The International Market Place’s newest dining concept, The Street, A Michael Mina Social House, will bring 13 food and beverage vendors together in a 6,900-square-foot space that is slated to open next month.
The food court will specialize in casual first-in-Hawaii eateries, four of which are planned to open on May 19, with the rest opening by May 25. A grand opening is planned for June 2.
All chefs hail from previous Mina Group concepts, except Michelle Karr-Ueoka of MW Restaurant who will open a shave ice and mocha dessert stand called Aloha Ice.
“We wanted to utilize the space in the best possible way, and we really let each chef run with their own ideas regarding their menu and concept,” Varley, who is also the culinary director for Mina Group, told Pacific Business News.
The creators of The Street collaborated with Beer Lab Hawaii to develop a custom draught beer, to be served at a beer garden and wine bar within the space.
“We always try to pay homage to the region we are in,” Eric Perlin, director of new restaurants, said, adding that the beer garden will have 12 local drafts.
Additional eateries include The Myna Bird, a tiki bar inspired by Don the Beachcomber, a salad restaurant called Mindful Greens, and Italian eatery Adam’s Nana Lu.
The space can seat about 300 customers and will ultimately hire 200 employees. The venue will offer a Party Pass for $37, which includes seven items from any restaurant, and will also feature DJs on certain evenings.
The Street Honolulu is the first of its kind, and a second location will open in Los Angeles in 2018.
