NEW YORK FOLLOWED BY MOSCOW FOLLOWED BY DUBAI. THEN I SHOULD CALM DOWN FOR THE RITZ OPENING
Beautiful weather, sun, sea and sand. A lot of distractions whilst creating the new Aperitif menu for L'Aperitif Bar. The new collection of cocktails are like "Haute Couture" . These are cocktails created for Ladies. Lighter, Simple, Full of taste and at the same time much less alcohol than in my usual style of cocktails.
The launch was with KHON TV Hawaii and KITV Hawaii too. Henry, the Head bartender, Herman and the beautiful Joanna were all fabulous.
What a brilliant Hotel, the swimming pool is to die for and the personnel in genral are so very keen to help you in any situation.
I also had a lovely dinner at "chez Michel", a restaurant right by the sea. The food was delicious and I was accompanied by Yukie, a fun and knowledgable bartender from '53 by the Sea Restaurant'.
The restaurant La Mer has just obtained 99% from the ZAGAT critique and the question is'what went wrong? the place is perfect.
Soon to come more photos of the Chef Alexandre Tranchet, looking as happy as ever!!
