- Arancino at the Kahala celebrates its one year anniversary. The good news for us? Dinner is now available a la carte. Previously, only tasting menus starting at $85 were offered. Now, you can order Arancino's rich uni pasta ($32), seafood and black squid ink chitarra ($29) and pizzas on their own. Arancino at the Kahala also offers new dishes such as a tagliatelle with abalone and wood mushroom ($32), and, for its anniversary, you can upgrade the lavender-infused beef dish with A5 Miyazaki Wagyu beef (the highest grade of Wagyu).

- Bernini's summer menu features new seasonal dishes including a pancetta and corn risotto topped with shaved fresh Italian summer truffles ($45) and a swordfish involtini ($38)—the fish rolled around a scallop mousse. For dessert: a coffee gelee and caramel bavarois with coconut granita ($10) and a pineapple tart with a yogurt sauce ($8).
