It would be simply mad to miss the 16th annual ‘Aipono Restaurant Awards! The Queen of Hearts bids you join us in honoring Maui’s culinary royalty as voted by you, our readers. No need to step through the looking glass or fall down a rabbit hole. Join us at the Fairmont Kea Lani and support the students of the University of Hawai‘i-Maui College’s Culinary Arts Program. Indulge in our lively reception, multicourse dinner, and fine wines poured by Chambers & Chambers Wine Merchants. The reception will feature tasty pūpū by UH Maui College’s Culinary Arts Program, beer & cocktails, a photo booth, and other interactive entertainment.

Please join us in honoring C. Pardee Erdman, ʻAipono Icon; Andaz Maui for Excellence in Sustainability (award sponsored by Pacific Biodiesel); and Jennifer Nguyen of A Saigon Cafe, Friend of Agriculture (award sponsored by Maui County Farm Bureau).
