Lady M, a popular pastry restaurant that has locations across the country, is opening its first Hawaii boutique in Waikiki, public records show.
The company, which is headed by Hawaii native Ken Romaniszyn whose family owns the Wasabi Bistro restaurant group, filed a $45,000 building permit with Honolulu regulators Tuesday for a new store at the Waikiki Beach Walk mixed-use complex.
Earlier this year, Romaniszyn registered a new business in Hawaii called "Lady M Hawaii LLC."
Honolulu-based Roy K. Yamamoto Architect AIA Inc. is listed as the architect for the company's first Hawaii store. Lady M sells cakes and pastries, as well as savory items including salads and a variety of sandwiches.
Waikiki Beach Walk, which is near the Trump Waikiki hotel and the Halekulani hotel, includes such tenants as Candy Bar Hawaii, Yard House, Giovanni Pastrami and Roy's Waikiki.
