It feels like a little place you've discovered, but many have already raved about Peter Merriman, one of 11 top chefs in the state who spearheaded the Hawaii regional cuisine phenomenon. The basic philosophy? Take the freshest local ingredients and prepare each dish to order. As that might imply, this is not a quick or cheap meal (dinner entrées are in the $20–$40 range). Merriman delivers a little bit of the familiar blended with local flavors (e.g., kalua pig and sweet onion quesadilla). His version of the "mixed plate," a taste of three signature dishes (ponzu mahimahi, fillet steak with hamakua mushrooms, and wok-charred ahi), is especially worthy. The restaurant also participates in "Behind the Scenes of Hawaii regional cuisine" farm tours, twice-monthly events hosted by the Hawaii Forest and Trail Service that each culminate in a four-course meal.

Open Mondays through Fridays 11:30 am to 1:30 pm and 5:30 to 9 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 5:30 to 9 pm.
