Teaming up with Maui’s Chef Sheldon Simeon and O‘ahu’s Chef Mark Noguchi, Merriman’s Restaurants is announcing two special dinners to benefit the Hawaiian Islands Land Trust.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to help protect Hawai‘i,” said Owner-Chef Peter Merriman, who has served on the board of the Hawaiian Islands Land Trust since 2009. “Both events will feature collaborative farm-to-table menus and provide the opportunity for these great chefs to lend their hand in conservation.”

The first event on Dec. 9 will take place at Merriman’s Waimea on Hawai‘i Island with guest Chef Mark “Gooch” Noguchi of Pili Group and Merriman’s Chef Vince McCarthy. Tickets are $90 per person.

The second event will be held on Dec. 18 at Merriman’s Fish House on Kaua‘i and will feature Tin Roof Owner Simeon and Merriman’s Chef Mark Arriola. The Kaua‘i Island Pāʻina costs $120 per person.
