Twisted Cork: Stunning Flavors, Cozy Ambiance

Let me make your first visit to the Twisted Cork a little easier with this tip: the Tavern is to the left, and the Bistro is to the right. They’re both a part of the Twisted Cork, but they aren’t the same thing.

I hope I didn’t just confuse you.

I went to the right when I visited the Twisted Cork because I was looking for the full Bistro experience. A friend of mine had told me that this was the place to go for some really great seafood, and I managed to get my husband to accompany me by letting him know that the Twisted Cork Burger was voted the best burger in Nebraska by Food Network Magazine. Great seafood for me and a juicy burger for him; it’s the perfect date night.

Hiro 88: A Formula for Success

With all the new restaurants popping up in Omaha, it’s important to remember the amazing ones that have sustained the test of time. Hiro 88 in West Omaha was the first Asian restaurant I ate at when I moved to Omaha over five years ago and the excitement it ignited then has not dampened today. I am a regular here and have my favorites. However, for this visit, I decided to pretend as if I was a newly landed resident to Omaha and order dishes that I have never tried before. I wanted to experience it all for the first time…again.

I always tell people who don’t eat sushi to try Hiro. You will be amazed at the creations they make – some with even cooked seafood and meats for those hesitant...

Chat with Corner Creperie

There are a few places in town to order crepes, but none as dedicated to the French-style stuffed pancake as this brand new space near the Creighton campus. Over my caramel latte – crafted with house-made syrup and beans from Omaha roasters A Hill of Beans – I spoke with Head Chef Chase Grove and owners Didi and Derek Olsen for the scoop.

Tell us a bit about your culinary background. How did you get started in the restaurant industry? 

Chase: I went to the Institute for Culinary Arts at Metro Community College, straight out of high school. I was able to travel a lot doing what we call stagiaire, which is going around to different places, in the city or regionally, and spending some...
