Bill Granger, owner of bills Sydney, has restaurants in Australia, the U.K., and Japan. This Australian celebrity chef opened his first restaurant when he was just 22 years of age. He recently opened a new “bills” restaurant on Oahu, which is the first U.S. location. Dubbed as the “egg master of Sydney” by the New York Times, he has brought his take on “barefoot-from-the-beach” dining concept to the tourist mecca of Hawaii known as Waikiki.
Tucky & Bevvy is an accidental new favorite of mine. Why accidental? After a visit to the Waikiki Aquarium, we were eager to find a spot that we could walk to for a quick lunch. A quick Yelp search suggested Tiki’s Bar & Grill, which is located in the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel, and overlooks Kuhio Beach. As we made our way to Tiki’s, I spotted a sign that read Tucker & Bevvy, on the corner of Kalakaua Avenue and & Kapahulu Avenue. I pointed to the Tucker & Bevvy sign, and asked “want to try that place out instead?” To which she replied, “sure, let’s go there.”
