Everyone knows who Mick Fleetwood is, but what many don’t realize is that aside from being one of the founding members and drummer of the legendary Fleetwood Mac, he is also a successful restauranteur in Lahaina, Maui. Fleetwood’s on Front Street, Lahaina HI was opened by Mick with the idea of serving “comfort food in solid portions” within a fine dining establishment. The restaurant, run by chef Scott Leibfried (formerly featured on Gordon Ramsey’s “Hell’s Kitchen”), strives to honor the land, the people, and the neighborhood in this Hawaiian town. All ingredients are bought from local purveyors and farmers, and the restaurant grows its own herbs. Leibfried’s kitchen is all about freshness, and familiarity within the local community.
When dining at Fleetwood’s one can enjoy a variety of flavors, from Gnocci and Pears to a 72 Hour Short Rib served with rosemary polenta, rainbow carrots, and a savory demi glace. The sommelier also curates an extensive and enjoyable wine list that boasts plenty of Mick Fleetwood’s own wines as well as a selection from Coastal California and other popular wine regions. If you find yourself touring the beaches of Maui, this Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s restaurant is a perfect spot for any relaxing, and flavorful dining experience.
