If you planned your trip to Maui for your honeymoon, anniversary, or fake engagement that you’re hoping will get you free stuff, Morimoto Maui should be on your fancy-dinner list. This restaurant is located at the Andaz Resort Maui, just off the shoreline of the insanely beautiful Mokapu Beach, which is why you should pay extra attention to the raw bar, and also why almost everyone has their phone out. After taking in the scenery, order the tuna pizza with fresh-caught raw ahi and anchovy aioli for the table because it’s one of the best things here, then focus on the sushi - though there’s also an impressive wagyu beef selection. And if you want a really big night - and have a good deal of money to spend - then the Morimoto Omakase, a $140 per person seven-course chef’s choice tasting menu, is the way to go. There’s also an extensive sake list to sip from while you figure out the best angle for a sunset picture.
