"East Meets West: They Party." So goes the tagline at Kona Grill, one of 20 restaurants in this nationwide chain, the latest of which has moved into CityPlace. Unfortunately, the fateful meeting is more like a train wreck than a party. When Asian fusion collides with Southwest flavors and ingredients, you get dishes like an avocado egg roll ($9.75), where hunks of avocado flesh are stuffed, along with strips of sun-dried tomato and chopped red onion, into a wonton skin and deep-fried. Dip this mess into the honey-cilantro sauce provided and you've got an airtight argument against multiculturalism. These delicacies are available for half price at happy hour and reverse happy hour daily (3 to 7 p.m., and two hours before closing, nightly), which may make them marginally more palatable.
