Steakhouse Tradition Going Strong at Brother Sebastian’s

Eating at Brother Sebastian’s is like taking a trip back in time to Omaha’s past. I mean that in the nicest possible way.

 

If you are of a certain age, you might recall the restaurants that once dominated the local dining scene. Lengthy menus offered numerous versions of steak. Entrees came with multiple side dishes, and the dining rooms were dark and woody.

 

Brother Sebastian’s Steak House & Winery proudly upholds that heritage. It opened in 1977, and has been following a successful formula ever since.

 

I first visited Brother Sebastian’s for my high school senior prom in the ‘80s, and was interested to return and see how the place was holding up in a changing world.

SNAP Benefits Success at Farmer’s Markets

The end of farmers market season marked the beginning of a food revolution in Omaha. For the first time people receiving SNAP benefits, formerly known as Food Stamps, could use those benefits to purchase fresh, local food at three Omaha Farmers Markets.

“We didn’t have any numbers in mind when we started the program, but we definitely exceeded our expectations,” said Heidi Walz co-project manager for the Omaha Farmers Market. “Our vendors were very pleased with it. They felt like it increased sales, brought in new customers and they were very happy simply from the mission perspective of getting fresh food those who need it most.”

Approximately 70,000 people per month in Douglas and...

<p>  Building Front Final Caption </p> <p>  The building, roughly 100 years old, will be able to seat about 90 people, roughly double the size of Dixie Quick's former location at 19th and Leavenworth.</p> Bluffs Bound

The last Sunday brunch at Dixie Quick's "blink and you'll miss it" location at 19th and Leavenworth felt mostly nostalgia-free. Overheard conversations focused more on movies and irritating co-workers and less on how this would be the last time people would be eating French toast with sexual chocolate in Nebraska. A father ordered his son to sit in his chair. And when a few customers were paying their bills, they said they would see the wait staff at their new location, as if the restaurant would be a few blocks away.

Todd and Mimi Buswell walked outside  after breakfast and both expressed indifference at having to go to a new location for brunch.

"As long as it's open, I'm there,"...
