1 night in HNL and need progressive dinner recs

edible complex Jun 9, 2010 08:41 AM

so I have only 1 night in HNL and too many restaurants on my hit list. if I did a progressive dinner, where are good places to start and finish. don't be afraid to tell me where to go, what to eat, and that I will like it. will have a car, so will be mobile. prefer to find places in close proximity, so as to not eat time. and don't mind bellying up to the bar to eat and drink.

a few on my list are: Alan Wong's, Roy's, 3660 On The Rise, Chef Mavro's,Indigo

much thnx!

    Sasebune for the best sushi a gaijin can get. $$$$ but worth it. Oh, and you go to the 'awa bar on Queen Street afta.

      Add AZURE at the Royal Hawaiian. Went last night and it was awesome.

        Russkar-What did you have at Azure? I usually eat at the bar when in town and always looking for suggestions.

          UES: Chef's Tasting Menu ($65-) . We dined there again this week and everything was exactly the same. Very Wine friendly ($15- corkage which is normally waived, which is great for all of us that are Wine Collectors.

          Let us know where you ended up and review!

          Stage then Sapori Enoteca which is practically across the street. Maybe mini tasting menu's at both?

          We have been to everything on your list many times and I think you'll find the above a refreshing change.

            If convenience is a consideration maybe starting at either Hiroshi or Vino and walking across the hall to the other since they share a space! Then if you are staying in Waikiki a nightcap at Lewers Lounge would be completely wonderful.

            Stay at one great place so you can wine and dine! my faves-Taormina Sicilian Cuisine on beachwalk, Orchids at the Halekulani, Hy's steakhouse, The Hanohano room at the top of the Sheraton Wailiki-esp for the view, Azure at the Royal Hawaiian, and The Hau Tree Lanai. google them all for info.

              THNX. We're staying at the Sheraton Waikiki, and the Hanohano is now Twist with an interesting wine menu. I ate at Hanohano about 14 yrs ago, and yes the view is stunning. We may be doing the Sunday brunch at Orchids.
