A popular new Waikiki restaurant in the International Market Place voluntarily closed today due to suspected norovirus, Department of Health spokeswoman Janice Okubo told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Thursday night.

Hawaii News Now said three diners had fallen ill.

Okubo said DOH staff has been working with the restaurant, but restaurant management decided to close to conduct a cleanup.

Laboratory tests are still pending, Okubo said.

Herringbone said in a statement it was working closely with the DOH. The restaurant was hoping to reopen today, according to an HNN report.

A restaurant spokesman could not be reached for comment.
