A Trio of Culinary Traditions:
Hawaiian, Asian & Caribbean
The Eating House 1503 is steeped in culinary history, with expectations to match the inspirations it was built upon. One of the first restaurants in Hawaii, aptly named Eating House, was opened by Peter Fernandez in the mid-1800s. The namesake is also a nod to celebrated chef, author and TV personality Roy Yamaguchi's restaurant in Hawaii, Eating House 1849, while paying homage to the year the Cayman Islands were first spotted by Christopher Columbus, 1503.
Chef Yamaguchi, who hails from Japan, brings his heritage to the table and menu with his Asian-infused culinary techniques. Much of what is sourced and served at Eating House 1503 comes straight from Grand Cayman, bringing a thoughtfully-infused island vibe, Caribbean flavour and soul to the mix.
Whether it's a seat at the bar for a casual bite or settling into a table for a special occasion, Eating House 1503 promises to deliver a memorable experience.
Culinary pioneer and Roy's founder Roy Yamaguchi was born in Tokyo. It was while visiting his grandparents on Maui that he had his first taste of seafood bought fresh at seaside piers - fond memories that would shape his future career.
At 19, he graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in New York as a master chef and moved to Los Angeles where he served as executive chef at La Serene. After gaining invaluable experience in LA, Roy decided it was time to head closer to his roots. He moved to Hawaii and opened the first Roy's in 1988.
Roy Yamaguchi is regarded as an international culinary visionary and the creator of Hawaiian fusion cuisine. His numerous accolades include the prestigious James Beard Award. Roy has also hosted six seasons of the television show "Hawaii Cooks with Roy Yamaguchi," seen in more than 60 countries, and has published three cookbooks: Roy's Fish and Seafood, Roy's Feasts from Hawaii and Hawaii Cooks: Flavors from Roy's Pacific Rim Kitchen.
