Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so if you haven’t started planning already, now is the time! Luckily, PAI Honolulu has a number of specials going on right now whether you’re looking to have a date night at home or a romantic evening out. Hosts Kanoe Gibson and Kainoa Carlson are in the HI Now kitchen with Chef Kevin Lee for a closer look at the restaurant’s menu.
Chef Lee has created a special Valentine’s Weekend Couples’ Culinary Kit for those looking to dine at home without all the prep work. The chilled kit includes a four-course meal, including Citrus-Cured Salmon Mousse with Yuzu Ikura and Herbed Sourdough Focaccia; Farmer’s Salad with Ginger Wasabi Vinaigrette; Crab and Lobster Risotto with Whole Poached Lobster Tails, Preserved Lemon, Herbs and Crème Fraiche; and Dark Fudge Brownie with Salted Caramel and Dried Cherry Compote.
Orders placed by January 31 will also receive complimentary red velvet cookies! The kit serves two people for $120, with optional Champagne ($35, half-bottle; $65, bottle), wine pairing ($40, Chablis; $35, Rosé) or Ice Cubed Hawaii collaboration cocktail kit ($45).

Guests who prefer a dine-in experience can enjoy a Chinese New Year-inspired prix fixe Valentine’s Day dinner throughout the weekend. In a nod to his heritage, Chef Lee has crafted a four-course menu featuring an appetizer choice of Crab and Avocado Salad or Candy Cane Beet Salad; pasta course of Shiitake and Cremini Lasagna or Lobster “Congee” ($12 supplemental charge); entrée choice of Seared Scallops with Black Vinegar Reduction or Five-Spice Pork Belly or Maitake Confit (vegetarian option); and dessert choice of Molten Dark Chocolate Brownie with Peanut Bourbon Gelato or Mango Panna Cotta with Black Sesame Brittle and Pickled Mango Gelato.
The special menu will be served Friday, February 12, through Sunday, February 14, priced at $85 per person, with optional beverage pairing for an additional cost of $45 per person.
PAI Honolulu is currently open Wednesday through Sunday, 4 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. for dine-in, take-out, curbside pickup and island-wide delivery. In addition to the well-spaced indoor dining room, the restaurant offers covered-patio seating for a peaceful, downtown outdoor-dining experience.
