Concierge.com's insider take:
The old Gaylord's restaurant at the Kilohana Plantation is no more, but the beautiful patio-style space with an open-air courtyard has been reborn as 22° North. Fresh produce grown on-property (take the Kilohana Train Tour and you'll see the fields) complements local fish, eggs, and meats in whimsical lunch plates like the 22° North "sammy" (house-cured meats, pickled vegetables, fried egg, mayo, lettuce, and tomato) and dinner entrées like beef short rib ravioli or crispy line-caught barracuda. The new taste good/feel good menu hasn't alienated the Kauai ladies-who-lunch crowd or families seeking Sunday brunch. But the simple, hearty, almost Southern-style comfort food is also attracting a younger crowd of eco foodies who come for date-night sparks inspired by fresh-fruit cocktails and meals lit by flickering tiki torches.—Cathay Che
