Hawaii residents and U.S. military receive 50% off food on Fridays and Saturdays throughout September

 Kaanapali, Hawaii – The Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas spices things up with the addition of several new menu offerings at the award-winning Pulehu, an Italian Grill. To kick off the new menu, the restaurant is offering 50% off food for kamaaina on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the month of September.

Drawing inspiration from his Italian upbringing, the restaurant’s chef de cuisine Jesse Pita incorporates favorite childhood foods such as handmade pastas and cheeses to the already outstanding cuisine. Joining the restaurant’s classic dishes are items such as pan fried gnocchi Genovese; calabrese pizza with spicy Italian sausage, house-made mozzarella, and Maui Surfing Goat cheese; savory veal ossobucco with creamy polenta; decadent lobster risotto made with roasted tomato, saffron, and parmesan; and hearty, made-from-scratch lasagna served in a cast iron skillet. For dessert, Chef Jesse has crafted a divine (gluten-free) chocolate almond olive oil cake, which is perfectly paired with Maui-made cherry gelato.

“The new menu brings rustic Italian tradition and fresh local ingredients together, enhancing the wood-stone fired pizzas, house-made pastas and exceptional wine that Pulehu is already known for,” said Brandon Maeda, the resort’s director of food and beverage. “We look forward to sharing the new menu with our local community and as a thank-you for your support we’re excited to offer a great kamaaina discount in September.”
