Ohana Starts Third Season in Gloucester

Ohana Starts Third Season in Gloucester

Chef Enx Continues Vision Featuring New American Cuisine

Ohana’s husband and wife team of Enx and Alyssa Dadulas is excited to start their third season featuring “New American cuisine, coupling local ingredients with French and Italian techniques, with an Asian influence.” It’s Chef Enx’s interpretation of all types of food. Chef Enx honed his skills as an executive chef in the kitchens of the legendary Roy Yamaguchi in Hawaii, and locally with renowned Boston chefs Barbara Lynch and Jean Joho of Brasserie Jo. In addition to a la carte offerings, creative sushi and a bar menu, Ohana features a prix fixe menu (available with or without wine pairings)

Ohana’s menu features local and regionally-sourced food from the land and sea with a tasty twist that brings in Asian spices from his background. A truly unique offering is butterfish which is marinated black cod accompanied by tempura green beans and vegetable sushi; two sauces of wasabi butter and uni butter complete this popular offering. The lunch menu includes a mixed Hawaiian plate of Teriyaki Grilled Salmon, Mongolian Pork Ribs & Blackened Shrimp. Of course, there are also tuna burgers, great sandwiches (such as a very unique duck pastrami) and creative takes on sushi. For meat lovers, there is the Big Kahuna burger and a kalbi marinated ribeye steak.

Having a prix fixe menu allows Chef Enx to show his talents with many different cuisines from Bolognese sauce with house made pasta to Peruvian chicken. Instead of running specials, Ohana changes its prix fixe menu weekly to take advantage of fresh local ingredients.

Everything from the warm rosemary focaccia served when people sit down to the out of sight desserts such as the delectable melting chocolate soufflé is made on premises. Ohana also features cocktails using locally made Ryan & Wood products including a Coastal Dog Cooler which is marketed in conjunction with Coastal Dog Apparel, a locally owned swimsuit company. Ohana loves to host and cater parties and has done so for a variety of businesses and families.

At Ohana, the name says it all. Ohana means family and you will be treated like family when you are there. Alyssa says “We see the restaurant as a family place—and it’s our family, too.”

Ohana is at 151 Main Street in Gloucester, 978-283-3200, www.ohanacapeann.com
