Gerard's is famous for its fresh catch such as ono or mahimahi along with fresh snapper. He just calls fishermen and asks them to bring in more fresh catch when he runs out and they gladly oblige.
His fresh Markea prawns on pasta with truffle butter is drizzled with hazelnut oil, and topped with creme fraiche and Reggiano parmesan cheese. Duck confit and rack of lamb are also top sellers.
He's been featuring some incredible Berkshire pork from Peahi on Maui's North Shore in a variety of preparations such as fromage de tete.
"I met this young couple, Lehua and David Fitch from Malama Farms in Peahi, and I bought the whole pig from them," said Gerard. "So we're featuring charcuterie items such as this rillettes de pork, which is shredded pork spread served with cornichons and toast."
