For crab lovers
Sam Choy's Breakfast Lunch and Crab is hosting a Crab Festival tomorrow through next Sunday, with lunch and dinner specials featuring the crustacean in many forms.
Along with crab cakes, Garlic Roasted Dungeness Crab Cluster, Bumbucha King Crab Legs, Asian Crab Bouillabaisse and a Soft Shell Po' boy, specials include crab in tempura, spring rolls, pizza, poke, bisque, fried rice -- and for purists, a bucket of blue, snow and Dungeness crab.

Steak 'n' more
Ruth's Chris Steak House restaurants have introduced a three-course "Sizzlin' Prime Time Dinner" menu.
For a set price of $39.95, diners have a first-course choice of Caesar, Steak House or spinach salad; entree choice of petite filet, 12-ounce rib eye, fish special, veal chop or broiled chicken breast; and dessert of ice cream, sorbet or bread pudding.
Oahu restaurants are in Restaurant Row and Waikiki Beach Walk; neighbor island locations are in Lahaina and the Shops at Wailea on Maui and the Shops at Mauna Lani on the Big Island.
The Alana Bistro at Doubletree Alana Hotel has introduced a made-to-order pasta buffet on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
If that sounds like a contradiction in terms, here's the idea: Diners choose from more than 25 ingredients on a buffet that are then cooked up on the spot.
Cost is $13.95 and $8.95 children -- and includes garlic bread and green salad.
