Buffet

Readers’ Pick

We’re betting there are an awful lot of elastic waistbands at the Orchids restaurant at the Halekulani on Sunday mornings. How else to deal with the superb, top-notch spread that takes you from sashimi through eggs Benedict through Kobe-style roast baron of beef, crepes plump with ricotta and blueberry (gasp), a design-your-own omelet, a Halekulani popover smeared with poh-a berry preserves—and that’s just getting warmed up. The $52 oceanfront buffet is so popular, in fact, you need to reserve a year ahead for the big holidays like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Easter and Christmas. 2199 Kalia Road, 923-2311, www.halekulani.com.
