A progressive dinner is a dining experience held at different venues. Diners “progress” from location to location, enjoying a different course at each one.
The event is a benefit for LRF, a nonprofit that works to restore, maintain and interpret the physical, historical and cultural legacy of Lahaina, the first capital of the Kingdom of Hawai‘i.
You’ll feast at three historic sites surrounded by the rich history of old Lahaina and enjoy gourmet dishes created by acclaimed local chefs especially for this occasion.
The party also includes a dinner theater show and live musical entertainment, plus trolley and shuttle transportation with historical narration between each site.
The participating chefs are Mala Ocean Tavern owner Mark Ellman, The Pineapple Grill Executive Chef Ryan Luckey, and Sheldon Simeon and Jay Kulukulualani of Star Noodle. The ticket price includes locally brewed Maui Brewing Co. beer, wines by Chambers and Chambers, and Southern Wine and Spirits, and a sumptuous dessert buffet.
Each evening will begin at 5:45 p.m. at Wo Hing Museum, where Chefs Simeon and Kulukulualani will prepare Asian-themed appetizers with a contemporary local-style twist in honor of the famous setting.
The salad and entree course will be offered at the Old Lahaina Prison, where inmates of old would never even have dreamed of such a meal as the one!
On Friday night, Chef Ellman will serve a main course of Black River Farms Gold Label Kobe Tenderloin and Local Hawaiian Ahi with Organic Shoyu, and Sake Sauce with Ginger Scented Quinoa with Pumpkin and Black Garlic Sauce.
On Saturday night, Chef Luckey will serve a main course of Gochujang Grilled Short Ribs and Moloka‘i Prawns with Local Baby Carrot Slaw and Spring Corn Risotto.
The final course will be the grand dessert buffet, featuring tantalizing dessert specialties from many of Lahaina’s finest restaurants and resorts, served in the courtyard of the Pioneer Inn.
Seats are limited, so make reservations early (over 21 only). Purchase tickets at $135 (all inclusive) for either Friday or Saturday evening.
Enjoy an evening with family and friends while supporting the restoration and preservation of Lahaina’s historic sites.
