Grondin : French-Latin Kitchen
Grondin: French-Latin Kitchen is a quaint restaurant operating in Honolulu’s Chinatown Historic District serving cuisine inspired by rustic French and Latin American dishes. All ingredients are carefully sourced and local when possible. Favorites amongst the regulars and Press include: the house Charcuterie, Kauai Prawn & Market Fish Ceviches, Bone Marrow, the Chuleta, and the Cassoulet, just to name a few. To pair with such a unique blend of cuisines, Grondin has put together a list of handpicked and reasonably priced wine, craft beers, and classically made cocktails using fresh ingredients. Grondin is known for its casual bistro atmosphere and excellent service.
Approaching the two-year anniversary, Grondin has already received accolades from the Hale ‘Aina Awards for Best New Restaurant 2015, Best Business Lunch 2016, and Rave Review ‘Ilima Awards for 2015 & 2016. Grondin has also received great ratings through social media such as Yelp, Facebook, and Trip Advisor.
The restaurant seats 35 in the dining room, 10 guests at the bar, and an additional 20 seats in the garden—weather permitting. The garden, located in the courtyard of the Medonca building includes a tropical garden and koi pond—a one-of-a-kind venue for a more intimate group. Reservations are recommended but not required. Grondin is available to host special events, private parties, and catering menus.
The menu is broken up into three different services throughout the week: Lunch, Brunch, and Dinner. Specialty Cocktails and select beverages are discounted for Happy Hour Monday through Friday, 5 to 6 at the bar. Along with the normal menu, Chef Andrew offers several daily specials and an “Ohana Menu” option for larger parties.
Taking a Chinatown Tour? Stop in for the Prix-Fixe Lunch Menu for $22 that offers a 3-course lunch consisting of regular size portions of the Petits & Fuerte dishes, plus homemade ice cream or sorbet.
