    Kiss bassist Gene Simmons performed in concert after the the Australian Grand Prix at the Albert Park circuit in Melbourne, Australia on March 16, 2008.

Rock & Brews Paia opened for business at 11 a.m. Wednesday, but famous KISS rockers Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley were not present for the first lunch service.

The restaurant’s famous co-founders were present for the blessing about a month and a half-ago, according to the hostess on duty Wednesday afternoon.

“We like to call them our mascots,” she said.

The Star-Advertiser reported on the planned restaurant two years ago, which raised community hackles in the historically low-key town.

The restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Rock & Brews also has locations in Southern California and Los Cabos, Mexico.
