Michel’s at the Colony Surf, the Waikiki French Restaurant Beloved the World Over, Is Set to Re-Open on Tuesday, December 1, 2020

—Offering a variety of special menu selections to make your special Hawaiian holiday season dreams come true—

KYOTO, Japan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--WATABE WEDDING Corporation (TOKYO: 4696), working to expand their wedding-related business throughout the world, will re-open “Michel’s at the Colony Surf,” the French restaurant WATABE WEDDING operates in Waikiki on Hawaii’s Oahu Island, on Tuesday, December 1, 2020.

The concept behind the renovations that led to this re-opening was “a dining experience to captivate the hearts of visitors from all over the world.” To realize that, WATABE WEDDING created a new space that will delight guests for the next fifty years to experience an even greater level of extraordinary refinement as they dine. The interiors have been completely redone with carpets in shades of royal blue together with sofas and chairs upholstered in a soothing gold color.

The restaurant has offered a take-out menu during the stay-at-home orders, and special protocols were put in place for operations after that order is lifted. After the restaurant re-opens, our new “A Taste of Michel’s” menu selection will include the lobster bisque for which we have been famous for more than fifty years, as well as our regular à la carte menu selections and a special “First Sunday Brunch” selection only available on the first Sunday of each month. We are also preparing special selections of our “Christmas Prix Fixe Menu” and our “New Year’s Eve Menu” that will indulge our guests in luxury. Enjoy all that a special Hawaiian holiday season has to offer at the newly reborn restaurant.
