An eye for the accessible and a true passion for letting people and food come as they are settles The French Bulldog into its Dundee home.

The highly anticipated neighborhood restaurant and deli opens this Saturday, Sept. 8th at 50th and Underwood streets. It came to fruition over many months of casual conversations and chance meetings between Amsterdam Falafel and Kabab owners  Anne Cavanaugh and Phil Anania, and Chef Bryce Coulton, formerly of Pitch and the Boiler Room.

Coulton has made a name for himself amid the Omaha dining scene due to his skills and passion for charcuterie. It was during a culinary program at the Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland that he learned to truly...

Roll into Ponzu

It’s all about the neighborhood.

When Jimi D’s Food & Spirits opened four years ago, owner Jimi DiPrima didn’t have big culinary dreams or a snooty design scheme. He just wanted to make it thee neighborhood spot.

Four years and a lot of pints of draft beer later – Jimi D’s pours the most Stella Artois in Nebraska – DiPrima’s first restaurant has become a neighborhood favorite, filled with familiar faces on any given day or night. 

It was the passion for all things sushi that led DiPrima to open his second restaurant, Ponzu Sushi & Grill, earlier this year. With work experience at Blue Sushi in the Old Market, he wanted to bring the cuisine to Aksarben.

Though the name comes from a...

An Omaha Classic Stands the Test of Time

I am a New York Italian girl. I grew up with my grandmother living in my house and Sunday afternoon pasta dinners. At 1 pm, every Sunday, we gathered together to eat baked ziti, spaghetti and meatballs, or eggplant parmigiana. Some Sundays, my grandmother would even cook all three. So when I moved to Omaha five years ago and looked for a solid authentic Italian restaurant, I was thrilled to find Lo Sole Mio. I remember my first experience there – the large bottles of olive oil on the table, and the random statues of half-naked people scattered among the rooms. I felt at home. That’s the beauty of Lo Sole Mio, you feel as if you have stepped into a little old Italian woman’s house. All it...
