“Eat Slowly”
Reviewed April 22, 2011

When you eat downtown, you sort of expect to compromise. You either pay too much or stuff hot garbage in your face, probably while standing up.

But Downtown is classy. it is interesting locally sourced food, with a menu that changes constantly. The restaurant is located at the Hawaii State Art Museum, with contemporary artwork on the walls.

There is counter service for those on-the-go, and the daily specials are a real treat.

One of the best spots to eat lunch in downtown. Tasty organic options — and sustainable utensils and plateware! — with decadent desserts perfect for stressful Mondays. Make reservations!
