D.K. Steakhouse Restaurant Review: D.K. Kodama's restaurant empire continues to grow. Making his name with new wave sushi and sweet, saucy Hawaiian Regional cuisine, he has done a lot of research and has proven a good student. With Italian (Vino) and high-end contemporary (Hiroshi Eurasion Tapas) covered, he's also in the beef business. D.K. Steakhouse, adjacent to Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar, is keeping the Marriott's parking garage perpetually full. On the menu are all the requisite cuts from grain-fed Midwestern beef (hopefully one day he'll go local and supply grass-fed Big Island bounty). The rib-eye is dry-aged; other cuts are wet-aged. In a town where the most popular steakhouses are chains (Ruth's Chris, Morton's and Outback), D.K. is a refreshing indie change, with sides that go beyond the usual scalloped potatoes and beefsteak tomatoes with asparagus Milanese, sautéed Maui onions and ahi sashimi --- this is Hawaii after all.
