Awa'awa'puhi photo sphere

The Awa'awa'puhi trail descends to an overlook of the Na Pali coastline on the West shore of Kauai.  Although the hike itself isn't terribly exciting, the overlook at the end has some awesome views.  If you continue past the official overlook and the end-of-trail markers, along a dangerously narrow ridge with steep drop-offs on both sides, there's a spectacular 360-degree panorama of the surrounding Awa'awa'puhi and Nualolo valleys.

I hiked along the ridge about as far as it's feasible to go, then captured this photo sphere on my Nexus 4.

Working from the NYC office for a week. My 5D was broken, but I got a few shots on the Nexus 4.

Thanks +Derek Toye and +Albert Wong!  I may head back over that way again this afternoon, and see if we get lucky with these cloudy skies (since yesterday's photowalk @ Marshall beach got rained out).  :)

Cocktails and food were good, atmosphere was awesome. The entrance is on a sketchy alleyway, but you step inside to find a cool layout, live jazz, and an upscale feel. Great place to stop in for drinks, or to sit down and relax to the music while enjoying a nice meal.

Wow, this place completely took me by surprise! We were visiting some friends nearby, and wanted to grab a quick bite to eat within easy walking distance, so opted to try Ristorante Milano. It's in an unusual location (in a residental zone -- looks as though it used to be a first-floor apartment, maybe?) But what a great find! It's a cozy, intimate setting, great for date night. Seating is limited, but we lucked out and were seated immediately with no reservation on a Friday night. Our waiter was very attentive and prompt without feeling like he was constantly interrupting. All of the dishes were superb quality; and as other reviewers have stated, the gnocci was especially delicious. We left completely satisfied, and feeling like we'd found a "diamond in the rough" in this unusually-situated quaint Italian restaurant. Highly recommend!

Probably the best pizza place I've ever eaten, all considered. I've been here a few times, and each time I've quite literally been surprised at how good the pizza is. If you like thick crusts, their sicilian-style has just the right mixture of crispy and soft, and the slightly moist bread means it doesn't become a sponge like some sicilian pizzas do. I also tried a californian-style pizza on whole wheat crust, which was equally delicious. And for a more standard style of pizza, the "New Yorker" just melts in your mouth in a pool of meaty goodness. They also use a variety of ovens to suit the different pizzas & crust types: electric/gas, wood-fired, and coal-fired. The array of crust type, oven type, and topping options is broad, but without being overwhelming, and from what I've sampled so far, it's all equally delicious. I honestly can't think of anything that could be improved upon with the food here. The main drawback is that wait times here are RIDICULOUS -- if you go on an off day/time you might get lucky, but anywhere near peak hours, it's not uncommon to be told there's a 1.5 hour wait just to be seated. That said, I think they over-estimate a bit, since I've yet to actually have to wait quite that long (longest was around 50 minutes). But I have to say, it's well worth the wait.

Mostly traditional Vietnamese fare, but with a slightly Western bent, seemingly geared toward non-Vietnamese patrons. Food and service were excellent. Overall this feels like a very solid neighborhood restaurant, and I'll probably be back again some time.

Opens up to the bowling alley next door. The food here was actually pretty good, but service was lacking (we had to wait quite a while to get our orders taken, and longer still for food), and the atmosphere is pretty grungy, due to the bowling alley. Could be worse, and the food quality is a redeeming factor, but there are definitely better places to be found nearby.

Excellent up-scale restaurant for a special occasion. We tried several of the house cocktails, all of which were well-prepared and delicious. Appetizers had a wide variety of flavors to suit different tastes. We then moved on to quail for the first course: excellent. Main dish was filet mignon, accompanied by spinach ravioli, and a scrumptious sauce that gave me a mouth orgasm. We then tried a couple of tasty treats for dessert -- again, no disappointments -- and finished with a flight of dessert wines that perfectly wrapped up this phenomenal meal. All in all, a fantastic meal and excellent service, in a very classy setting. But then, at $250 - $300 for dinner for two, it better be!

Well it's certainly not "authentic" Chinese food, but so what? It's good! We had a delicious dinner here, enjoyed the setting / atmosphere inside (which feels like a departure from the rest of the Marina outside), and left very satisfied. Will definitely be back.
