The Honolulu Museum of Art's cool courtyards and galleries filled with works by masters from Monet to Hokusai are well worth a visit and, afterward, so is this popular lunch restaurant. The open-air café is flanked by a burbling water feature and eight-foot-tall ceramic "dumplings" by artist Jun Kaneko—a tranquil setting in the shade of a 75-year-old monkeypod tree in which to eat your salade niçoise (featuring seared coriander-crusted ahi) or fork-tender filet mignon sandwich with dijon-caper relish. You'll rub shoulders with a who's who of the local art and business communities. Reservations are recommended. There is no museum admission charge to eat at the café.
