The Dining Room, the acclaimed restaurant at Four Seasons Resort Lāna‘i, The Lodge at Koele, introduces a new menu featuring American cuisine with European style and rustic Hawaiian ingredients.
Chef de Cuisine Junior Ulep created the new menu with inspirations from his home island of Lāna‘i combined with his travels and world cuisine.
“This menu is one that truly reflects the look, feel and flavours of The Lodge,” says Chef Junior. “The rich tradition of extraordinary dining experiences here is now heading to an even higher level.”
A spectacular four-course tasting menu is offered nightly, along with an optional wine pairing. The tasting menu will change every couple of weeks, based on availability of the freshest and most seasonal ingredients.
The a la carte menu features appetisers such as kona crab and cognac bisque; crispy veal sweetbreads; Waimea heirloom tomato salad; and the Lodge’s famous lava rock-seared Lāna‘i venison. Main courses include black pepper-crusted Hawaiian ahi; Colorado rack of lamb; Keahole lobster; duck breast; and grass-fed and wagyu beef steaks. Desserts include new style chocolate tart; pineapple crème brûlée; soufflé; and cheese selections.
