Michel's Welcomes Melka
"Where all five senses are romanced... soothing jazz, lapping waves, first class service, great wines and cuisine by Chef Hardy". Since 1962, Michel's remains one of Hawaii's finest restaurants celebrating the rebirth of classical French cuisine. Phillip Shaw and his tuxedo-clad team of professionals manage to transport diners lucky enough to experience this unique atmosphere and culinary experience, to a world one imagines when envisioning haute cuisine meets contemporary Hawaii, on the beach at Waikiki. Last night this happened in a very big way. Michel's At the Colony Surf hosted one of the world's most respected winemakers, Phillipe Melka, and his partner - wife, Cheri, courtesy of HASR Wine Company. And who is HASR? "Highly Allocated Spoiled Rotten" located downtown Chinatown in that quaint little courtyard on Pauahi St. where owners Mike and Terry feature select California wines in their uber friendly-unpretentious-but-serious-about-our-wine retail wine shop. It is a joy to see Honolulu businesses coming together to create a "hui" and a very unique metro experience that remains uniquely Hawaiian. Encore.
