A trip to this romantic Middle Eastern oasis pays off after a narrow, beach-hugging ride along the exquisite North Shore coastline. Owner-chef Imad Beydoun, a native of Beirut, serves multiple hummus appetizers, stuffed grape leaves, baba ghanoush, crispy spinach and lamb fatayers alongside traditional favorites like rib-eyes and rosemary rack of lamb. The seafood tower is an impressive presentation of shrimp, scallops and fresh fish resting on grilled pineapple and mashed potatoes. Local fish including ahi, ono and seasonal catches add Pacific Rim touches when combined with fresh local produce. Belly-dancing performances and live music along with Tuesday's luau (reservations suggested), add to the relaxed ambiance. Arrive early (around 6 pm) for prime seats and to enjoy the lovely ocean views at day's end. www.kauaimedgourmet.com. Credit cards accepted. Closed Sun.
