Three’s Supports UHMC Students at Noble Chef!

Learning by doing can really make a difference, and we’re always happy to give culinary students that direct experience through events like Noble Chef.

It’s a huge annual fundraiser for University of Hawai‘i Maui College (UHMC) and its renown culinary program.  The popular event always touts a fun theme (this year was “White Christmas”), and features a walk-around cocktail reception with light bites and a lavish sit-down dinner.  This year, Three’s was stoked to be one of around a dozen restaurants from around Maui involved.  Three’s co-owner/chef Travis Morrin, who went through the UHMC Culinary Arts program, has maintained strong ties to the school.  He has more in our video above.

Culinary students played a big role in preparing, displaying and serving these Noble Chef menu items, which featured seared scallop over sweet potatoes with coconut corn chowder, candied bacon and shaved Parmesan; along with Tahitian poisson-cru, which is ahi and hamachi lightly marinated in coconut milk and fresh lime, topped with burnt coconut and served with avocado ice cream, Moloka‘i sweet potato and taro chips.

Mahalo to UHMC and the students for a job well done, and we’ll see you next year!!

New, New, New at Three’s Bar & Grill!

 

There are a few things we’re especially stoked on these days.  We thought we’d share the list.

  1.  Our Chefs.  The talented staff in our kitchen and raw bar continue to impress with their culinary creations.  And customers have become such fans of several of the specials, we’ve decided to make them regular offerings!  Which leads us to…
  2. Our Menu.  Those new additions keep our array of menu items fresh and diverse, from three new sushi rolls (including a Surf & Turf roll with New York strip steak!!) and a special ramen to pork chops and prime steak.  Chef Travis shares the details on these in our video above.
  3. Our Brunch.  It’s been such a hit on weekends, we’re EXPANDING it!  Our epic breakfast items, like stuffed french toast, our signature loco moco and six varieties of eggs Benedict, are now available until 2 p.m. EVERY day of the week. Our bar also has some cool options for brunch cocktails if you’re in the mood!!
  4. Our Happy Hour.  Apparently, we’re not the only ones who are stoked on this!  We’re honored to receive Best Happy Hour on Maui (again!!) for 2019 from the readers of Maui Time (oh, and we’re happy to share that our sister restaurant Fork & Salad received Best Lunch on Maui!!).  We have specials on drinks AND food TWO times a day, every day…from 3 to 6 p.m. and 9 to 10 p.m.  The drink deals are among the best you’ll find on Maui, and our award-winning appetizers can be enjoyed in our Surf Lounge at awesome prices.

So join us and experience what’s NEW at Three’s, for breakfast, brunch, happy hour, dinner or anytime in between!!

Pacific Whale Foundation + Three’s Catering: A Proud Partnership!

Pacific Whale Foundation has existed since 1980.  That’s nearly 40 years of being a voice for the whales through research, conservation and community awareness.  That includes giving the public an incredible opportunity to not only learn about our precious marine life, but also experience it up close, through a range of boat trips.  Their eco-adventures are led by certified Marine Naturalists who provide a truly unique, educational and fun adventure at sea.  Those daily trips, from snorkel excursions to whale watches to dinner cruises, also include fresh, quality food, which Three’s Catering is proud to provide on every single trip, morning to night.  Learn more about what you’ll enjoy in our fun video above.

Our boat catering staff is a personable, professional team of talented chefs.  And it’s a pretty sweet gig to have the amazing ocean, complete with breeching whales and playful dolphins, as your backdrop!!  If you have the dedication and experience to join us, we’ve got some important openings, so check out some of our job listings in this video and apply online here!

Behind the scenes, we share in Pacific Whale Foundation’s passion and mission for marine stewardship and sustainability.  We’re committed to using NO plastic wrap for our boat catering orders, and feature 100% reusable containers, plates and cutlery for all boat trips.  We also proudly switched to paper straws at our Fork & Salad locations in Kīhei and Kahului.

So, go for it:  take to the ocean and enjoy the best of Maui’s abundant marine life, and we’ll be sure to provide you with fantastic food along your voyage!!

Kīhei 4th Friday Features Three’s Food Truck!

Three’s food truck is hard to miss cruising around here on Maui, and it rolls up to all sorts of events, from private parties to public events.  The 4th Friday town party in Kīhei is one such event, so we wanted to give you a taste of what it’s like in this video with Chef Travis at our food truck!  Our sister restaurant Fork & Salad also has a great beer garden set up in the outdoor patio during the festivities!

Kīhei’s 4th Friday happens every month (weather permitting) from 6 to 9 p.m. at Azeka Shopping Center Mauka, known as the “heart and soul” of Kīhei. It’s where locals and visitors come to play and enjoy free entertainment, food booths and trucks, art, crafts and local shopping.  There’s also plenty of free parking within a block of the event!

And keep in mind, whether you have a family gathering, work event or wedding, our catering team is here to make it happen.  Check out Three’s Catering to learn more about our food truck and more!

“A Day in the Life” at Three’s Bar & Grill

We open the doors at 8:30 a.m. (or 8 a.m. on weekends) to welcome customers, and the momentum at Three’s doesn’t stop until 10 p.m.!!

There’s breakfast, lunch (and a mix of both until 2 p.m. on weekends!), sushi, happy hour (twice a day), and dinner.  Local musicians jam on our patio every day, and crowds stay entertained in our Surf Lounge with special nighttime events like concerts, comedy and salsa dancing.

So there’s a whole bunch that happens between opening and closing, and we thought it’d be helpful to provide a timeline on a typical day.

8 a.m.-2 p.m. (Weekends)

Lunch:
11:15 a.m.- 4 p.m.

A Sneak Peek at Three’s Catering in Action!

Catering is at the heart of Three’s:  it’s the way our business first began, and how we kept on keepin’ on during the lean, early years.  So we’re proud of how much that part of our company has evolved, with the confidence, experience and talent to handle any event, large or small!

Come along with us in this video as we cater a plated dinner for a 100-person wedding in Olowalu!  It’s one example of many when it comes to the services we offer and events we cover, but should give you a “taste” of our professional background, personalized service and fantastic staff!!

You can also go to our dedicated catering website to learn about menu options, specialties and more!

The Wisdom Behind Our Wines at Three’s Bar & Grill

Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or simply someone who enjoys drinking it, we think you’ll be happy with our selection, which we like to call “Wailea wine at Kīhei prices.”  You can enjoy some of our wines for less, along with other killer drink and food deals, during happy hour from 3 to 6 and 9 to 10 p.m. daily!

Our beverage director Glenn Morrin (who is also Chef Travis’ dad!!) has been with Three’s from the very start.  He put a lot of time and thought into our wine list, and explains some of the highlights in this video with his son!
