New Owner For Makawao Steak House

New Owner Hoku Nui Maui, plans to revamp Makawao Steak House into a farm-to-table restaurant.  The plan would be to use only grown meat and produce provided by the 258 acre “regenerative farming community”.

The company has already put in for a liquor license as well as for having live music at the restaurant. During the transition, new items are planned to slowly be added to the menu later in the year. The farm plans to add a number of new crops including fruits and vegetables. These items will eventually supply Makawao Steak House with farm fresh produce.  The restaurant’s plan is to serve what it can grow.

Fed Likely To Raise Interest Rates This Month

Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet L. Yellen, stated Friday that the Fed was likely to raise the benchmark interest rate this month.  This increased rate is coming sooner than expected.  The last benchmark rate increase occurred in December.  The rate was increased from .5 percent to .75 percent.

With healthy unemployment rates at 4.8 percent the Fed considers inflation rising back to 2 percent to be considered optimal.  Ms. Yellen expects further increases in upcoming years to maintain a neutral stance.
