Special Section: Annual All-Island Restaurant Guide

Our annual insert celebrates all the delicious dining options Hawai‘i offers. This year, we found better-than-basic pau hana dishes, happy hours for every occasion, perfect-for-summer mocktails and slushies, and a look at what happened to all the food trucks. We also show you how to navigate a charcuterie plate like a pro. Plus, chef Roy Yamaguchi honors the late Colin Nishida, founder of Side Street Inn, who passed away in February.

Take Two
