'ULU Ocean Grill & Sushi Lounge Restaurant Review

: 'ULU Ocean Grill & Sushi Lounge at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai takes its name from the Hawaiian word for breadfruit, which was a staple food of the Polynesian people. Perched right on the beach, the restaurant affords fantastic ocean views. The segmented space comprises a series of rooms as well as raised patios for taking full advantage of Hawaii's beautiful climate. The kitchen has a rich bounty of ingredients to draw from as 'ULU supports more than 160 local farmers and fishermen. A morning at the resort can be made even more memorable with a cup of Kona coffee and the Paniolo Skillet with teriyaki glazed local beef, peppers, potatoes, Maui onions and two poached eggs. At dinner, ahi poke is made tableside with ogo, Maui onions, white shoyu and sesame oil. Crispy local octopus "takoyaki style" and roasted beets with goat cheese are other notable starters. Continue with lobster pad thai or a seafood special like shutome with bok choy and sugar snap peas. The Hawaii Roll is an offering from the sushi section of the menu. Complement your selections with the 'ULU Sake Experience, which includes a sampler of two sak├ęs. Desserts range from souffl├ęs (chocolate or the flavor of the evening) to tempura cheesecake. The wine list is concise and studied, and there are also island-inspired cocktails. On Saturday evenings, 'ULU presents a farm-to-table dinner ($95) that starts with a reception on the beach and continues with a three-course meal at the restaurant.
