Description:

This is a very interesting find. The Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown, New York had a Kona Kai restaurant which operated in the in the 1980s. This is the fifth documented Kona Kai (Philly, Chicago, and two in Kansas City) location in the chain.

I found this photo on-line at the Westchester Historical society which shows that there was a definite 1980s Tiki vibe going on - and a high TIPSY factor.



Some ads from the local newspapers. The dates ran through 1990.





















Pretty cool to find this place after having avoided the Tiki radar so long.
