Restaurant Week Hawaii is a seven day celebration of the cuisine scene in Hawaii. From fine dining to fast-food, participating restaurants will feature special menu items, promotions and discounts. Diners can sample Hawaii’s newest restaurants, dine at old favorites and taste a variety of exceptional dishes now being prepared by Hawaii’s chefs using locally grown produce. Restaurant Week is a reminder that Hawaii is a culinary destination with top chefs, farm to table dining, wonderful wine and a lot more to discover and explore.
The goal of Restaurant Week Hawai`i is to realize a vision of an advanced culinary campus—the Culinary Institute of the Pacific at Diamond Head. Graduates of Hawai`i’s first four-year culinary program will go on to serve Hawai`i’s restaurant and hospitality industry and ultimately the greater community.
A portion of the proceeds from Restaurant Week Hawaii will support the Culinary Institute of the Pacific at Diamond Head.

Realizing a vision to build a world-class institute that sets a new standard for culinary education,
Creating a strong and viable workforce for Hawaii’s future,
Blending state-of-the art technology with cuisines from the east and west,
Combining leading edge business models with lessons from those who came before us,
Opening doors and changing lives of students who dream,
This is the Culinary Institute of the Pacific at Diamond Head.
