Fodor's Expert Review The Pineapple Room by Alan Wong
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
For some people, this restaurant is the only reason to go to Macy's. At Alan Wong's more casual second spot, the chef de cuisine plays intriguing riffs on local food themes. Power lunchers confer over the stack-'em-high burger—made with locally raised grass-fed beef, bacon, cheddar cheese, hoisin-mayonnaise spread, avocado salsa, and a huge crispy onion ring—it's one of the best in town. (Wong's take on the classic loco moco—this one made with Kuahiwi Ranch beef, fried rice, and veal jus—is worth trying, too.) Those who lean toward lighter fare may prefer the Caesar salad with Islands-style grilled chicken or sesame-crusted opah (moonfish) in a yuzu ponzu sauce. Service is professional and attentive. The bar offers a nice spot for the solo diner looking for a respite. The dining room can get a bit loud at lunch. Breakfast is served only on weekends. Reservations are recommended.
