Fodor's Expert Review Merriman's

$$$$ Waimea Modern Hawaiian

The signature restaurant of Peter Merriman, one of the pioneers of Hawaii Regional Cuisine, is the home of the original wok-charred ahi: it's seared on the outside, leaving sashimi on the inside. Although lunch prices are reasonable, dinner is "resort pricey," so prepare to splurge. The interior is plain and boxy, but that's not what shines here. Many locals choose it for their special occasions. The extensive wine list is impressive and includes many selections poured by the glass.
