Sommelier on a Mission

Let’s be honest here – we all know that Omaha has an amazing restaurant scene. This is no secret to us, and apparently word is spreading because people outside of Omaha are hearing it too. Enter Jennifer Moleski, a restaurant industry consultant who uses her years as a sommelier and trainer to help restaurant service teams figure out how to be great.

Jennifer started a tour last month that is taking her all around the nation in a quest to visit with the best restaurants and see what makes their service teams tick. So, of course, she wound up in Omaha and visited with four of our best eateries to add to her ongoing blogumentary. She spent one shift with the service team of each restaurant...

Worth the Drive

As Omahans, we are pretty lucky to live in an area that has an ample amount of great dining options. From The Surfside Club to Lot 2, Omaha has a variety of restaurants to suit any budget or desire. But what happens when we head out on summer vacation? Where do we eat? Wouldn’t it be nice if there was someone who could do some food research for you before you left?  

How often do you check Urbanspoon or Yelp for dining spots when you are travelling to Colorado with the kids? Or when you are driving to Kansas City for a Royals game? Or how about someplace worth driving to where you can explore the area and have a good meal? If you are like me - someone who appreciates good food at...

Star Deli

First things first: Star Deli in Benson is not the same Star Deli that was in the Jewish Community Center in Omaha. I figured this out quickly when I first walked into Benson’s Star Deli and didn’t see matzo ball soup on the menu. I guess I was confused because for whatever reason I was under the impression that this was the same place. I asked the guy at the counter and he responded with a quick, “No, ma’am,” which was in a tone that indicated he’d responded to this question before.

I had walked in expecting to indulge in the same types of food I devour when I visit my Jewish family in Los Angeles, but had to switch gears and instead check out what the Star Deli menu had to offer. It’s...
