ABC's Yunji de Nies keeps tabs on the Obamas' posh vacation:
President Obama and the first lady enjoyed a night out with friends, with a leisurely three-hour dinner at Alan Wong’s Restaurant. The upscale eatery specializes in Hawaiian Regional Cuisine and is a favorite of the first couple.Keith Koffler speculates on the menu, but the word on Twitter is that they're, well, eating butter.

Two years ago, Wong traveled to Washington to prepare a luau at the White House Congressional picnic. The Obamas regularly dine at the Honolulu restaurant while on vacation and on Wednesday night sat at their usual table, with the president seated with his back to the wall – in what Wong has described as the “Feng Shui” seat in the restaurant.
The group ordered off of a special tasting menu, though no word on what that entailed.
I'll update when I get all the greasy details. Meanwhile, FORE!
