Lincoln / Omaha recs

We’re visiting a friend this weekend who recently moved to Lincoln, NE for work. Favorite restaurants/ bottle shops? Is anything in Omaha worth driving to if we’re staying in Lincoln?

So far he’s found The Oven to have the best wine list and mentioned a place called Dish that’s not going to be open while we’re there (Sunday / Monday).


Fantastic experiences at Le Bouillon (dinner) and an impressive selection of bottles at the attached Howard Street Wine Merchants. No trip to Omaha should go without visiting both. No knowledge of Lincoln’s offerings, sorry.

On a business trip to Omaha back in 2018 I enjoyed both The Boiler Room and 801 Chophouse:

Thank you both!

Went to The Oven in Lincoln last night. Killer wine list with some really underpriced gems.
