Award-winning chef Michael Mina honored troops this Memorial Day by treating them to a complimentary meal at his newest Hawaii eatery, The Street.
From 2-6 p.m., military personnel with military or veteran identification received a voucher for complimentary food items from various hawker stations.
For those who missed it, the eatery has another offer.
“We’re just excited to be part of community, excited and honored to offer a 50-percent discount to all military personnel forever on food purchases, not just today for Memorial Day, but every day, we welcome those who fight and protect us,” said Patric Yumel, president of Mina Group.
“I stay at home and watch Army movies, but someone told me to come out and do this and I took a chance, and I can’t believe the feelings I have for the appreciation that people give us,” said veteran Franck Mallet. “I’m really touched and thankful for people helping us, I really am.”
The Street, A Michael Mina Social House, is located on the ground floor of International Market Place in Waikiki, and features nine restaurant concepts, three bars, and a coffee shop.
