Tommy Bahama Restaurant

After Nadia posted about Tommy Bahama last year, I was excited to give it a try!

We were not seated outdoors, on the rooftop, which was fine, because it was a very hot and humid day, and we were happy to sit inside where it was much cooler.

I appreciated that our server provided regular butter along with the Crown Bread in case the cinnamon honey butter was too sweet for our liking (I did think it was too sweet, but my son loved it).

My husband and I were served a delightful lettuce wrap as an amuse bouche.

When our server offered recommendations, he recommended a chicken dish, which was perfect since I usually eat chicken. I was eager to try the dish he recommended - the Kona Beer Brined Chicken, which was served with Roasted Red Chile Sauce, Confit Fingerling Potatoes, Kahuku Street Corn Salad, Jicama & Mari's Garden Radish Slaw.

This dish is one of several that are served locally and not at other Tommy Bahama locations.  I loved the emphasis on the use of local ingredients!

Although a little on the dry side, the chicken was really tasty, and I loved the sauce, which had a little kick to it.  I especially enjoyed the accompanying veggies, particularly the potatoes and corn salad.

My husband had the mahi, which was served with a quinoa succotash, and a Meyer lemon vinaigrette. I had a taste, and it was fantastic!

Kids meals range in price from $9 to $17. One of my kids had the chicken salad, which I was a bit envious of.

We were excited to eat dessert, and because the server a brought a dessert tray to our table, it made the sweet confections even more irresistible. We (or more like I) decided to get the Malted Chocolate Pie.

Chocolate-lovers will be blown away by this pie - a luscious, rich, velvety malt chocolate center is surrounded by a chocolate cookie crust, topped with a mocha mousse and an English toffee crumble. It was the perfect treat for our family to share (smaller sizes are offered for select desserts).

Service was great, and so was the food, and our family had a very pleasant dining experience.
