To Our Valued Customer

We are please to announce that we will be offering a new menu starting May 15, 2008. If we were asked to title this new menu it would be  “The Road Home” as we embark on a journey back to our origin. 

We would like to thank all of our loyal customers at Duc’s Bistro for an unforgettable past fifteen years. It has been a pleasure serving each and every one of you. You have embraced us with unconditional love and aloha spirit and for that we are deeply grateful.

We also wish to acknowledge and thank Robert “Bobby” Mc Keague.   He has stood by us with incomparable loyalty, dedication, and compassion these past thirteen years.  We are better for knowing Robert and we will certainly miss him, not as an employee but as a friend.

Our vision of Duc’s Bistro has always been the uncompromising  pursuit of providing the best hospitality with unparalleled quality, freshness, and flavor in our cuisine.   Our new menu and will be a continuation of that vision.

The inspiration and vision for this menu began to take form after the political relationship between the United States and Vietnam began to normalize, allowing us to freely return home to Vietnam.  The numerous trips to Vietnam began to cultivate the idea of combining the unique dishes of Vietnamese cuisine with the lush and fresh ingredients of Hawaii.  We were also curious to find out if we could combine the effortless beauty of Vietnamese food with the refinement of western methods and presentations.  Would the process take away too much while adding too little?  Could we apply all the things that we have learn in thirty-three years of being in the restaurant industry and make Vietnamese food even better?  Could we take a cuisine that is so elegantly simple and make it simply elegant?

The result is a menu that represents a lifetime’s worth of work, love, perseverance, and learning.  From childhood memories of our favorite Vietnamese dishes, to our first jobs in America at the Space Needle Restaurant in 1975, to all the things we have learned through owning our many restaurants, and to all of those who have unconditionally given us invaluable lessons in culinary and in life.

We have certainly enjoyed our journey and we would love to share with the wonderful people of Hawaii what we have learned and discovered.

Mahalo,
