THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Moutarde Restaurant Review

: Part of Honolulu's slew of island-style bistros, Moutarde joins the Kaimuki's restaurant row, serving a mix of French classics (onion soup, côte de veau Milanaise) with some local touches (poke, taro-crusted basa) to create a come-any-time casual spot. Sharing owners with next-door long-established company Kahala Caterers, Moutarde's principal partner, Mitch Ueno, is a Francophile married to a French-Tahitian woman. That explains nightly specials like bouillabaisse---half a Maine lobster, scallops, clams, and mahi mahi swimming in a light saffron broth. Duck breast is nicely smoky-sweet with a crust of Kona coffee and ground macadamia nuts. The airy quasi-industrial space also serves breakfast (eggs with Portuguese sausage) and lunch (Philly steak sandwich, quiche). But for some français flavor, come for dinner. Buy a bottle at Tamura's around the corner---Moutarde is BYOB. The honest, affordable cooking won't blow your mind, but it always satisfies, like all good bistros from Paris to Manhattan.
