Now open on the glorious shores of Kaanapali Beach, Duke’s Beach House Maui is the latest exciting extension of the TS Brand, which also operates Kimo’s, Leilani’s, and Hula Grill on Maui.

This marks the groups’ fifth restaurant named for Duke Kahanamoku, Hawaii’s most famous native son. The stellar athlete and international ambassador of Aloha won scores of medals and accolades world-wide in surfing and swimming. He participated in a record number of Olympic games during his lifespan. He also pretty much single-handedly promoted the sport of surfing to the United States coasts, Australia and New Zealand. Duke was named surfer of the century by Surfer Magazine. He was inducted posthumously into the Olympic Hall of Fame in 1984. If he were here today we think he’d be very happy hanging out at Duke’s Beach House.

As Bill Terry, TS Restaurant’s Vice President Hawaii Operations put it, “In the tradition of T S Restaurants, guests at Duke’s Beach House will love the restaurant as much for its period-inspired interiors and outdoor dining area, as for its service with aloha and delicious food. Duke Kahanamoku was all about sharing the aloha spirit and our new Maui restaurant will reflect his love for the Hawaiian culture.”

In keeping with the spirit of Aloha, fresh, locally sourced ingredients will be featured throughout the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. WCM recently sampled an array of pupus served in the beautiful, vintage style dining room and were all wowed by Duke’s POKE ROLLS (Hawaii’s favorite pupu!) made, of course, from raw Ahi, Maui onions, seared in rice paper. We also nibbled CRAB AND MACNUT WONTONS served with a gourmet mustard plum sauce, CRISPY COCONUT SHRIMP with yummy lilikoi dipping sauce, as well as delectable CLAYPOT CHICKEN SPRING ROLLS stuffed with goat cheese & bok choy, accented by a ponzu dip. The KOREAN BABY BACK RIBS were the best we’ve had on island. In fact, all the pupus rank right up there with the best on island.

If at first glance the pupu menu seems “same old,” – it’s not. Duke’s executive Chef has infused each dish with memorable and innovative flavors that will keep us coming back again and again. All of the aforementioned items are available at the Ohia bar, along with Kalua Pork Quesadilla’s and Ahi Nachos, with everything priced from $8-$12.50, along with many wines under $10/glass. The bar menu also  feature Mango Ribs, Hulihuli Chicken and Beachside Grilled Fish or Beef Tacos for $13.50. And did we mention it was a beautiful setting and a gorgeous dining room?

”The cuisine is Hawaiian influenced with a focus on fresh, sustainable seafood and premium steaks,” said Shaughn Helliar, General Manager of Duke’s Beach House. “The team at Duke’s Beach House is looking forward to providing the residents and visitors of Maui with the Duke’s dining experience they know and love from our other locations, enhanced by a locally inspired menu.”

We at WCM predict 2010 will be a great year (or at least a great meal) for all who venture through the doors of TS Restaurants’ latest homage to the great Hawaiian known as Duke. Throughout the New Year, let’s keep this quote from Duke in mind:

In Hawaii we greet friends, loved ones or strangers with “Aloha,” which means with love. Aloha is the key word to the universal spirit of real hospitality, which makes Hawaii renowned as the world’s center of understanding and fellowship. Try meeting or leaving people with Aloha. You’ll be surprised by their reaction. I believe it, and it is my creed.

Aloha to you.
