It's hard to resent chain restaurants when Outback can bring a chef like Roy Yamaguchi and his jeweled fusion of French polish and Asian flavors to our table. Love rack of lamb or Hawaiian fish? Roy's local partners do them up teak-brown, with orchids, breezy guitars and a happy crowd of casual big-spenders. Eat at the bar for clever sushi (or dinner) and get a bonus closeup of a smart kitchen crew. Aloha service, too.
