of Hawaii’s most notable Italian restaurants unveils over 20 new dishes
Longhi’s Ala Moana turns twelve this year, and to celebrate, the restaurant recently launched refreshed breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus, replete with new dishes. The Italian eatery—known for its family recipes steeped in tradition—has over 20 new plates, some of which were specials that customers requested to be offered regularly, while others are completely brand new to appeal to a wider dining audience.
The lunch and dinner menus have been enhanced with the addition of the Grilled Maui Romaine Salad ($9) with maple-cured bacon, gorgonzola, and a balsamic reduction; Fresh Grilled Wild Salmon and Asparagus ($34) with a Maui basil goat cheese pesto; Lobster Risotto ($24 for lunch, $30 for dinner); Shrimp Risotto ($24 for lunch, $30 for dinner); as well as a few sides, including the Sicilian Cauliflower ($8) rolled in breadcrumbs, Italian seasonings, and parmesan before being bathed in butter, browned garlic, capers, hot chili peppers, and Italian parsley; Mushroom Risotto ($8); and garlic butter-sautéed Button Mushrooms ($9).
Exclusive to the lunch menu are two new sandwiches—the Grilled Organic Chicken and Avocado Sandwich ($15) with caramelized onions, arugula, cilantro, and local vine-ripened tomatoes, and the Open Faced Prime Bleu Cheese Burger ($17.50) with seven ounces of ground prime beef over garlic toast and topped with gorgonzola, sautéed mushrooms, and a demi-glace.
