The Lincoln restaurant where chef Trey Nelson works has been open only two weeks, yet here he is, on a rainy Tuesday morning, cooking at a downtown Omaha tailgate party.
He's working solo — and quickly — because at least 10 hungry LSU fans are waiting for a “Raspberry Beret,” a hand-pattied grilled burger topped with homemade raspberry jalapeno jam, homemade peanut butter spiced with Jamaican jerk seasoning and sesame oil, hand-cured and candied bacon, raw red onion and shredded lettuce.
