The Feast at Lele Restaurant Review

: Most luaus are fairly standard buffets --- and include such ersatz Hawaiian fare as fried chicken. The Feast at Lele puts a gourmet spin on things with a sit-down dinner at individual tables and a high-profile chef: James McDonald of Pacific'O restaurant. The food is a multi-course culinary tour of Polynesia, including dishes like slow-roasted kalu'a pork and pohole fern from Hawai'i or sea bean duck salad with poha berry dressing from New Zealand. Dessert comes in the form of a sampler platter, which includes caramel-macadamia nut tart with haupia and Hawaiian vintage chocolate truffles. And, of course, there's a show, which also cruises the islands, climaxing with a vivid Samoan fire knife dance. It comes at a price ($115 plus tax and gratuity for adults), but what a creative leap from the usual Waikiki whirl.
