    Contributing to Town's hip atmosphere are its rotating art exhibits. Currently showing: small canvases and sculptures by creepy-cool muralist Ryan Higa. Who knew he also worked in miniature? Love it.

    Amazing dishes. Farm to Table concept executed to perfection. Servers are knowledgable and know how to pair you dinners with great wines. A must while in Honolulu.

    One of my favorite Honolulu restaurants is Town in Kaimuki. Chef/Owner Ed Kenney is creative, resourceful, and has become the face of food sustainability in Hawaii. The menu changes regularly, but I can say that everything I’ve had at Town was a hit. Chef Kenney’s specialty is pork; it’s amazing to see what he does with it. On my last visit, we had the Shinsato Farm Pork Belly, a wrapped loin with ulu mash and bitter greens. Another hit was the Hand-Cut Pasta, served with Waimanalo Cremini mushrooms with Ma’O dandelion greens.

    I had a great meal at Town. It reminded me of Market Fresh Bistro on Maui..simple farm to table yumminess! The menu changes based on what local ingredients are available but I highly recommend any menu items featuring hamakua mushrooms.

    Ed Kenney is the chef at Town restaurant in Kaimuki. Amazing locally sourced food, and specialty cocktails. A fun restaurant with a hip vibe. Can spot local t.v. stars eating here. Another must place to eat.

    People know this as an outstanding restuarant for dinner but - little known fact - great place for breakfast. It's not crowded, it's relaxing, and has a nice menu. Try the egg, fontina, prosciutto panino.

    "Local first, organic whenever possible, and with Aloha always." The motto at this neighborhood gem says it all. Chef Ed Kenney creates amazing dishes using local staples like this griddled paiai with boquerones, tomato, shallot and purslane. Every bite was amazing. Wash it down with their craft cocktails - highly recommended!

    Tasty, yummy, and delicious. Always a good and consistent experience. Friendly staff and great food. Extensive beer and wine lists. This is a place for people who enjoy dining out. This restaurant really has its act together and knows what it is doing. They really represent the local movement.

Description

Town is a unique restaurant that maintains a conscious effort to provide their patrons with some of the most fresh dishes available. They literally base their menu on what local ingredients they can find on any given week, resulting in a selection that is constantly changing. The atmosphere is exceptionally casual, with open air dining options available if you choose to sit outside. Patrons here ... read more
will notice a subtle note of Italian flavoring to a cuisine that is otherwise wholly American. Even their wine list is limited to selections from local artisans, resulting in a dining experience that is just about as Hawaiian as they come without focusing on traditional Hawaiian food. Along with the wines, there are a number of other alcoholic drinks offered here, making this a fun place to cut loose with friends or make some new ones. It's a bit of a ride out of Waikikik, but for a unique meal that is guaranteed to contain only the freshest ingredients, Town is the place to go.
