|Plantation House Restaurant is renowned by visitors and local residents for its casual elegance and island style ambiance. Since opening in the Kapalua Resort in 1991, The Plantation House has earned a top reputation among Maui’s best restaurants for serving innovative cuisine in a picturesque setting overlooking the fairways of the award-winning Plantation Golf Course.
|The AAA Four Diamond and Mobil Four Star Spago opened at the Four Seasons Resort Maui in 2001, teaming America’s greatest chef with the world’s finest hotel group. The Asian-inspired contemporary design is crafted with unique stone, wood, exotic sea anemone murals and custom glass that frames spectacular views of the Maui coastline and neighboring islands. The room is sophisticated, yet relaxed, with carefully selected furnishings that provide both family comfort and romantic evenings both indoors or on the exterior lanai. All this creates the perfect stage for Chef Cameron Lewark’s brilliant menu, using Hawaii’s premier produce, fish and meats, with the styling that made Spago famous. The restaurant has an intimate lounge area and bar with a private dining room for special events. There also is a separate children’s menu.
|We opened in 1990 as a little 55-seat bistro off Lahaina’s thoroughfare called Front Street, and almost 20 years later Lahaina Grill has garnered international-acclaim as culinary Mecca—these days, it’s sometimes difficult to book one of the restaurant’s 130 seats! Considered by many to be Maui’s prettiest, freestanding restaurant, the soft tones are accented by a gorgeous, pressed tin ceiling. The tabletops are set with fine china, flatware and crystal. The artwork hanging throughout the restaurant is by Maui’s premier colorist, Jan Kasprzycki. His big, bountiful paintings are the perfect complement to the distinctive flavors found in the food.

AUSTRALIA FIRES RAGE ON
by Jeff Stark
As I write this Australia is still burning. Some reports indicate that well over 100 fires in nearly every section of the continent are out of control. Estimates of wildlife loss go as high as 1 billion, including many endemic species which may go extinct as a result of the fires. So far about 15 million acres have burned across the country - an area roughly the size of West Virginia - and there is no reason to believe that these fires won't continue burning and growing for a long time to come.
Australia's fires are, in part, a function of the longest drought in Australia since Europeans first began to settle the continent. For several years the Australia fire season has grown by leaps and bounds and will undoubtedly continue and accelerate. Climate change is making wild fires hotter and more dispersed all the time. As urban development all over the globe continues, ... MORE
