Onomea: Hawaiian Comes to Williamsburg

By Justin Hartung
August 13, 2013

The already hoppin' intersection of Havemeyer and Metropolitan just got another new restaurant, and, what do you know, it's not another farm-to-table New American. Hawaiian cuisine is sorely underrepresented in New York, and new Williamsburg spot Onomea hopes the rectify that. The name translates to "delicious," and the menu aspires to live up to that moniker with traditional Aloha State dishes like poke, kalua pork and, yup, Spam musubi (basically, a sushi roll stuffed with everyone's favorite canned meat). The cozy decor includes a ceiling lined with shipping crates, plus cool backlit strips of island-themed photos. Do note: there's no liquor license yet, but it's in the works.

84 Havemeyer St., Brooklyn; open Tuesday-Sunday; cash only
