Alan Wong's Restaurant Honolulu
This not-to-be-missed restaurant is like that very rare shell you stumble upon on a perfect day at the beach—well polished and without a flaw. We've never had a bad experience here, and we've never heard of anyone else having one either. The "Wong Way," as it's not-so-jokingly called by his staff, includes an ingrained understanding of the aloha spirit, evident in the skilled but unstarched service, and creative and playful interpretations of Island cuisine. Try Da Bag (clams and kalua pig steamed in an aluminum pouch), ginger crusted onaga (snapper), or if you're feeling indulgent, the chef's tasting menu. With warm tones of koa wood, and lauhala grass weaving, you'll forget you're on the third floor of an office building. www.alanwongs.com. Reservations essential. Credit cards accepted. No lunch.
