Migrant was a modern local cuisine restaurant in the Wailea Marriott resort hotel. Migrant CLOSED on May 15, 2016. It may re-open, possibly in Wailuku, in the future. It was at 3700 Wailea Alanui Drive. Phone 808-875-9394.
Everything I have eaten at Migrant has been excellent. Migrant’s chef is Sheldon Simeon, who became famous in 2013 on the Top Chef TV show, where he was the “fan favorite.” He has also won awards from Star Chefs, the James Beard Foundation, and People’s Choice. He previously worked at Star Noodle in Lahaina, before coming to Migrant.
The food at Migrant is sized and priced perfectly for sharing. There are innovative appetizers such as Choy Choi (pak choi & cabbage), Blistered Shishito Peppers, Kale Salad, and Ahi tuna in olive oil.
There is a wide variety of delicious entrees such as Filipino Sweet Pork, Dynamite Bomb fresh fish, and Hibachi Hanger Steak. There are seven noodle dishes including Garlic Noodles, Pancit Noodles, and Saimin.
Migrant was only open for dinner. There were indoor and outdoor tables, with a beautiful sunset view.
