Fresh Reopening A favorite lunch hideaway at the Honolulu Museum of Art (HMA), Spalding House will reopen Jan. 25 with a new chef, Susan Lai Hipp, and a new menu. Lai Hipp has cooked at 3660 on the Rise and Kakaako Kitchen and has designed the lunch menu to include contemporary appetizers, salads and sandwiches. Dishes include deviled eggs with a Serbian red-pepper sauce, curried quinoa salad with balsamic-roasted Brussels sprouts and butternut squash, a selection of paninis and more.
Tapping In A new eco-friendly and cost-effective option is now available for customers perusing the beer aisle. Whole Foods Market Kailua has added several keg options (5 and 15.5 gallon sizes) that start at $64.99 a keg–offering value quantities of local brews such as Maui Bikini Blonde and Aloha Lager, which keep fresh in sterilized containers for about two weeks.
Meet Me in the Lobby For the first time in 35 years, moviegoers at the Doris Duke Theatre have access to a concession stand, which sells snacks such as glazed almonds and Kona coffee-coated macadamia nuts from Hawaii’s Best Ever Nuts ($6), as well as baked goods including gluten-free muffins and peanut butter, oat and cranberry energy balls from Yummy Tummy ($3–$7).
More Times to Eat Sunday brunch has been added to the menu at Café Pulama in the Bishop Museum, held from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. Members receive a 10 percent discount. Brunch items include a variety of omelets ($12), bruschetta ($9.50), island classics such as loco moco ($10), steak and eggs ($13) and more.
