Hawaii's celebrity chefs all have their showplaces on the island, including Alan Wong's, Chef Mavro and DK (Kodama)'s Steakhouse, many of them exemplars of "Hawaii regional cuisine," which favors gussied-up versions of favorite local dishes. To sample the flavors that inspire them (for a quarter of the price), seek out Side Street Inn or Me's Bar-B-Que, both low on ambiance but high on value. If you're looking for oceanfront romance, the restaurants in Oahu's top hotelsthe Halekulani, the Kahala Resort, and the Turtle Bay Resortare sure bets.A caveat for vegetarians and the health-conscious: Hawaii chefs tend to be generous with their salt and red meat.
