Chef Mark Noguchi, formerly of Chef Mavro’s and Town, will celebrate the grand opening of his He’eia Kea Pier General Store & Deli partnership on May 15.

Guests at the Blue Planet Foundation’s Solar Lounge event at Fishcake May 11 learned ways to live stylishly and sustainably with solar energy, while being treated to sustainable cuisine courtesy of the new He’eia Kea Pier General Store & Market, which is celebrating its grand opening at 2 p.m. May 15.

There will be a blessing by Pastor Toby from Windward Nazarene, and “small kine” pupu will be served.

It’s an endeavor started by Vertical Junkies and ex-Chef Mavro and Townie, chef Mark Noguchi, who are working closely with Mahuahua Ai o Hoi and He’eia Fishpond toward revitalizing the Kaneohe landmark with naturally productive kalo fields and other agricultural production, while raising awareness of sustainable food practices.

All dishes served at the event were sourced as close to the area as possible, including kalua pig smoked in Kaneohe, o’io and ahi from local fishermen, kalo comes from the Reppun lo'i, and ho’io from Mahuahua ‘Ai o Hoi.

Look for them at 46-499 Kamehameha Highway. Call 235-2192.
