Chef Mavro Restaurant Earns
2018 AAA Five Diamond Award
HONOLULU – For the 10th year in a row, Chef Mavro restaurant has earned the Five Diamond Award from The American Automobile Association (AAA). Since 2008 Chef Mavro has been the only independently owned restaurant in Hawaii to earn this top award. AAA notes that for the last 12 months only 68 restaurants earned the AAA Five Diamond Rating in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
“We have evolved to offer an a la carte option as well as our famous Tasting Menu. This year’s award recognizes our whole team for the success of this evolution in that AAA evaluates food, service and ambiance. Our shared concern, I would say “obsession,” is producing the highest quality experience for each guest,” comments George Mavro, chef/owner, Chef Mavro restaurant.
The AAA Five Diamond list is based on anonymous visits by trained AAA restaurant inspectors with only 0.2 percent of the 31,000 restaurants reviewed earning the top rating. Chef Mavro’s menus are reinvented frequently in collaboration with Executive Chef Jeremy Shigekane and Pastry Chef Jose Calpito.
As in the restaurant’s other national awards, Chef Mavro is in the familiar company of Le Bernardin, Per Se, Daniel, The Modern, Eleven Madison Park & Jean Georges in New York; and in California The French Laundry, Saison, Gary Danko & Benu among others.
