Fodor's Review

In late 2012 this restaurant's opening was the most exciting culinary thing to happen on the island in almost a decade; three years later, Honolulu locals are still abuzz. The dark, brick-lined space that was once the storage basement of the Japanese department store Shirokiya is also a private wine club—hence the name. In summer 2014, French Laundry alums Jonathan Mizukami (executive chef) and Eddie Lopez (pastry chef) took over the kitchen. Maui-born Mizukami has created two new tasting menus: a chef's tasting and a vegetable-focused one that boasts inventive dishes like savory breadfruit pudding with hearts of palm and a carrot ravioli of sorts. Expensive is an understatement, and it's sometimes a tough sell to convince diners that magic can happen in a basement at the mall, but the creative culinary experience is worth the splurge. At least once.
