Humuhumu’s description:
Lanai was a very short-lived Polynesian restaurant—it opened in 1961, and by 1962 had morphed into the legendary Hawaii Kai. It was above the Winter Garden Theatre in Times Square. Lanai was a partnership between Joe Kipness (who went on to own the Hawaii Kai with other partners) and Monte Proser, who two decades earlier had opened his Monte Proser's Beachcomber in this same spot. The Lanai logo of sarong-clad woman holding a theatrical-meets-tiki mask to her face was used for some mugs at Hawaii Kai.
