More bar than food, although if the food is good, that's just gravy. i'm looking for a good selection of beers, bottles and drafts. not necessarily the main stream, bud, coors, etc...

Butcher in Honolulu

i think you can order primal cuts from north shore cattle company (grass fed beef). they're at the saturday morning KCC farmers market. and i also think you can order specialty cuts from them as well.

Not a good start for the americans...

Even with all high profile chefs... Keler, Boulud, still not a shoe in at Bocuse d'Or.

Padovani's Chocolates now open

for chocolatiers, there's also honolulu chocolate company at ward, close to kaka'ako kitchen. they have a good selection of imported valrhona type stuff, as well as in house chocolates. try the hand rolled chocolate decadence. they melt in your mouth.

Honolulu Bakeries

for filipino bakeries, go to nandings. 2 locations. they're on gulick avenue, makai (ocean side) of n. king street. also in waipahu, ewa end close to don quijote's. go for the spanish rolls (soft and buttery w/a little sugar). they also have pandesal, although the now defunct alredo's had better ones.

there's also kapuakea, but they're a made to order place. yes, i know not exactly user friendly. they have awesome lilikoi lemon bars and brownies and choco breads. they need at least 2 days advance notice for orders. great for omiyage.

there's a lot of specialty bakeries. esp for mochi and senbei.

Looking for fresh passion fruit

i think i saw some the other day at kokua market near the university. not sure, but you should call first before you make the trek from north shore. you could also try china town or the saturday kcc farmers market, but i dont think you would be able to phone in to check availability.

BEST PLACE (in Honlulu) FOR ORDERING FOOD TO TAKE ON PICNIC

If you're set on hibachi-ing stuff, but dont want to do prep you can go to a korean place and buy pre-marinated stuff. i know gina's does it. you can also pick up may's (kalbi, bbq chicken, burgers) at pretty much all the grocery stores. poke at tamuras, tamashiros. there's also the okazuya around town. i don't frequent kailua/waimanalo area to often so I cant really give you more recs aside from foodland and zippys. but if you need breakfast prior to going down, there's always boots and kimos.

Late Reservation at French Laundry

So I lucked out with a 9 pm reservation at TFL. I'm really looking forward to it, but again its at 9. So my question is is there fun/good to do in napa/yountville prior to res, or should we just go directly to the restaurant?

No Reservations:Hawaii - back out of the hole

Not a bad show, but there was a bunch of places that he could've gone. While on the north shore he could've gone to Matsumoto Shave Ice/Aoki Shave Ice, Giovani's. I think he should've included more of the nieghbor islands. Sam Sato's on Maui or Hamura's on Kauai.
