New Restaurants Open on Oahu

Recognize the green on Prima’s smoked local fish? It’s purslane.

Desserts are equally unexpected: strawberries and whipped cream on a brioche, a hardly sweet ricotta tart with peach jam, and a torrone that wasn’t a torrone. A torrone is usually a nougat. Here the soft, rich, hazelnut-flavored cylinder of milk chocolate contained at its heart an apple banana. I don’t even usually eat much dessert, and I hogged this.

There’s nothing safe about the food at Prima, but it works (well, maybe not the purslane). You can bring your own wine for a $5 corkage, and it’s not terribly expensive. We spent $125 for an appetizer-entrée-dessert for three, and you could always fill up on $14 pizza if you’re keeping your cost down.

It was the most fun we had all month.
