Twenty-eight day wet-aged steaks are the star at the new Signature Steak & Seafood restaurant at the top of the Ala Moana Hotel. This is the 22-ounce prime bone-in ribeye.
Signature Steak & Seafood is open from 4:30 to 10:30 p.m. Mondays to Saturdays, and 4:30 to 10 p.m. Sundays. Call 808.949.3636.
The view from the 36th floor of the restaurant, at the top of the Ala Moana Hotel, is also a major attraction. This was the true color of the sunset on July 6.
More steak: The 24-ounce porterhouse, with a few slices missing due to an overly anxious diner.
For balance, a spinach salad with tomatoes, bacon bits and walnuts.
Ahi tartare is one of the dishes on The Signature's Happy Hour bar menu, available 4 to 6:30 p.m. daily, when dishes off the bar menu are offered at 50 percent off.

The Signature Seafood Tower features a Maine lobster tail and two claws, jumbo shrimp, sliced New England sea Scallop and oysters on the half shell, at $49.95 as of today.
Thai-inspired crispy fried calamari drizzled with sweet chili sauce.
The Shake serves as drink or dessert, an adult update of the chocolate shake made with Absolute Vanilla, Kahlua, Godiva chocolate liqueur and vanilla ice cream, topped with chopped macadamia nuts and cinnamon.
Cajun shrimp is one of the dishes in development.
