Three’s in Kihei offers a triple dose of fusion: Southwestern flair hits Pacific Rim and Hawaiian cuisine and bam! That makes for a winning menu. Let’s not forget their awesome raw bar, flatbreads and crafted cocktails. Contrast is key here with three dining rooms to set whatever mood you’re in: al fresco, indoor or surf lounge. The three chefs behind Three’s, Jaron Blosser, Travis Morrin and Christopher Cody, are proving their theory of diversity is a winning one. 1945 S. Kihei Rd.; 808-879-3133; threesbarandgrill.com
