Crumbs:  Season of Changes

Dante Adds Manager to Expand Wine and Spirits Offerings

Dante Pizzeria Napoletana has added Andy Wood to its management team as wine and spirits director. Wood will focus on further developing the already unique all-Italian wine list.  He will also expand the distinctive cocktail selections. “We’re pleased to add Andy to the Dante management team. His knowledge of wine and spirits will be a great benefit in expanding our selections while staying true to our Italian culinary focus,” said Dante chef/owner Nick Strawhecker. Dante Pizzeria Napoletana will participate in the upcoming Omaha Restaurant Week. It is located in The Shops of Legacy at 168th & Center. For more information visit dantepizzeria.com

Tommy Colina’s Kitchen Offers Extended Hours

Now offering dinner service five nights a week, Tommy Colina’s Kitchen in midtown now opens for dinner Tuesday – Saturday until 9 p.m. Locally owned and operated, the eatery delivers casual fare with a chef-driven menu.  Offering breakfast-only brunch on the weekend, fresh chicken breast sandwiches and fresh ground daily steak burgers. Located in Midtown Omaha at 35th and Farnam. Call 402.502.9027 or visit tommycolinaskitchen.com   

Corporate Steakhouse Wars

Corporate steakhouses have been relatively quiet until recently when Longhorn Steakhouse announced plans to double its unit count over the next few years. Days later, Outback Steakhouse gave away one million steak dinners as a marketing campaign. Longhorn Steakhouse lists only one metro location on its website, but has two more locations under construction in Omaha. The old Lone Star Steakhouse location at 3040 South 143rd Plaza and the old Indigo Joe’s space at 7425 Dodge Street will be home to the next Longhorn Steakhouse locations.
