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,...

Eight Tips To Successful Grilling

This spring’s been warmer than usual, which means the grilling season began around Easter this year rather than the “official” start date of Memorial Day.
Whether you opt for charcoal, gas or use one of those hobo grills that run on newspaper, here are a few things to keep in mind this spring/summer when grilling:

None of which are good for you.

2.     Invest in some sheet pans....
