Jay's Place Pasta, Pizza & Subs is the newest eatery to open at the Wharf Cinema Center on Front Street in Lahaina.
"Mulligan's at the Wharf closed after Halloween, and I was working at Amigo's nearby on the middle level of the mall," says owner Jose Pascual, who saw an opportunity to turn his dream of running his own restaurant into a reality.
All of the kitchen equipment was replaced by the Pascuals as well as all of the furniture.
Owners Luz and Jose Pascual with their son and the restaurant’s namesake, Jayden, get ready to dine on his favorite dishes, pasta marinara and pizza.

"We painted the walls a nice orange color and transformed the ambience into a cozy, family-style Italian restaurant. We also added four big flat screen television sets."
Open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Jay's Place serves Italian pasta dishes, pizzas, appetizers, salads, subs and a full bar with cocktails, beer and wine. There is no pizza delivery "yet," but there is plenty of validated parking for takeout orders.
Pastas include linguine vongole, frutti de mare, and vodka penne. Dinner specialties range from New York steak to chicken cacciatore to tequila-lime mahimahi.
Watch a game on TV and munch buffalo wings, fried calamari and more.
