Looking for the best food at the CWS…

The College World Series has turned Omaha into the place to be and a place to eat for two weeks in June. With the second year in its new home at the TDAmeritrade Park, the city and visitors look to be loving it. And everywhere I looked people were eating.  I am a CWS newbie and have only heard stories of what the CWS was like around Rosenblatt so I can only imagine. But I can tell you what the CWS looks like now, in the north end of downtown. The tradition is very strong, the food booths are a plenty and I was excited to be there.

Review of J.Coco

I was conflicted with the news that Jennifer Coco would be leaving the The Flat Iron Cafe to start her own restaurant, J. Coco. At first I was excited to try the new dining experience and enjoy her cuisine, however then I became nervous – what if it wasn’t up to the culinary level of The Flat Iron? What if she couldn’t execute her new dishes in the same way she used to do? We recently dined at The Flat Iron and it still is one of my favorite upscale restaurants in Omaha. How would J. Coco compare?

Well, Jennifer Coco, you can rest assured that you are living up to your reputation. You alleviated my fears not once, but twice now and I’m excited to add you to my list of favorite dining...

Events like Elevate make Omaha great.

Events like Elevate make Omaha great.

Held on the 36th street bridge, over looking the 1-80 corridor within sight of the newly designed grain elevators whose theme this year was based on transportation, Elevate was the collaboration of chef, designer and farmer whom together designed a communal space paired it with an artistic menu that together created a unique festive eating experience.

This unique eating experience was conceptualized through Emerging Terrain, a non-profit research and design collaborative, whose focus for such an event is to reconnect the public with the landscapes that have been created around us. The focus is to not let oneself take for granted the farms,...
