P AI is a not a big place, with seating for just 34 people at a time, but it never feels stuffed. Just cozy. This downtown Honolulu restaurant offers intimate, world-class dining experiences you can enjoy with or without reservations. It opened this June in Harbor Court tower and has blossomed into Honolulu's new best culinary hotspot by fusing several international cuisines and showing its guests a good time in its wood-paneled space. Flavors from around the world dominate the tightly edited tasting menus at PAI -- think truffles from Australia on a Japanese egg custard, washed down with perfectly paired French Champagne -- but you don't have to shell out $135 to sample the restaurant's offerings.
PAI divides its fine dining experiences into three very different options, from an informal night out, to a structured culinary experience guided by the executive chef and owner himself. Here's what you should know before you go.
