I am absolutely not going to this dinner posted below ($75 person, yeah, uh huh), but it looks absolutely delicious to me. A Hawaiian/Creole fusion. Yum, yum. I got this because I am on a jazz performances email listing in Hawaii (I've only been to one) and one of Oahu's most famous trumpeters, DeShannon Higa, is playing with crew at this event. But I looooove the menu.
I think I would go with the...
Sweet potato gumbo
Spicy ahi poke stack (chunks of raw tuna (ahi; coincidentally the same word in Japanese and Hawaiian, actually coincidentally); it's the thing in the picture)
Shrimp, Andouille, and Hawaiian Snapper Etoufee
Hawaiian-style Beignets (these are more commonly called malasadas and are indeed similar to beignets, except they are Portuguese descended; Portugal was the major non-Asian-Pacific people who came to work the plantations, so there's some lingering cultural influence).
Or maybe I'm having Louisiana food withdrawal.
