Known to millions as the star of Iron Chef and Iron Chef America, Chef Masaharu Morimoto has earned critical and popular acclaim for his seamless integration of Western and Japanese ingredients. He has become one of the foremost chefs of today by effectively creating a signature cuisine that has gained worldwide appeal.
Morimoto has restaurants around the globe with restaurants in Philadelphia, New York, Mumbai and New Delhi and Boca Raton, Florida. Chef Morimoto opened his first West Coast restaurant, Morimoto Napa, in downtown Napa’s new Riverfront development which was followed by the debut of Morimoto Waikiki in Modern Honolulu, the new luxury lifestyle hotel set alongside Honolulu’s famed Waikiki Beach. 2011 found Morimoto opening Morimoto Mexico City in the Camino Real Polanco in Mexico’s capital.
In a news letter sent from Iron Chef Morimoto’s webpage, he announced that “Morimoto Maui will be opening at the Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort & Spa in the summer of 2013.”
Chef Morimoto stated, “At Morimoto Maui, the menu will focus on Hawaii’s freshest, local ingredients executed with traditional Japanese techniques. We are working with the Rockwell Group on the design of the restaurant, which will feature a 57-seat interior dining area, 56-seat outdoor terrace, and 23-seat terrace bar. There will also be an 8-seat sushi bar serving sushi and sashimi. I am excited that you will be able to see the beach and ocean from every seat in the house!”
At age 24, Morimoto opened his first restaurant and after a successful five-year tenure, the young chef sold it and traveled to the U.S. to further expand his repertoire. In 1993, Morimoto was recruited by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa to open the first Nobu restaurant as executive chef in 1994.
He has received many awards along the way including, a James Beard Foundation Award for “Outstanding Restaurant Design” and additional accolades of “2006 Hot List” restaurant by Conde Nast Traveler, “New York’s Top 50” restaurants by Travel + Leisure, “Top Newcomer” by Zagat Survey and one of New York Magazines “Best New Restaurants”.
We are delighted Chef Morimoto has decided to open another of his famous Morimoto restaurants on Maui and are looking forward to welcoming him to the Island of Maui. And of course, we look forward to enjoying his delicious cuisine!
