The luxurious Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, will soon add another high-end restaurant to its culinary offerings.
Renowned chef Alan Wong will open a new restaurant — Alan Wong’s Amasia — this spring at the resort, occupying the space vacated by Kincha.
This restaurant will blend global flavors — from Asia to Peru — in the small-plate format trending around the country.
“Food brings people together, at the kitchen table or in the plantation fields in many destinations. I want to create an elevated local interpretation of this cultural exchange,” Wong says. “Guests will experience a sense of place, as they see, hear, smell and feel the melding of exotic flavors from around the world, featuring the best of Maui’s bounty from the land and sea.”
Amasia will feature a sushi bar, a robata for grilled dishes, and a drink menu that boasts private labels and creative cocktails inspired by the restaurant’s transcontinental menu.
The former Kincha restaurant is currently undergoing a $2 million dollar renovation to make way for Amasia. It will be the third restaurant for the James Beard Award-winning chef in the Islands.
