Palm fronds and bamboo remain in the former Longitude space, now The Kon-Tiki from Christ Aivaliotis and Matthew Reagan. Sip Tiki cocktails from the ever-growing rum collection under a palapa or in a booth while filling up on chef Manuel Bonilla’s huge pupu platters.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: The Virgin’s Downfall is a vibrant choice for those who like a smoky whisper of mezcal with their demerara and coconut rums. The drink unfolds with chocolatey layers of crème de cacao and the sweet-minty-spiced-tart of Martinique shrubb, cinnamon, mint, grapefruit and honey.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: You can try a bit of everything on that pupu platter, but the sleeper hit on the menu is the burger: two hefty four-ounce beef patties slathered in pineapple Maui onion jam, American cheese, kewpie mayo and pickles on a sesame seed bun.
