Snag an oceanfront table where the gentle tide nearly tickles your toes and spy on the green sea turtles for whom this restaurant is named. Honu’s diverse menu is guaranteed to please someone in your party, from the fried oyster sandwiches and authentic Neapolitan pizzas to the wok-fried Dungeness crab. The Middle Eastern kale salad will turn doubters into believers: Finely chopped kale is massaged with preserved lemon vinaigrette and tossed with bittersweet walnuts, rich and salty pecorino shavings, sweet slivers of chewy dates, and pomegranate seeds that burst on the tongue. Gluten-free and keiki (children’s) menus are available, along with an extensive offering of draft beers, single malt scotches, and handcrafted cocktails.
