Complete makeover of the former Prince Court includes new bar and menu
HONOLULU, HI – Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki and Golf Club is excited to announce the opening of its new restaurant, 100 Sails, in late November. The new restaurant is part of the hotel’s comprehensive $55.4 million transformation, which is slated for completion in spring 2017.
Operating in the space of the former Prince Court, 100 Sails, reflective of its name, will continue to offer guests its signature views of Ala Wai Harbor and the ocean beyond, as well as breathtaking first row seats to Hawaii’s most spectacular sunsets. A new active bar offering fresh smoothies and coffee in the morning, and craft cocktails in the evening will serve as the centerpiece of the restaurant. While the beloved buffets of Prince Court will remain, a renewed focus on island fresh cuisine promises to elevate the entire dining experience.
Leading the restaurant’s culinary team is Chef de Cuisine, Joseph Almoguera, who has been a member of the Prince Resorts family since 2013. Discovering his passion for cooking at an early age, Almoguera’s culinary career includes positions at John Taiyo’s Cuisine Corporation, Kuakini Health System, Hilton Waikoloa Village and The Fairmont Orchid. Almoguera has also held the position of executive sous chef at Waikoloa Beach Marriott for six years.
“We’re proud to launch 100 Sails as a reflection of our vision for Hawaii Prince moving forward,” said Chuck Abbott, general manager. “With the restaurant’s modern design, incorporating our hotel’s sense of place, and the inventive culinary creations of Chef Joe and his team, we look forward to welcoming guests to a new dining experience.”
Menu selections will vary from small bites including Poke Tempura, Uni Carbonara and Oxtail Dumplings, to an expansive buffet featuring dishes such as Crispy Garlic Soy Chicken with Spicy Banana Ketchup, Hoisin Barbecue Ribs with Shichimi Fried Onions and signature steamed crab legs and prime rib. The hotel’s famous bread pudding remains a staple dessert with exciting additions including Prince Shave Ice and Chocolate Macadamia Nut Pie.
100 Sails will be open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon pupus and dinner as well as brunch on Sundays.
100 Sails will seat 300 in the main dining room, and offer 16 seats in its private dining room. For more casual dining, seating will be available at the restaurant’s bar and lounge area. For more information, please visit princeresortshawaii.com/
