside down boats and canoes. But not just for show, they have been morphed into light fixtures. The fixtures use vintage Edison bulbs and are surrounded by olive trees that are imported.
The goal of this new ocean-to-table concept restaurant is to source line-caught fish, in addition to the freshest products. Coming from the ocean, ranch and field, all menu ingredients will be obtained within only 350 yards from the Pacific Ocean. Now that’s fresh!
The Herringbone Waikiki restaurant will provide wonderful views. It can be found on the open-air, third-level of the Grand Lanai of International Market Place in Waikiki on the island of Oahu. Enjoy the incredible hanging gardens that will surround the expansive, 2,000-square-foot lanai. The wood and flora “walls” are made from weathered wooden boxes. Each include fragrant herbs, that literally hang from the ceiling at different heights.
The dining atmosphere will be spectacular. The majority of the seating will be on the lanai. The Herringbone Waikiki ambiance will definitely be relaxed. Enjoy your fine dining experience with leather wing back chairs plus teal-colored metal chairs. The chair cushions pair perfectly with the tables. They are made from blackened steel and zinc, weathered oak, butcher block, as well as white-washed teak. As a result, the feeling while you dine at the Herringbone restaurant seems un-rushed.
