Celebrated chef Peter Merriman’s more casual outpostspotlights local, organic produce, pasture-raised beef, and sustainably caught fish—all of which translate here to better-tasting food. Pull up a seat at the lively bar here and enjoy saimin (soup with locally made noodles), bulgogi pork tacos, or Waipoli greens with beet and chèvre. The expansive drink menu is among the island’s best—offering everything from fresh coconut water, kombucha, and “shrubs” (soda or juice with fresh muddled herbs) to award-winning handcrafted cocktails (especially the passionfruit foam-topped mai tai). The dessert menu is less inspired; the cream pies are only so-so. There’s live music at 1, 4, and 7pm daily. Note: A second location at the Whalers Village shopping mall in Kaanapali serves the same fare, with similar entertainment.
