Dashed Hopes in Waikiki

The report on three restaurants isn’t pretty, but the fourth is a standout.

The Man About Town protested. When we were drinking our little samples, he’d tried the Framboise. He had the standard American reaction: “Horrible. It’s not even beer, it tastes like Kool-Aid.”

Never underestimate the power of ice cream to adjust someone’s world view. Confronted with a scoop of vanilla ice cream floating on top of the Lindemans Framboise, he went crazy. “This is the greatest dessert ever. I can’t believe it. This is the only reason I’d ever come back here.”

For the record, Lindemans Framboise does not taste like Kool-Aid. It tastes remarkably like fresh raspberries, which you might keep in mind the next time you’re ordering your date a beer.

We also ordered a chocolate stout float, but raspberry’s the way to go. Dinner for two, with a remarkably restrained quantity of beer, was $124 with tip.
