Benson is buzzing with Lot2

When I moved to Omaha five years ago, I have to admit, Benson scared me a little bit. Lots of hole-in-the wall bars, and that crazy maternity shop with the world’s largest bra in the window. However, recently, Benson is buzzing. You can almost feel the tingling in the air – change is a brewing and new businesses are adding a light to the area. A major reason for that new glowing sensation is Lot 2 Restaurant and Wine Bar. Since its opening two months ago, I have heard people starting to talk about it more and more. It was time to see it for myself.

Walking in, you feel a sense of natural beauty to the restaurant. Its light walls and large window are balanced well with the dark wood of...

If you have never been, then you should go out of your way to Metropolitan Community Colleges' Sage Student Bistro on the Fort Campus (30th and Fort, Building 22). It was recently voted best overall restaurant in Nebraska by the users of OpenTable, an online reservation service with over 18,700 users. The Bistro also placed second in the overall food category and came in fourth for ambience.

Caribbean Delight-ful

Is it kar-uh-BEE-uhn or kuh-RIB-ee-an?

Let’s not worry about the pronunciation. Caribbean Delight is a smaller eatery and novelty shop, tucked away in a strip mall just north of 72nd and Blondo. The hip Benson strip, pulsing with art, booze, and a rash of new restaurants, is just a few blocks away.

But here, the food and atmosphere are just as interesting.

Inside, original folk art shares space on the walls with the occasional Red Stripe poster. One wall is devoted to the shop, where you can get a Jamaica swimsuit, a Bob Marley t-shirt, and yes, even a Rasta hat. Dueling televisions reported the news and reality TV headlines at first, but were later muted in favor of some reggae.

Given that food people work with farmers we thought this little tidbit fitting of crumbs.
