Try the Is­land Take on Fine Din­ing

101 Things to Do (Big Island) - - DINING & ENTERTAINMENT -

Fine din­ing in Hawai‘i is an ele­gant meal that is the di­rect re­sult of a chef work­ing from fresh-off-the-farm pro­duce. Here, that com­bi­na­tion is known as Hawaii Re­gional Cui­sine, which com­bines the clas­sic tech­niques of Europe, the savvy style and so­phis­ti­ca­tion of Amer­i­can Re­gional Cui­sine, and the ex­otic in­gre­di­ents of the Pa­cific Rim. Peter Mer­ri­man, owner of Mer­ri­man’s restau­rant in Waimea, was among the orig­i­nal chefs in­volved in de­vel­op­ing Hawaii Re­gional Cui­sine.

At Kawai­hae Har­bor, Café Pesto and Seafood Bar & Grill serve great food in fun set­tings, as do Blue Dragon Restau­rant & Spa, which serves pro­duce from Hawi farms and fish from just across the street in Kawai­hae Bay.
