500BestSquareGrilled Hawaiian Spearfish, Beans, Mushrooms @ Lilette

DishStars-4
Among the very few downsides of having great local seafood is that we don’t get as much exotic fish as, say, New York or San Francisco restaurants. John Harris has a history of using visiting fish, particularly from the Pacific Ocean, and here’s a great example of that. Interesting species over the Aloha land, beyond mahi-mahi. I haven’t seen the same one twice–another hallmark of the chef’s curiosity. I would say that fish is the most exciting food they cook here.
