The French Connection

Taste of Omaha will have a dizzying array of food available to sample, but there’s one eatery presenting food that under no circumstances do you want to miss: Le Petit Paris – French Bakery. 

“We are here to offer a trip to France without a passport,” says Cedric Fichepain, owner of Le Petit Paris – French Bakery and Le Voltaire restaurant.

The bakery opened in October of last year and has proven to be a perfect complement to Fichepain’s restaurant. At Le Petit Paris, French equipment and skilled bakers combine with American ingredients to offer diners authentic French baked goods including pastries, croissants and baguettes.

Welcome to France

“We are trying to really show off what you...

Help Fund Localmotive’s Return

If you’re wondering whatever happened to the popular food truck Localmotive, it was a blown engine that was to blame for their abrupt halt to business. They’re trying to make a comeback though, and this time they’re turning to the generosity of their fans. Support Localmotive via their Kickstarter campaign from now until June 26. They hope to raise $40,000 so they can once again satisfy the late-night appetites of Old Market dwellers. http://kickstarter.com/profile/localmotive

Espana

If you know me well, you know me as clever, charismatic, and not even a little bit awkward. I’ll pause for the collective eye rolls from my dearest friends, co-workers, and boyfriend.

But every now and then, even I feel the need to turn off the charm and just allow myself to relax and be entertained while dining out. This leaves me to make a difficult decision - do I shell out the dollars for a beautiful meal while settling for the sounds of the couple at a neighboring table breaking up as my sole means of cultural stimulation? Do I huddle on an Old Market corner over my Nachos Bell Grande while taking in the talents of a troubadour?

I do not, my friends. Instead, I search the city for...

Dragon Cafe

When I try out a new place that I don’t know much about I usually go into what I call Vague Mode. This is where I don’t go into it anticipating any particular experience and I don’t decide beforehand what I’m going to eat. I just waltz in and make a vague statement to the server and whatever happens with my meal happens.

Vague Mode can be surprisingly exciting.

So when I went to Dragon Cafe in La Vista and the waitress asked me what I wanted to eat, I waved at the menu vaguely and said, “Well, I like chicken…” and waited to see what would happen. She suggested the General Tao’s Chicken, which I went ahead and ordered accompanied by fried rice and egg drop soup. Then I sat and waited to be...
