Alan Wong's HONOLULU

President Barack Obama hit the town in Honolulu Wednesday night for a leisurely dinner with friends and family at one of his favorite island restaurants. Onlookers waited patiently outside Alan Wong's Restaurant for three hours, hoping to catch a glimpse of the president, the first lady and the rest of their party. The award-winning eatery is in the same neighborhood where Obama grew up, and the president's motorcade passed the Honolulu apartment where he once lived with his late grandmother and the Baskin Robbins ice cream shop where he worked as a teenager. Wong is a favorite of the Obamas. They've dined at his flagship restaurant here several times, including last December, and also invited Wong to cater a luau at the White House. - JULIE PACE
