Forkable Fiafia Menu


Dinner jacket and boufant encouraged, but not required. Photo: Vintage Vegas c/o BTSIC

The menu for our Polynesian Fiafia fest fuses traditional Oceanic recipes with contemporary style, combining the best ingredients, flavors to bring you a paradise of authentic dishes recreated with a splash of bygone glamor for the present pallet. The word "fiafia", used throughout the Pacific Islands, can mean celebration, get-together, and happy. Our fiafia will combine all of these, with a discerning splash of kitsch which leaves the tacky tiki at the door.

Sweet pickled makok that's ambitious!

The word is spelled "consommé," but ceviche with Earl Grey-infused champagne vinegar sounds absolutely amazing.

Thanks Richard, for always prowling for those spelling errors, but since you always follow it up with a compliment, I can't help but love it!

I'm a firm believer in coupling criticism with positive reinforcement. Though it really does sound incredible.

I wish I could come. Can you mail me an appetizer?

i've already signed up and noted i don't eat red meat...now see that two of the four courses are meat....will you have alternatives? or can I cancel and get refund?
