MauiTime Best of Maui BEST SEAFOOD: Honu Seafood & Pizza #BOM2012

Honu’s seafood style calls on foodie traditions from both mainland American coasts like shrimp po’boys and perfectly cooked seafood cocktails and reinvents them with Chef Mark Ellman’s flair. There are six different cocktails, including lobster, Dungeness crab and shrimp, as well as fried oyster sandwiches on fresh baked flax sweet breads and Ellman’s signature whole wok fried fish. Honu’s seafood menu is anything but pedestrian, and so close to the sea you might just get splashed. 1295 Front St., Lahaina; 808-667-9390;
