After a year of eating, adventuring and shopping, it’s time for our annual Best of HONOLULU. We still sought out the best of everything—from local sake to seafood boil, bank to barbershop—and expanded our list with a finalist in every category chosen by our readers. As things continue to change, we cannot guarantee all winners will be open for business as usual. Still, you can support them by ordering takeout, gift cards or online products and tipping a little extra. We’ve included Instagram handles so you can interact with them virtually until we can celebrate these Bests together in person.
