Hotel: Element Midtown Crossing
Would I stay again? Yes! Central location to where I needed to be, many great restaurant options within walking distance and the hotel was clean and the staff were great!
Lunch: Stokin Goat
Would I dine again? Yes. It was close to one of my client meetings and my beet salad with fresh mozzarella was great.
Beet salad with fresh mozzarella and grilled salmon
Stokin goat menu
Would I dine again? Yes. I was able to walk here from the hotel, sit at the bar in the front window and enjoy my meal of spätzle with oxtail. Plus I found my breakfast spot for the next morning.
Breakfast: Early Bird
Would I dine again? Yes. It was right next to Stirnella so an easy walk before meetings to get some steps in! Loved my breakfast.
Egg White Scramble
Lunch: Via Farina
Would I dine again? Yes. Great spot close to the airport and downtown. The egg yolk raviolo was good but next time I would try a pizza.
I have something to share with you.
I have only been to Omaha a few times and unfortunately they always seem to be quick trips. I have one fantastic client there and met them for lunch this week before our scheduled meeting.
Pig & Finch Omaha
I was trying to find a great spot to eat near their office and I read about Pig & Finch. It was on OpenTable and I read that there was only one other location and that was in Kansas. Pig & Finch is a gastropub and the food was delicious and interesting at the same time. One of my guests ordered the flatbread on special that day, the other a lamb burger. Both looked delicious. I opted for a heavy option – Short Rib Mac & Cheese with a side salad(with grilled vegetables and lots of other great stuff) and a side of brussel sprouts sautéed with apples, red onion and bacon. It was an upscale, casual spot that would be great for client lunches or a date night! The 801 Restaurant Group has a bunch of steakhouses in some of the other cities I frequent. Looks like I may have a spot to try next time I visit St. Louis or Kansas City!
I have tried Grey Plume for happy hour and Mahogany Prime for dinner while in town for previous visits and remember enjoying both meals there.
Do you have a favorite spot I should try?
