Food Finds: Downtown

Cafe Julia

Stretching out inside Downtown Honolulu's YWCA, Café Julia is working out Hawai‘i's dining scene with international cuisine that caters to every palate. The simple-yet-chic outdoor dining experience will have you flexing your stomach muscles as you enjoy local and popular menu options from loco moco to osso buco.

New, award-winning chef Almar Arcano - formerly of Hy's Steakhouse - just joined the Café Julia team in April 2013 and is looking to add muscle to the menu with options such as lobster bisque, chowder and escargot, in addition to current favorites such as chicken marsala and "The Emerson" an unconventional salad topped with corn, balsamic vinegar and potato chips.

And good news for those looking for a late afternoon place to sip and siesta. Café Julia has brought back their popular pau hana (happy hour) from 4 - 6 p.m. on Sundays and Wednesday through Friday.
