Hollywood hot on Maui

February 27, 2014 - Carla Tracy

The minute he walked in the joint . . . they could tell he was a man of distinction . . . a real BIG spender.

Hey, that was actor Charlie Sheen spotted dining like he was two and a half men at Mala Wailea last week with his new fiance, recently retired adult-movie star Brett Rossi. According to onlookers in the room, he was a big tipper, too, generously giving more than three and a half times the amount of their tab.

When I was typing this celeb sighting, I got a call from the Food Network’s highly-rated “Restaurant Impossible.” The call was fairly hot on the heels of the “Top Chef” finale that filmed here, so you know Maui remains sought after with the Hollywood set.

“We’re looking for a restaurant that could use some help from our world-class team for our upcoming episode of ‘Paradise Impossible,’ ” says scouting and casting’s Mathew Klickstein.

“It’s one of the most popular series on Food Network and we’ll be airing our 100th episode very soon. Our celebrity chef, Robert Irvine — along with his team from HGTV — work to better restaurants that may need some assistance with everything from menu choices to organization to decor, staff training, marketing and more.”

Maui restaurateurs in need of help, who want the national exposure and an extremely high success rate after, should note their business must be located within a mile of the beach for consideration.

If this sounds like it’s of interest, you may contact klickstein via email at
