Fodor's Review

Town. Opened in 2005, stylish Town remains a hot spot for Honolulu's creative class and farm-to-table diners. Chef-owner Ed Kenney and his partner Dave Caldiero offer a Mediterranean-eclectic menu ranging from hand-cut pastas and refreshing composed salads (pastas and salads) to clean preparations of fish and meat (polenta with egg and asparagus or buttermilk panna cotta). Get a bunch of tasting plates to share—ahi tartare on risotto cakes and mussels in a fennel-Cinzano broth are instant winners—or go big with dishes such as opah (moonfish) in a Meyer-lemon-butter sauce and pork belly with salsa verde and polenta. (Menu items change daily depending on availability of local ingredients.) If you're a vegetarian, ask for the bountiful veggie plate, which isn't on the menu. The restaurant serves breakfast and lunch, too. 3435 Waialae Ave., Kaimuki, Honolulu, HI, 96816. 808/735–5900. Reservations essential. Closed Sun.

Local, Organic, Ono.....

While other finer restaurants may demand a yearly visit or two, we will go to TOWN (no pun intended) weekly. With the perfect combination of delicious, simply prepared food (comprised of mostly local ingredients), a young, warm staff, and incredible bang for the buck, Town is, hands-down, our favorite restaurant in Hawaii.

a great night out

town is a great place to search out for a highly enjoyable evening. Whilst on Hawaii for five nights, we ate there twice, and they were closed on a third. The restaurant gave us a warm welcome, served fabulous chicken on a bed of torn bread and pancetta, and mixed one of the best cosmolitans I had tasted.
