When Chef Kim Brun left Lava Lava Beach Club after helping the new restaurant open in 2015, something told her to keep her emblazoned Sous Chef coat. And it’s a good thing, as she sits in front of me over two years later wearing it while she waits for her new “Chef” coat to come in. She returned to the restaurant in April 2017 and was recently promoted to the head chef role, leading the kitchen in serving Hawaiian-themed fare to guests with their toes dipped in the sand.
