Peter Merriman is one of the original Hawaii Regional Cuisine founders. "He began this farm-to-table restaurant in Waimea 20 years ago, long before the notion came into vogue," says HONOLULU. Merriman's only uses local, organic produce and poultry in its dishes, and you can really taste the difference fresh ingredients make. Gracious service in a plantation-style building add to the charm. Lunch is, Monday to Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., dinner nightly, 5:30 to 9.
