In Omaha, we love to eat…now there’s another great reason to dine out. Dozens of restaurants in the Omaha metro area are participating in the second annual Omaha Restaurant Week next month, where diners can enjoy huge savings on extravagant three course meals at some of the metro’s finest eateries.
Participating restaurants are offering multi-course dinners at a fixed price of $19, $29 or $39 per person. Patrons can select from their choice of appetizers, entrees and desserts. Says John Horvatinovich, Manager for HIRO 88, one of the featured restaurants, “What a great way to unite foodies and even casual diners. No tickets to purchase, you can choose from the prix fixe menu, or not…just get out and celebrate the art of dining.”
This year’s 40 restaurant participants include The Grey Plume, V. Mertz, Dante Ristorante Pizzeria, Wave Bistro, CRAVE, Twisted Fork and the new Blatt Beer & Table. Restaurants are offering incredible values during the promotion; for example, at Nosh Wine Lounge, patrons can order Maryland Lump Crab Cakes, Mussels steamed in a rosemary cream sauce, Godiva Mousse Bombe with Raspberry Grastique, complete with a glass of house wine, all for $29 (excluding tax and gratuity).
Restaurants that participate support the Food Bank for the Heartland. Many of the participating restaurants will also collect monetary donations for the food bank during the promotion.
Sponsors of the promotion include KETV, Omaha Restaurant Association, Clear Channel Radio (News Radio 1110 KFAB, Super Hits KGOR 99.9 FM, The Brew 96.1, The Wolf 93.3, and KAT 103), and Omaha Magazine, Nebraska Beef Council and Open Table. Local television and radio stations and other sponsors will be giving away thousands of dollars in gift cards to participating restaurants in promotion of the event.
There are no coupons or tickets to purchase. For a full list of participating restaurants, visit www.omaharestaurantweek.com. Menus will be posted by August 15. Participating restaurants anticipate being very busy during the promotion, and reservations are highly recommended.
