Lewers and Kalakaua
Unfortunately, this hot corner has not cornered the market on great cuisine.

(page 1 of 3)Unlike many people in this town, I never gave up on Waikiki. I always thought it was the most interesting square mile of Honolulu. I was much encouraged by the redevelopment of the heart of the district, the corner of Lewers Street and Kalakaua Avenue, where the Beach Walk development met the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center’s self-transformation. By and large, I’ve been disappointed by the culinary offerings that resulted— too same-same, too lame, too chain. But I never give up.
