WSW The Steakhouse offers a refreshing approach to the dining experience for those in the Hilo area that fills a void in the local food and beverage world – something exciting and classy, while also serving as an everyday destination for locals and visitors alike.
“Bringing a new and exciting concept to Hilo is always fun!” says WSW The Steakhouse Food and Beverage Director Gregory Arianoff. “The steakhouse concept fits the location perfectly with majestic views of Hilo Bay and Maunakea. WSW, which stands for Whisky Steak Wine, describes the feel we were looking for: a great place for everyone to enjoy the finer things in life.”
The restaurant’s grand opening to the public is slated for January 30, 2021. Situated in the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel along the iconic Banyan Drive fronting Hilo Bay, WSW The Steakhouse will be open nightly from 5-9 p.m.
The 5,600 square-foot dining destination is the only true steakhouse in Hilo. It will feature first-class steaks, an array of seafood, the best wine list in East Hawaii island, and a table-side Whisky Cart full of alluring spirits.
The robust menu will offer a wide selection of locally sourced produce and appetizers, Prime Grade or Premium Certified Black Angus steaks and chops, seafood, salads, sides, and desserts. WSW The Steakhouse will also feature an impressive list of exclusive fine wines and whiskies, with wines not found elsewhere in the state and whiskies from around the world. A floor-to-ceiling, walk-around glass display will showcase the restaurant’s world-class wines and spirits collection.
As a steakhouse, the restaurant team takes pride in serving the highest quality beef. One of WSW The Steakhouse’s signature steaks will be a massive 32-ounce bone-in, slow-roasted Prime Rib of beef served with a mouthwatering pan drip au jus.
Another amazing shareable dish for guests to look forward to is Seafood Skillet, which will include a full pound of steamed snow crab clusters, a pound of Louisiana-style crayfish, a pound of clams, and a pound of Norway Lobster bathed in a delicious white wine broth. WSW The Steakhouse will also be introducing the tableside Whisky Cart, where guests will have the opportunity to order rare and fine whiskies from all over the world, prepared for them.
In addition to the stellar menu, diners can keep an eye out for upcoming daily and weekly specials. For instance, Tuesday will soon be known as “Tomahawk Tuesday,” as that daily special will feature a hearty 32-ounce Wagyu-grade, Tomahawk-style Rib Eye steak.
“Our goal is to provide steakhouse level service, but in a fun and more local atmosphere,” Arianoff says. “We want our guests to make WSW The Steakhouse an everyday destination, not just a place to celebrate special occasions. We are confident that with our friendly pricing, outstanding service, attention to detail, and creating close ties with the local farming community – where we source our goods – we can attain that goal.”
