Honolulu's Chef Mavro restaurant at 1969 So. King St. is again among the Top 40 restaurants in the U.S., according to Gayot.com, the magazine-turned-online culinary guide.
"Chef Mavro hopes for this honor each year because Gayot's focus (is) on the cuisine," said Donna Jung, publicist for and wife of chef, restaurateur and James Beard Award winner George Mavrothalassitis, for whom the fine-dining venue is named.
Chef Mavro is among rarefied air, sharing the elite ranking with internationally renowned restaurants such as Spago in Beverly Hills, Calif., The French Laundry in Yountville, Calif., and Le Cirque in New York City.
