‘I only open where I’m inspired. Something about the place needs to speak to me and the relaxed island vibe of Honolulu was the perfect fit. Downstairs we’ve created the ultimate beach bar, where people can stroll in straight from the sand, while huge skylights bathe the upstairs dining restaurant in sunshine. The menu is inspired by the local tropical produce and a fusion of Vietnamese, Japanese and indigenous cuisines (with a bit of Brooklyn and Portland thrown in). We’re also serving all the bills classics and, something new for us, pizzas.'
