Monkeypod Kitchen by Merriman has announced its plans for a second location at Ko Olina in the Summer of 2012. The new location at the world class Ko Olina Resort
will provide an exciting new family-friendly dining experience for visitors and guests of the resort. "We are so excited to finally open a restaurant on Oahu and think the Ko Olina community will be the perfect fit for Monkeypod Kitchen," says Peter Merriman.
Handcrafted Restaurants LLC opened its first Monkeypod Kitchen
on Maui at the Wailea Resort this past February and has received a tremendous response. The locally sourced menu uses socially conscious ingredients, and celebrates the "Art of Craft". The larger 10,000 sq. ft. Oahu location will feature a unique multi-level dining and bar experience with an exhibition kitchen, signature bar, and a stage for live music. Handcrafted Restaurants LLC is a partnership between Chef Peter Merriman and Restaurateur Bill Terry, dedicated to operating world class restaurants in premiere cities and resorts. Bill Terry is the former Vice President of Operations for T S Restaurants (Duke's).
"Bill Terry and Peter Merriman have a fantastic concept that compliments Ko Olina Station and the Ko Olina community. Bill recognizes Ko Olina as one of Hawaii's most important resort markets and anticipates substantial sales volume," says Cory Beall of Beall Corp. Ko Olina Station
is perfectly positioned to capitalize on the area's recent growth. Located across from the Aulani Disney Resort & Spa, it offers commercial, retail and office space in close proximity to high density luxury hotel units, condominiums and residential properties.
