"Everybody has a story about CanoeHouse,” says executive chef Matt Raso. “I want to preserve the memories and experiences people have, to hold true to the history of this iconic restaurant.” The seasoned chef brings years of experience to Mauna Lani, training under world-renowned chef Nobu Matsuhisa and overseeing Nobu restaurants famed outposts in Dallas, Honolulu, and Miami.
