mala ocean tavern: new(ish) owners cooking up exciting things

The funky pistachio-green exterior of MALA Ocean Tavern belies what awaits when you step inside this iconic oceanfront restaurant that’s been serving up delectable food and gorgeous sunsets for 15 years. Established in 2004 by Mark Ellman, one of the founders of Hawai‘i Regional Cuisine, along with wife Judy and daughters Ariana and Michelle, MALA is renowned for its distinctive brand of Mediterranean and Pacific Rim cuisine.

Until last November, the Ellman Family presided over a powerhouse trifecta of Lahaina restaurants which, besides MALA, included two adjacent dining establishments: Honu Seafood & Pizza and Frida’s Mexican Beach House. In a surprise move, the Ellmans sold MALA to the bright, ambitious (and successful) owners of Down the Hatch­­, also in Lahaina. Since then, these new(ish) owners have taken the MALA ball and run with it. Big time. Continue reading ‘mala ocean tavern: new(ish) owners cooking up exciting things’
