But this culinary celebration isn’t just about food; it’s also about giving back to the community. The event will benefit the Hawaii Restaurant Association Education Foundation, which supports Hawaii’s culinary and restaurant management high schools by awarding annual scholarships to high school students pursuing higher education in hospitality. The School Grant Program, another initiative of the foundation, tailors support based on specific school needs, which may include supplies, equipment, training programs for educators, and more.

One of the highlights of the evening is the opportunity for guests aged 21 and above to savor a signature dish from each participating restaurant. This means you can explore the culinary wonders of some of Hawaii’s most renowned eateries all in one place.

The featured restaurants include Restaurant 604, Agaru, Maile’s Thai, Arancino, Dean & Deluca, Cino, Hyatt Regency Waikiki, Kitchen Door Napa, Nami Kaze, Pesca, Peso, Zigu, Oysters Hawaii, and Pop Culture.
