New eats: Side Street Inn on Da Strip

Waiting for Side Street

Picture 1 of 9

By John Garcia

Side Street Inn’s new location on Kapahulu has been busy every single night since opening in late July, and it hasn’t died down yet. You can see the line while driving by. My first impression: The place is packed — make reservations unless you want to wait.

Second impression: Parking around the old Hawaiian Dredging building, where SSI on Da Strip occupies a ground-floor space, is a bear. If you go, you’ll have to find street parking or valet at $5 a pop. Not bad if you plan on staying a while with friends. Probably best to carpool.
