The NorthPark outlet of the Arizona-based East-meets-West chain has a see-and-be-seen patio that seems to be bustling from open to close. You might try sitting at the bar with its 2,000-gallon aquarium backdrop. Either way, request Kona's signature dish, the Macadamia nut chicken, or sushi rolls with fusion creations such as the Big Island meatloaf and the bubblegum saketini. There is a dedicated vegan menu, but it must be requested from the host station. Sushi-roll fanatics can take advantage of select half-price items on Sundays.
