I'm going to Kaanapali Beach in Feb. with much of my extended family (staying at the Westin). I've lived in NYC & London for many years and I'm picky (and knowledgable) about my food and wine.
My first big question is this: do any of the nice restaurants within reasonable driving distance allow corkage? I'm willing to pay up to $50 per bottle, and the wine I bring won't be insulting to anyone...these would be wines that would have been $50+ at retail or are well-aged.
My second question is much simpler: any good restaurant recs? Again, I'm real picky, and I have to deal with other family members whose palates are fairly conservative, which rules out some of the sushi or other creative Hawaiian stuff I might prefer if I were there on my own....I know I'm being lazy and can cobble this together from other posts, but many recommended restaurants dont seem to have current menu's online so I'm a little nervous about making reservations. Think of a place that needs to satisfy someone who thinks that Eleven Madison Park, in NYC, is insufficiently creative, but also needs to please Great Aunt Lilly from Worcester.
