Town Restaurant Review

: Town continues to live up to its motto of "Local first, organic whenever possible, with aloha always." The subtle flair and the care of Town's chef/owner Ed Kenney and his team has allowed this restaurant to become what they dreamed of when they started out: a neighborhood spot where people could drop in any time of the day and eat well. You can sit outside with dog owners and eat a breakfast of gently poached eggs served with braised greens, raisins, pine nuts and pancetta over a golden fried slab of polenta or have the famous burger with shoestring-style french fries for lunch. Then stop by for a dinner of pillow soft gnocchi (only 12 orders per night) and slow-cooked pork shoulder. Our favorite time to visit is in the late afternoon when we like to sit at the bar, have a bottle of Hawaiian beer with an order of the fries and a bowl of the house-made grapefruit-Campari sorbet. Artwork changes frequently, and the bistro-style layout of the restaurant encourages up-close conversation with your dining partners. The wine list also exudes character --- small, boutique vineyards are featured with many options available by the glass --- and you'll find fresh local fruit and grapes in the sangria and lavender from the chef's garden in the Town Collins.
