Pacific Business News is excited to announce chef and restaurateur Peter Merriman as this year’s Career Achievement honoree for the annual Business Leadership Hawaii awards. “I’m glad it’s the career [award] and not the lifetime because I thought hey, how old am I?” Merriman said with a laugh. “It’s a real honor,” he added. “It’s an interesting time to be getting honors — it’s a precarious moment for any business in Hawaii, let alone the restaurant business.”
The inside seating of the Hale ‘Aina Award winner may
be closed but the spacious lānai has been revamped for a deliciously
grill-centric pop-up restaurant—which pairs perfectly with a Hawai‘i
summer of social distancing.
