Chef Ravi Kapur, from Hawaii via Boulevard and Prospect, works magic in the open kitchen at Liholiho, turning out umami-rich dishes like tongue, kimchi and pickles in a poppy seed–encrusted bun, or beef carpaccio and crispy fried oysters. They sing with the eclectic wine list, rich in classic aromatic whites from Italy, Germany and Alsace, as well as esoterica like Ravines Riesling from the Finger Lakes, Sandlands Trousseau from Sonoma and Eszterbauer Kadarka from Hungary
