“Sharing Aloha, One Plate at a Time”
Warren Seta & Jess Kelley
Hawaiian born and raised Chef Warren Seta and his wife Jess Kelley bring their many years in the restaurant industry to life with their casual Hawaiian plate lunch concept, Ono Hawaiian Plates. Both spent the majority of their careers in the high end fine dining world. With Seta owning many successful eateries in Las Vegas, Seattle and Honolulu and Kelley honing her skills in such venues as the Four Seasons Resorts Lana’i, Waldorf Astoria, Roy’s Hawaii the duo made the jump and moved to the Midwest. They were missing and craving authentic Hawaiian food from the islands. They decided to venture onto a series of pop-ups to satisfy their yen for Hawaiian plate lunch and see if the Midwest palette would find it as enjoyable as they did. The overwhelming response as indicated by the long lines and the rave reviews led them to believe that opening a brick and mortar in the Twin Cities was the right move.
