New fall menus have appeared on the tables of Kauai Grill and Makana Terrace. There’s also three new sushi rolls, including the Prince Roll ($25) with panko crusted rice, hamachi, ahi, snow crab, avocado and macadamia nuts. But those aren’t the only changes at the luxurious North Shore resort.

This September, Franck Desplechin was promoted from executive sous chef of the St. Regis Princeville to executive chef. Franck began his culinary career when he was just 9 years old, when he attended L’Auberge des Glazicks in Plomodiern, France, under chef Olivier Belin. The restaurant earned a Michelin star one year after Franck started and he has since worked at a number of Michelin starred restaurants.

David Putnicki was promoted from manager at Makana Terrace to manager and sommelier at Kauai Grill. Maxime Michaud, former chef de cuisine at Kauai Grill, is now the executive sous chef at St. Regis Princeville. Finally, Noelani Lei Planas is the newly hired sous chef for Nalu Kai Bar and Grill, which always serves lunch, and tapas are served in the evening from May through September and again in December.
