Coming Attractions at Taste

Rainbow Drive-In 2.0

What happens when a local institution meets an experimental concept? Rainbow Drive-In 2.0, a one-night event with riffs on Rainbow’s most popular dishes. The mix plate—chicken, fish and beef—gets deconstructed, the slush float elevated with gelato and sorbet. They haven’t nailed down a date for this yet; check tastetable.com for updates on Taste’s schedule.

Like the other young business owners in Kakaako, Corby dreams big. For the next quarter, it’s chef collaborations and cooking classes in addition to the rotating restaurants. But pie in the sky? Taste would have a commercial kitchen space that food vendors could rent, a café in the front, a brewery in the back. It’d have a culinary garden and students working side by side with chefs.

Ultimately, however, the future of Taste, like many other businesses in Kamehameha Schools’ Kakaako properties, is uncertain. With redevelopment, Taste could move into a new space, or it could just close up shop, as temporary as the pop-ups that pass through it.
