Long since known as one of Honolulu’s finest dining experiences, Chef Mavro is helmed by James Beard Award-winning chef George Mavrothalassitis. (And with a last name like that you can understand why he uses his nickname.) Just a five-minute drive north of Waikiki Beach, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant is located at 1969 S. King St. on the beautiful island of Oahu. Don’t be fooled by the lackluster exterior of Chef Mavro; the food is out of this world. A true master of French cooking, Mavro serves up dishes that sit at the very crossroads of French and Hawaiian cuisine. Many traditional French cooking techniques are used to prepare the fresh Hawaiian ingredients that make an excellent complement to the restaurant’s tropical setting.
