Dash Gastropub
1018 McCully St., Honolulu
Phone number (808) 943-1025

Many might think that unique beers are the highlight of Dash Gastropub’s allure, but you’d be wrong. While the alcohol flows smoothly, the food menu is something worth checking out. Pupu-style eats have Asian-inspired elements that mix well with American favorites such as bacon. Dishes are meant to share, but if you’re feeling selfish, that’s OK, too. Wonderful, artistic presentations embody each unique dish, making them almost too beautiful to eat. But come on, we know you’ll mop up whatever’s on the plate set in front of you.


JJ’s Bistro and French Pastry
3447 Waialae Ave., Honolulu
Phone number (808) 739-0993

Serving up Asian-inspired dishes with classic French influence, JJ’s Bistro and French Pastry is a fusion delight. As soon as you walk in the door, you’re greeted by JJ’s tantalizing display of delicate, delectable pastries like the Frou Frou Au Chocolat, the Chocolate Lilikoi and the Lady in Red Guava Bavarian (pictured). It might be tough, but try not to spoil your appetite, because the menu features an equally appealing selection of soups and salads, pastas, pizzas and more. One thing that it’s become particularly known for is its set menus, which provide a multi-course tour through a selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts.
