BEST NEW RESTAURANTS
Cabanas (Oahu) The Kahala Mandarin Oriental's new restaurant offers seductive food and oceanfront tents that can be closed for privacy. Chef Wayne Hirabayashi, who also oversees the formal Hoku's, prepares bouillabaisse with lilikoi (passion fruit) aioli and grilled local fish in lobster broth, served family-style on a lazy Susan (5000 Kahala Ave., Honolulu; 808-739-8888).
Formaggio (Oahu) Lyle Fujioka has opened Honolulu's first enoteca next to his wine shop. It's in a strip mall, but you won't notice that as you enjoy portobello panini (with house-made mozzarella) and one of 35 wines sold by the glass (2919 Kapiolani Blvd., Honolulu; 808-739-7719).
