Brown's Beach House at the Fairmont Orchid Hawaii. Nestled alongside the resort's sandy bay, Brown's Beach House offers beautiful sunset dining and innovative cuisine. Attention to detail is evident in the sophisticated menu, like the Alae salt-roasted filet mignon served with kabocha pumpkin mash and truffle foie gras demi. Seafood lovers might like the crab-crusted Kona kampachi or the Sustainable Seafood Trio, featuring fresh catch from the Kona Coast. The menu
includes choices that accommodate diet-specific preferences such as macrobiotic, raw, vegan, gluten-free, and diabetic—amazingly, these offerings are as flavorful and inventive as everything else on the main menu.
