Lineage Hilo-born Chef Sheldon Simeon was a finalist on season 10 of Top Chef — and the show helped him realize the appeal of his soulful, heritage-based cooking. Today he shocks and awes in his upscale Wailea eatery Lineage with daring ingredients, like kimchi dip and crispy Huli Huli chicken skin garnishing a cocktail crafted with Prairie cucumber vodka, shoyu and habanero shrub. Expect twists such as a mai tai made with banana milk punch, brewed with Earl Grey, raisin, and coconut. Menu highlights include Chef Sheldon classics like adobo with fried turkey tails and oyster mushrooms, and pork n’ peas, a family recipe with tomato gravy. Wash it all down with the quintessential Hawaiian chili pepper water, a condiment and digestive aid served in a take-home flask.
