Mauna Lani Partners with Broad Street Oyster Company to Offer a Taste of Malibu's Seafood Sensation
This latest culinary collaboration will bring one of LA’s most exciting seafood concepts to the Island of Hawai’i for the very first time this festive season
September 2022 – This Festive season, Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts Collection, located on the Island of Hawai’i, adds once again to its legendary culinary status by partnering with Malibu-based Broad Street Oyster Company to create an exclusive experience for guests at its very own Surf Shack. Mauna Lani is renowned for its supreme dining which include its famed signature restaurant, CanoeHouse helmed by Head Chef Matt Raso, and its more casual concepts offered at Surf Shack and HāLani.
This latest partnership with Broad Street Oyster Company will see the Resort’s Executive Chef Kalych collaborate with Founder and Owner of Broad Street Oyster Company, Christopher Tompkins, to illustrate their shared love for locally and sustainably sourced produce. Acclaimed for being the perfect road trip pit stop on the Pacific Coast Highway, Broad Street Oyster Company will bring the ultimate seafood experience to guests soaking up the winter rays between December 18th, 2022 – January 3rd, 2023.
Christopher initially established Broad Street Oyster Company as a catering and pop-up concept inspired by his travels around the globe. However, the seafood centric mobile raw bar quickly established its first restaurant in Malibu during the summer of 2019. Its flawless menu, creative presentation, and friendly atmosphere allowed for exponential growth in the Southern California market with recent expansion into both Santa Barbara and downtown Los Angeles; the surfy seafood destination will now debut in Hawai’i through this seasonal pop-up at Mauna Lani.
“We are delighted to welcome Christopher Tompkins and the Broad Street Oyster Company team to our coastline in partnership with our esteemed chefs as we introduce our newest curated culinary adventure,” shares Sanjiv Hulugalle, Regional Vice President and General Manager of Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts Collection. “One-of-a-kind experiences are at the core of our guest offering and we are certain this collaboration will continue our legacy.”
This highly anticipated culinary moment will be presented across an array of activations throughout the iconic resort. Lunch and dinner will be offered daily at the Surf Shack, allowing guests to enjoy happy hour on the lawn with flavorful oysters only an order away.
Private oceanfront dinners will be offered in Mauna Lani’s beachside backyard, providing guests an intimate barefoot experience. These decadent family-style feasts will satisfy culinary enthusiasts with the menu inspired by Broad Street Oyster Company’s “hits,” which include their World Famous Lobster Roll served with the cherished combination of caviar and uni.
“We truly couldn’t be more excited to partner with Mauna Lani for this dream of an opportunity,” Christopher Tompkins of Broad Street Oyster Company, adds. “Our entire team is looking forward to bringing some of our favorite dishes and pairing them alongside the incredible local offerings of Hawai’i.”
This festive partnership with Broad Street Oyster Company further demonstrates Mauna Lani’s dedication to culinary excellence following the success of its pop-up with Nami Nori in February and with additional collaborations to be announced in 2023.
