Foodies come from all over the world to savor the trend-setting flavor combinations and wine pairings created each season by Chef George Mavrothalassitis and his young culinary team. Mavro is a founding member of Hawaii Regional Cuisine (HRC) and is one of the only three Hawaii based chefs to earn the prestigious James Beard award.
Born in the sunny Mediterranean city of Marseilles in Provence, Mavro has set deep roots in Hawaii over the last 26 years, embracing the people and taking inspiration from their diverse culinary traditions. Mavro continues to provide frequent advanced workshops for Hawaii culinary students and serves on the executive board of the non-profit, Hawaii Culinary Education Foundation. He continues to offer a program he created named, Restaurant Reality. Twice a year he provides a free two-day intensive program for Hawaii culinary students that include hands-on training, farm tours, and a Grand Tasting dining experience. His charitable activities are focused on the arts in Hawaii with a special dedication to the Hawaii Public Radio.
Chef Mavro is the only independently owned restaurant in Hawaii with the American Automobile Association (AAA) Five Diamond award (2008-2014), and the highest food rating in Hawaii, Three Toques (18/20) and Gayot’s “Top 40 Restaurants in the U.S.”. Wine Spectator recognized Chef Mavro as one of the eleven “most important French chefs working in America”, along with Alain Ducasse, Pierre Gagnaire, Daniel Boulud, and others.
