THE STORY OF IRONWOOD
"I cook because of the intimate connection that it creates with people; few interactions come close to that."
- Chef Megan Smith
One special day a few years ago, Megan was on a drive with her Dad who lives on Oahu, when she asked about the occasional evergreen trees that look out of place amongst the tropical plants. Her Dad told her they were Ironwood trees, not indigenous to Hawaii; Megan was curious and taken by their beauty. She discovered the trees are not invasive but rather are beneficial to where they grow; improving soil quality, bearing edible fruit and providing wood great for cooking and building. That is the foundation of Ironwood American Bistro; to be beneficial to the community and beyond.
