Eat Beside Quiora's Breathtaking Views of Waikiki

March 17, 2020 by Mari Taketa

It’s a view you’ve likely never seen before: Waikiki at sunset viewed over treetops that stretch nearly to the ocean from the seventh floor of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach. Quiora, the Italian eatery in the ultra-posh new Diamond Head tower, occupies a primo patio space open to the trades and an uncrowded view of twinkling lights in distant towers. Quiora means “here and now,” explains head toque Shaymus Alwin, who hails most recently from Azure at the Royal Hawaiian; it’s a reference to the end of the day when his family gathered around the table. Standouts are zesty Calabrian shrimp, pillowy soft burrata with tomato jam, hearty osso bucco and porchetta, whole grilled fish with charred lemon, and a decadent bone-in steak. And the pastas! Everyone, from wide pappardelle ribbons to velvety agnolotti, is made by hand (the only exception is the orecchetti in the carbonara); indulging in at least one is an absolute must. 383 Kalaimoku St., Waikiki, 729.9757, ritzcarlton.com
