Humuhumu’s description:
Owned by David & Anna Chan -- David was head bartender at the Washington, D.C. Trader Vic's during the 70s, and he and Anna opened Honolulu Restaurant in 1978. Honolulu closed on April 10, 2004 (coincidentally, Martin Denny's 93rd birthday) when an expansion project on a nearby bridge forced its closure.

David & Anna have launched a new line of products from their Honolulu Restaurant, called "Dave & Anna's Signature Blends." These products, and some memories from Honolulu Restaurant, are at their new website, time2tiki.com.

I got the chance to go there a handful of times before they closed. They had the best General Tso's I've ever had. And I've had it in over 20 states.
Lucky the Painproof Man was a semi-regular at Honolulu Restaurant.

The Honolulu was the only true, full bore Tiki place I got to enjoy in DC. In many ways it was a Trader Vic's for those of us who did not have expense accounts;) The decor and vibe were wonderful. It's been 10 years since the closing and I still think about the place often.
