Missing Marks Love

The necessity of trying their famous “mac-n-cheese” first brought me to Marks Bistro almost six years ago. After trying their steak variation, I was hooked.  It was like a cheesesteak (without the bread) in your mouth – flavorful meat and four different cheeses melting together to form a perfect union. It was one of my first loves moving to Omaha.

So when I had heard that the restaurant had made three chef changes in the past year, I wanted to check in. Their current chef, Zeb Rogers previously worked at the Paxton Chophouse as well as the now closed Loft 610, and has been with Marks since August.

Founder Mark Pluhacek credits Rogers with helping the restaurant finish one of its best...

<p>  The Tea Smith</p> It’s a Tea Party

A new year is nearly upon us, and after a long evening of celebration and festivities, it will be time to put the fancy champagne glasses back in the cupboard for yet another twelve months. Trade them in for more appropriate vessels—ceramic mugs or dainty teacups—to use while celebrating National Hot Tea Month this January.

Cold and flu season has officially begun, making mid-winter the perfect time of year to introduce hot tea into the diet. Research has indicated that drinking tea, even as little as one cuppa’ day, aids the immune system in its daily war against bacteria, microorganisms and viruses. Tea, the second most consumed beverage in the world after water, also boasts health...

<p>  Blanc Burgers + Bottles</p> Kid-Friendly Without The Crayons

When I was pregnant, I was amazed and frightened by how many people told me that I should go out as much as possible now because once the baby was born, there wouldn’t be any time to eat out or try new restaurants.  So when my daughter was born, I made a firm decision that she was going to learn how to eat out and not just at places that had kids’ menus. With that in mind, I started testing out restaurants in the Omaha area to see what places were kid-friendly, but not necessarily kid-oriented. Where can I bring my child to that doesn’t only serve chicken fingers and fries? 

With my three year old daughter in tow, the first place I looked was Blanc Burgers & Bottles at Midtown Crossing....
