Lunch in Honolulu before getting on the plane, “Hawaiian Air” to Seattle.
If you have not eaten at Ruscello inside Nordstrom, you need to try it. There is even a wonderful outside area…
It was busy, so we sat at the bar and watched everyone as we ate….
Mediterranean Hummus house made, delicious.
Crispy Panko Chicken Salad – organic baby greens, romaine lettuce, bacon, egg, avocado, tomatoes, grilled corn, honey Dijon dressing.
Chicken Club with Maple Glazed Bacon – avocado, tomato, organic baby greens, peppercorn aioli, toasted country bread.
As a big fan of all those mentioned in this article, I wanted to be sure you had a chance to read up on the food scene in Hawaii.

What was once “down and dirty” now hosts 15 events and 80 chefs from as far away as New Zealand, Korea and New York City (like Christina Tosi from Momofuku Milk Bar). It’s like the food version of ComiCon.
But something more was at work here. Cooking alongside star chefs were Hawaii’s new wave of culinary game-changers like Ed Kenney, Leanne Wong, and husband and wife team Mark “Gooch” Noguchi and Amanda Corby — local cooks and food activists with new eating establishments (TOWN, Superette, The Mission, Koko Head Cafe) who want to take Hawaiian cuisine back to its roots.
