La Vie Restaurant to debut at the Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach, Aug. 1

G.Lion Group Hawaii, owner of the iconic Hy’s Steak House, in a newly developed partnership with The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach, announces the highly anticipated summer 2019 debut of La Vie as the signature modern French restaurant of a reinvigorated dining experience at the resort.

On August 1, La Vie, will be the first of a trio of concepts that will make the resort a culinary destination in Waikiki that will also include Quiora, an all-day rustic Italian trattoria, and The Lounge, a relaxed and inviting Mediterranean-inspired cocktail bar and lounge with poolside service. 

La Vie, which means “the life” in French, welcomes visitors and kamaaina to the eighth floor of the resort’s ‘Ewa Tower for a culinary discovery led by restaurant general manager, Dusty Grable. 

“We are humbled for this opportunity and eager to serve our guests and share our hospitality through the innovative food and beverage creations that our team has crafted at La Vie,” said Grable. “Our passion is to provide genuine care through thoughtful, knowledgeable, attentive, and enthusiastic service and take our guests on a culinary journey”. 

Chef Shaymus Alwin helms the kitchen and presents a new approach to modern French cuisine. “Guests may select any combination of three, four, or five dishes from our thoughtfully crafted, cheeky, modern French menu to create their own unique coursed menu”, said Alwin. “Our goal with La Vie is to curate a variety of unexpected culinary discoveries, all in a pleasantly inviting atmosphere so that guests will desire to return multiple times during their stay at the resort”.

A world class wine list consulted by Advanced Sommelier Taro Kurobe, G.Lion Group Hawaii’s Wine Director, will emphasize French wine pairings by the glass and the finest bottles from new and old-world vineyards. Cocktails will incorporate French spirits, storytelling and a bit of history for delightful experiences both tableside or in The Lounge offering an extensive range of hand-crafted spirits, select beers, and classic cocktails. 

Non-alcoholic pairing options with the tasting menu contribute to La Vie’s inclusive approach to service and add that extra level of consideration discerning guests come to expect. 

La Vie will seat 50 guests for dinner from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and will also serve breakfast from 6:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., daily. The Lounge, located adjacent to the restaurant, will seat 24 guests all day, from 6:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and serve the pool deck and cabanas situated below. 

A sister restaurant, La Vie 1923, opened earlier this year in February in Osaka, Japan, headed by Executive Chef Yuji Konishi mirroring the concept of approachable modern French cuisine crafting culinary journeys expressing the seasons in Japan.

Quiora, scheduled to open later this Fall embodies its Italian name that translates to “here, now.” As the more casual dining option in the Diamond Head Tower, it will serve lunch, dinner and everything in between with rustic flair from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., daily.
