Team work makes the dream work...
We learned from the best and now we are so excited to share our newest passion project, Kitchen 5315.
Napa Recopuerto knows how to run a dining room. Starting off as a busser, he worked his way through the food and beverage industry landing him the title of General Manager of Cafe O'Lei Restaurants. He has been taking care of restaurant operations for a bulk of his career now and is ready to make the next step and make 5315 a reality.
Claire Pastula Byler has food and beverage in her blood. Her parents are the creative minds and backbone of Cafe O'Lei Restaurants and she's been there to see it all unfold. After completing college, she came back to Maui to join the family biz. Catering and events has been her home for the past 6 years now and she's excited to expand into her own venture.
Darren Byler is a people person. He understands the importance of a great relationship. With hospitality and a military background he knows how to work with people from all walks of life. Restaurants came into his life by marriage but it's been a seamless union. Management has been his forte and it's time to take that to the next level with 5315.
Executive Chef Ruben Macias loves the kitchen. Working directly under Chef Mike at Cafe O'Lei, he has absorbed so much knowledge over the years and it's time to apply it here at Kitchen 5315. He's got the fire and is able to keep the kitchen running smoothly while still producing some of the best flavors out there.
