The locovore movement is hot in Hawaii, and has rapidly gained momentum over the years leading to new farm to table restaurants to be established island wide. All around the island restaurants that feature a menu with locally grown fruits and vegetables, and locally raised fish and meats can be found. While several offer local food at the casual level, many restaurants combine gourmet cooking with locally grown foods. From the busy streets of Honolulu to the country side of the island, farm to table restaurants decorate the island.
Centrally located in Honolulu is Town, one of the original farm to table restaurants on the island. Known for their slogan of "always local, organic when possible," Town offers a hip and modern atmosphere to enjoy locally sourced meals and drinks. Also in the heart of Honolulu you'll find gems like Alan Wong's and the Pineapple Room. Both feature menus compiled by famed chef Alan Wong, who has blended gourmet and local food together.
Out in the countryside on the North Shore, restaurant-slash-nightlife spot Surfer, the Bar offers a menu of local dishes made with locally grown produce. Come in for dinner and drinks, and catch some live music later on. Pa'akai is the North Shore's latest endeavor in the farm to table movement, and offers gourmet local dishes.
