We officially celebrated James’ birthday at that most Maui of Maui restaurants: Mama’s Fish House.
We gathered with a few of our very favorite people for a meal fit for a king. And what did we wear? Purple velvet crowns. Naturally!
(Those smiley faces on the right of the picture, by the way, belong to Christine and Steve Turnbull, sculptors who own a gallery. If you’ve never been, it’s a must-stop! They have a fantastic website here.)
If you haven’t been to Mama’s since they opened up their new dining wing, you must check it out. It’s like eating inside a giant sculpture – absolutely beautiful. While the ono crudo appetizer went down like a spicy, creamy butter, the wok-fried moi (fish of royalty) was out of this world. And while the adults were all too stuffed for dessert, the boy prince got a black pearl for dessert.
Everyone should be treated like a king for the day … and Mama’s is definitely the place to do it. Thanks, James, for giving me an excuse to give you one more party…
