Four Seasons Hualalai Dining

never reealy liked the buffet nights at hualalai. however, over the course of our 6 visits pahuia was always incredible, if expensive. the grille has changed directions a number of times, but i wouldn't hesitate for a minute to eat there. at very least sit at the bar and try some app's.
we always found the food outside of the hotel to be decent and certainly cheaper,but to pay the kind of $ hualalai costs it just didn't feel right to leave. especially for roy's!!!!

never made it to merriman's, that may be worth it but quite a drive at night.

rome -gambero rosso 3 bicchiere dinner

will be there a bit too late but would definitely go if the timing was right. i love events where there is a focus on wine. especially tre bicchiere!
are there many events like this in rome? in nyc there seems to be a couple every week,
