<p>  American Gi Forum</p> A South Omaha Best-Kept Secret

The unpretentious, homey American GI Forum restaurant at 2002 N Street is a Tex-Mex bargain whose popular specials make this a busy joint.

But unless you're a South Omahan or get tipped off to the place by someone, this best-kept-secret is likely to remain unknown outside its loyal following. After all, it has no website or Facebook page. You won't find ads for it anywhere. It's low profile is a shame, not because it starves for business – quite the opposite is true. But proceeds from this non-profit help support the activities of the veterans club under whose auspices and roof it operates.

The Omaha chapter of the American GI Forum, a national Hispanic veterans organization founded...

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...
