World renowned, Iron Chef Morimoto’s restaurants located in Philadelphia, Napa, New York, Tokyo, Mumbai, and Boca Raton, are now hitting Waikiki. He has also been the head chef, of one of my favorite restaurants here in Waikiki and world wide, Nobu. Can’t wait to eat there. They are open for dinner, lunch and breakfast as well as having a seperate lounge menu. Perhaps I will swing by for a light lunch one day soon. Friends have told me that the restaurant is very bright, and that takes from the atmosphere, and that they prefer Nobu. I love the bright lime green decor, beautiful lacquered wooden tables, vibrant violet orchid pictures, and panoramic glass, with views of who know’s what? Perhaps this would be a more enjoyable lunch spot, than a dark romantic dinner.
