The award-winning Colony restaurant at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa, located right on the famous shorefront of Waikiki, is inviting guests to express their culinary creativity over dinner. Diners will choose their own spices to flavor their steaks, seafood, or mixed grill dishes – think Hawaiin Red ‘Alaea (a mineral-enriched sea salt), Espresso, and Lemon Pepper. Noting the popularity of semi-DIY culinary consumption (customizable mix-in ice cream at Cold Stone and hibachi-style, cooked-in-your-face food at Benihana), The Colony’s personalized produce is sure to be a hit. At the casual yet elegant restaurant (perfect for a romantic night out), the beautifully prepared dishes are topped off with creative sides like Maui Onions (sweet onions) with Molokai herbs and Okinawan potato puree (purple sweet-potato puree), earning The Colony’s new menu rave reviews, and understandably so – the food sounds scrumptious (and I’m vegetarian).
