Tokyo-born Roy Yamaguchi, whose first restaurant jobs were cooking French food in Los Angeles, didn't invent fusion cuisine, but he took it far and wide — there are now roughly 30 Roy's Restaurants in eight states — increasingly grafting multicultural Hawaiian influences onto the European-style training and Asian ingredients he's been working with for years. There are six Roy's locations in Hawaii, with slightly different menus. Many Roy's fans prefer the Waikiki iteration. The big attraction here is the glistening fresh local fish, served as sushi and sashimi and in such dishes as macadamia-crusted opah, Hawaiian style misoyaki butterfish, and Hawaiian kampachi with cauliflower purée and roasted kale.
