The Hale ‘Aina Awards, Hawaii's longest running and most prestigious dining honors, marked the return to the screen for hosts Cody Easterbrook and Yasmin Dar on Sep 14th, 2020.

 

The awards, started by HONOLULU Magazine in 1984 to honor the best restaurants in Hawai‘i, went virtual for the first time ever due to the current Corona economy. 

Cody Easterbrook and cohost Yasmin Dar didn't let that put a damper on the evening as they lauded the top dining establishments and named the Restaurateur of the Year during the live virtual awards show produced by Ryan Kalei Tsuji Media Productions. 

Despite the difficult year where many Hawai'i restaurants remain shuttered or operate under limited capacity due to statewide lockdowns, the restaurants were recognized for providing sustenance despite these unprecedented times.

"Since the pandemic began I've been ordering from all my favorite local restaurants, " explained Easterbrook, "and they've provided much-needed comfort food during such a difficult time. So it's truly an an honor to be able to recognize these restauranteurs as host of the Hale 'Aina Awards"

 

The digital-dependent show offered realtime recognition, including trivia, prizes and even allowed for live words shared from restauranteurs who video called into the awards program.
