“In the Kitchen with Chef Mavro – Metromix was invited to take an inside look at how Chef Mavro and his team prepare for a dinner service. We also test tasted Mavro’s four-course Mothers’ Day menu, which was, in a word: extraordinary. Not that it came as any surprise to us. Chef George Mavrothassilitis, affectionately known as Chef Mavro, is the best chef in the state, hands down. He is, in my opinion, the unparalleled master of Hawaiian regional cuisine.”

Fine Dining at Chef Mavro in Honolulu

April 30, 2009

Chef Mavo is Honolulu’s top-rated fine dining restaurant famous for innovative flavor combinations and food & wine pairings. AAA Five Diamond rated. George Mavrothalassitis, chef/proprietor, holds the prestigious James Beard Award, the “Oscars” of the culinary arts in America. He is a founding member of Hawaii Regional Cuisine.

Sommelier Todd Ashline, a Honolulu Advertiser wine columnist, contributes to the exceptional level of service and the wine program.

Kevin Chong, chef de cuisine, has a natural synergy with Mavro and is instrumental in the seasonal evolution of the restaurant. Farm to table is key as the restaurant consistently partners with local farmers to offer menus dedicated to regional products from baby greens and tomatoes to vanilla and lavender.

“Sometimes buying local means the cost is higher and sometimes it takes more time but the reward is huge. Local farmers succeed and my guests enjoy fresh, regional ingredients and a dining experience they could have only in Hawaii.”

The restaurant’s website http://www.chefmavro.com includes a video of Chef Mavro preparing a signature recipe while standing in the waves of Waikiki! Open for dinner nightly. Reservations 6-9:30 p.m., closed Sundays and Mondays.
