Norio's Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar
Located inside the Fairmont Orchid at the garden level, this restaurant appeals to both steak and seafood lovers. Chef Darren Ogasawara highlights everything from Australian A6 Wagyu rib eye (seasoned with five different kinds of Hawaiian sea salt) to the delicious hamachi-and-avocado sashimi served with ponzu-garlic sauce. Dry-aged meats from Kulana Farms are served on cedar planks, while free-range chicken and sustainably caught Hawaiian seafood round out the offerings. Chef Darren can adjust the menu to meet special dietary considerations; the gluten-free vegetable tempura or soy-free udon noodle are just as flavorful as the originals. Everything on the menu is made from scratch, including the sauces, plus the fish is as fresh as it gets. www.fairmont.com/orchid. Credit cards accepted. Closed Tues. and Wed. No lunch.
