Update: Sakai of Hawaii
Hiroyuki Sakai with renderings of the new restaurant: Sakai of Hawaii
Back in July, Iron Chef Hiroyuki Sakai announced that he was opening a cafe in DFS Galleria Waikiki. The target date was July 2012, but construction just started last week due to permit hurdles. Sakai had a chance to check on progress while he was here for the Hawaii Food and Wine Festival; the new projected open date is in three months. Check out the construction at Sakai of Hawaii's Facebook page.
