Lahaina Grill's popular demi menu has returned for those who want to dine at the bar from 6 p.m. to closing Sundays to Thursdays.
In a nutshell, diners get half-entree portions for a reduced price at Lahaina town's hot spot. They are perfect-sized portions for sharing with a friend and the bartenders will help you find the right wine or the perfect cocktail.
The demi menu simply gives diners another option to mix and match and try additional items from the award-winning menu.

"Lahaina Grill's demi menu was originally developed to appeal to a wider customer base, to create a more approachable and casual experience at the bar," shares Jurg Munch, chef-owner. "The buzz at our bar is already contagious, but this menu just helps to make a night on the town a bit more fun and affordable."
From the sea comes wild salmon fillet, baked with a pommery mustard and caramelized Maui onion crust with chardonnay-horseradish beurre blanc. From the land comes Kona-coffee-roasted rack of lamb in light coffee-cabernet demi-glace with herb-infused mashed potatoes. Demi desserts include triple-berry pie. All are New American cuisine dishes that use techniques and flavors from around the world - blended with fresh local ingredients from Maui dairies, farms and the ocean.
