Hawaii developer Kevin Showe plans to open a new restaurant Waikiki, public documents show.
Showe, who heads Honolulu-based National Housing Corp., has recently registered the trade names "Fish Hook Cafe" and "Fish Hook Restaurant" through his Manhattan Boys Venture LLC.
The Luana Waikiki Hotel & Suites' former space of Ville De Coco beauty spa and salon is listed as the address for the new Fish Hook Cafe. Showe is listed as the owner of the space along with a few others at the hotel, according to property tax records.
A Craigslist job advertisement shows that Fish Hook Cafe, a new restaurant opening at a Waikiki hotel, is looking for employees including prep cooks.
The Luana, a boutique hotel managed by Aqua-Aston Hospitality LLC, is located near Fort DeRussy Park on Kalakaua Avenue.
In 2015, Showe sold his property nearby that included the former Kyo-ya Restaurant to Japanese investors, who plan to build a condominium-hotel on that property.
