A number of designy-foodie types in Honolulu recommended the restaurant Morimoto to me before I even realized that it was in my hotel. Much less that Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto was behind it. I had sushi one evening and it was wonderfully fresh. The space itself can't quite shake that hotel razzle-dazzle that afflicts so much hospitality design, but I suppose one does want to put on something of a show for the out-of-towners.
