If two heads are better than one, then two cuisine-noggins fused into one restaurant-body are better than one. Polycephalify your palate with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth Asian-American-Hawaiian fusion fare at Ilikai Bar & Grill, which is attached to the Ilikai Hotel overlooking the Waikiki Marina.
Ilikai Bar & Grill's executive chef, Mitchell Uyeno, has assembled a menu of upscale American favorites imbued with Asian and Hawaiian tastes. Grab a hold of the fluctuating flavors in steamed Asian mahimahi ($16), caught fresh from Ilikai’s freshwater backyard pond, or Cajun jerk chicken ($14), which is served with mango papaya salsa. An 8 or 12 oz. USDA choice cut filet mignon ($33-$39) top out the grill menu, which also includes a rack of lamb ($43) and a game hen with guava glaze and fruit salsa ($26). Colossal prawns with a rich cream sauce on a bed of linguini ($28) continually defeat catch of the day fish in the battle for seafood menu dominance. On Fridays, stop by for the Hula show and fireworks, starting at 5:30 p.m.
