What to Eat in Omaha

Omaha is known for its steakhouses, and you'll certainly see your fair share of those throughout the city, but a recent boom in farm-to-table cuisine has taken center stage, with local purveyors providing restaurants with farm-grown produce, meat and homemade cheeses.

To get a taste of some of the best in the city, head to Kitchen Table, a casual eatery that serves modern-style comfort food (think meatloaf sandwiches, bourbon pulled pork and seared chicken breast). Almost everything here has been made in-house or carted in from a local farm.

For a celebratory feast, reserve a table at The Grey Plume, a highly acclaimed restaurant known for its top-notch meat dishes and seasonal cuisine, including whole-roasted steelhead trout, wagyu beef and french fries cooked in duck fat.

Pitch Pizzeria is beloved for its coal-fired crusts and unique toppings, such as shrimp scampi, Thai peanut sauce and spicy Sriracha, among others. For the less adventurous, there are traditional favorites like meatball pizza and margherita pizza. Other menu highlights include the lobster mac n' cheese, chicken fried steak and wings. My Pie, a popular pizza chain with other locations in Arizona and Nevada, is another local and traveler favorite.

And to sample locally brewed Nebraska beer, you should point your feet in the direction of Local, a bar that serves more than 100 regional brews.
