The Hawaii Agricultural Foundation (HAF) is hosting the second Food-A-Go-Go Week from March 23 through April 6. Food-A-Go-Go Week will join a year-long public awareness campaign called Localicious® Hawai’i that puts restaurants and businesses that use local ingredients or produce in their offerings.
And 53 By the Sea participates in Food-A-Go-Go Week. We asked restaurant manager Kalen Yasutake about restaurant participation.
“We joined Food-A-Go-Go Week to support Hawaii’s farming and fishing industries. Proceeds from this campaign will benefit HAF’s K-12 agricultural education programs, which have served more than 18,000 students since 2014.”
Chef Mark Cadiente explained what’s new at 53 By The Sea
“We have just launched a brand new dinner menu starting March 1st. Featuring Chef Mark’s New American Cuisine. Crab agnolotti is one of Chef Mark’s favorite dishes.
53 By the Sea offers a tomato bun for $15 and an Ahi Poke dish for $20 during Food-A-Go-Go week. They will also be offering a pair of adult drinks that support local ingredients.
“We have 2 here, both with Kohana Agricole Rum. The first is our sparkling Koha-Lada, our set on a pina colada finished with sparkling wine. And the second is our Crystal Blue, one of our most popular cocktails here.
