Fodor's Expert Review Capers Epicurean
The pleasing scent of spices may entice you into this large, open restaurant, which serves meals from 7 am to 9 pm daily. If you’re in the mood for something sustaining, try the chicken shiitake linguine (a grilled chicken breast set on pasta tossed in a creamy mushroom sauce, then topped with crispy prosciutto). Afterward, wander to the dessert cabinet and choose from goodies like the chocolate-cherry frangipani tart. Half of the space is a delicatessen that sells preserves and specialty foods, such as chutney made from kūmara (a local sweet potato) and a rub made from kawa kawa (a native herb).
