Fork & Salad Marks a Memorable First Year
Fork & Salad in Kīhei invites the community to celebrate its one-year birthday on Wednesday, July 19. The farm-to-table eatery is offering customers 30% off all day, between 10:30 a.m. and 9 p.m.
“We did our best to deliver on our mission: make farm-to-table cuisine accessible to more people; provide customers with the freshest, healthiest food possible; and support our local farmers and producers,” explains chef/co-owner Travis Morrin.
Morrin says over the last year, Fork & Salad has added employees, combo deals and a beer/wine list. The restaurant also became known for a mini-farmers’ market during 4th Friday town parties in Kīhei, and the “Know Your Farmers” video series, which gives people an up-close look at where their food comes from. Fork & Salad touts more than 25 local farmers and suppliers for its ingredients.
Fork & Salad gained attention for expanding awareness in light of concerns about Rat Lungworm Disease earlier this year, when it posted videos outlining its produce-washing techniques and supplier farm Waipoli Hydroponic Greens’ safety methods.
The team also launched a catering operation, and along with its sister restaurant Three’s, catered events that have involved Maui County, Grow Some Good, Maui Arts & Cultural Center, Oprah Winfrey and more.
Fork & Salad was recognized for its commitment to Maui farmers with a special “Friend of Agriculture” ‘Aipono award, and was recently named “Best New Restaurant” by MauiTime.
