In December 2016 Roy Yamaguchi has opened a new restaurant in Maui named Humble Market Kitchin. The restaurant is in honor of his grandfather who immigrated to Hawaii from Japan. The restaurant is located in the recently remodeled Marriott property, Wailea Beach Resort.
For those of you familiar with Roy's restaurants he used to have a large restaurant here in Kehei located by the Safeway store in the Piilani Village Shopping Center. We loved that restaurant and that was our go-to aloha-night spot. Sadly the economy took a nose-dive in 2008 and Roy's closed that location in 2009.
The restaurant is located to the back the lobby entryway overlooking the ocean. The style of the restaurant is simple, open and contemporary. There is a lounge seating area in the front of the restaurant and booths and tables as you walk through the restaurant. There are also long communal tables as well. The views are magnificent throughout the restaurant.
The Humble Market Kitchin has a smaller menu than the one from the old Roy's in Kehei but every bit as interesting. He does offer a smaller selection of items on his separate lounge menu but the staff says they will serve a full dinner in the lounge as well.
Meal offerings include lots of fresh local-caught seafood, local meats, small plates and entrees as well. He offers a nice Keiki (childrens) menu too.
As you'd expect there is a full bar offering custom cocktails as well as wines and beer.
