New Ranch House To Open

MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - EAST OAHU ISLANDER / JANUARY 6, 2010 / - By ALANA FOLEN

Armed with a new con­cept and din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, The Ranch House plans a soft open­ing Jan. 27 at the for­mer Ser­gio’s Ital­ian Restau­rant lo­ca­tion on Ka­pahulu Av­enue. A grand open­ing is set for Feb. 15.

“We did a lot of re­search and talked to the East Oahu com­mu­nity to find out what was miss­ing in the area,” ex­plained W. Buddy Moore, vice pres­i­dent of Restau­rants Hawaii. “Ser­gio’s was great, but it was more for spe­cial oc­ca­sions. The Ranch House is a more rou­tine place, more af­ford­able — it’s a fam­ily restau­rant.” The idea is to bring back some of the tra­di­tion of the orig­i­nal Ranch House of an ear­lier era in Aina Haina, he added.

Open daily for din­ner from 5 to 9:30 p.m., it will of­fer sig­na­ture items like prime rib, huli huli chicken, ox­tail soup, meat loaf and pork chops, to name a few. Moore de­scribes the menu as “a va­ri­ety of lo­cal com­fort food.”

“We’re work­ing hard on the recipes, and we want to cre­ate each item as one that each cus­tomer will want to come to the restau­rant specif­i­cally for,” he said. “We want each dish to be spe­cial.”

Ser­gio’s re­mains open at its orig­i­nal lo­ca­tion in the Rain­bow Bazaar on the sec­ond floor of the Hil­ton Hawai­ian Vil­lage.
