Restaurants in Omaha, NE

Once home of the Union Stockyards, where cattle were fattened on their way east, Omaha is best known as a place to eat steak. Yes, indeed, you can find a big, beautifully grilled, high-priced hunk of aged beef (at Johnny’s Cafe, since 1922); but there is so much more to this city, including neighborhood bakeries that specialize in European pastries, classic urban diners and coffee shops — coffee houses, too! — and a super-stylish, very hip place to start the day. That’s the Saddle Creek Breakfast Club. One specialty you’ll find only in Omaha is called a Frenchee or Cheese Frenchee: a grilled cheese sandwich dipped in corn flake batter and fried to a crisp. Hungry pedestrians stroll the multi-block Old Market in town, where the bills of fare include sushi, artisan brownies, organic juices, farm-to-table French cuisine, oysters, bubble tea, and even a cigar bar.
