Fresh, Local, and Organic
The Modern Honolulu honors its motto that all food must be fresh, local, and organic in all of its dining concepts and menus. The Modern Honolulu prides itself on using locally sourced ingredients from Hawaiian farmers and local fishermen. In a world where foods are processed and ingredients imported, Executive Chef Scott Toner incorporates as many organic ingredients as possible and liberal amounts of locally sourced ingredients at each of the dining outlets, bars and catering services of the resort.
There's the conventional way of doing things, and then there is The Modern's way of doing things; Chef Toner opts for the modern approach of sourcing the freshest ingredients and flavors for his dishes. Using only fresh catches, such as Hawaiian Sea Bass or tuna six days a week, The Modern Honolulu takes advantage of the island's ample resources to create award-winning and celebrated food and beverage menus. Chef Toner's philosophy is simple; the guests that dine at The Modern Honolulu only deserve the best quality ingredients and service.
