The restaurant is on Beachwalk Avenue, around the corner from Hard Rock Cafe, and it's a two-story, 8,450-square-foot beauty, the work of Australian restaurateur, cookbook author and TV host Bill Granger and Japan partners, who imagined his laid-back Aussie approach to food and drink would mesh well with Waikiki's beach-to-bar vibe.</span></p>
