The Sheraton Waikiki recently opened RumFire, (photo above) a new bar and grill that offers the largest selection of vintage rums in the U.S. Its menu lists more than 101 brands of rum—80 of which have never been available in Hawaii—by country, from Anguila to Venezuela. Mixologist Francesco Lafranconi has created signature drinks, including a cucumber and lavender mojito and deconstructed lava flow, to complement the restaurant’s tapas-style cuisine. We loved the tiny ‘ahi tacos by executive sous chef Colin Hazama and the restaurant's private outdoor fire pits.
