I’m disappointed. With dozens of new restaurants coming on line, I was hoping the glory days of eating in Waikiki, were returning. Nope.

I’ve not lost hope entirely. After all, Nobu Waikiki, is scheduled to open later this month. The Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center is promising a Wolfgang Puck steakhouse like Cut (that’s its name) in Beverly Hills.

So far, however, things aren’t so good. I sampled four new restaurants—and was let down by three out of the four.
