Beach dinner on North Shore? Please help if you know of one!

Anyone know of companies willing to do beach dinner on the North Shore? I planned on booking with Heavenly Creations and even moved my parents vow renewal up two days sooner so it would be on the North, not the South shore, and I thought they were holding it for me but by the time I called with my credit card someone booked it. I've moved my parents whole vow renewal around now so I can't do it another day and frankly I wouldn't with them now anyway. I came across this AJ, "iron chef Kauai", but he hasn't returned any of my calls or emails. Are there any other companies out there? I haven't found any other than the st. regis which is, of course, outrageous. I'm ready to pull my hair out.

Thank you

What exactly do you mean by 'beach dinner'? At a restaurant by the beach, or are you looking for someone to set up / cater something special on the beach?

I'd prefer if I could find one catered on the beach if there are any more companies that do it. I know a lot of the hotels do. but not sure I have many options on the north.

You might try getting ahold of A.J. Irons at his Opakapaka Food truck. He should be there now. (808) 634-6711. The company my son used was www.kauaiexperience.com They were very happy.

thank you, thank you!!! I'll try AJ now.

I'm having my own wedding too so it's just stressful and I really wanted to do that for my parents and was so upset when they gave away the date.

Thank you so much!

For some reason I have this name written down but I haven't used them.

Jessica@kauaiexperience.com

She is a personal chef.

Island catering is another name in my file. Emerson Keahi with Island Catering. Islandcatering@lava.net is what I have written down.

I believe the Hyatt does a beachside private dinner.

How much is St Regis? These private companies might be even more.

http://www.contemporaryflavorscatering.com/ You might also give this company, a subsidiary of Mark's Place, a call.

Jessica is no longer with Kauai Experience, but I'm sure they have someone else.

You might try Contemporary Flavors. It's run by Mark Oyama of Mark's Place in Puhi.

Mark's Place = YUM. I can vouch for his food; I live down the street from them and they're fattening me up quite well.

St. Regis is $1,100, per couple. Plus 21% service charge and tax! So, about $1,400. yikes.

Thanks 22Kauai. It looks like when I go to her website it has a new name.
