How I'm making the most of Omaha Restaurant Week

How I'm making the most of Omaha Restaurant Week

My favorite thing about Omaha Restaurant Week each year is that even for me, a diner who eats out all the time, ORW encourages me to get back to places I don't visit enough. 

But my second favorite thing is this: there are some great deals to be had. I'll be detailing all the meals I've had so far on Omaha Dines tomorrow, but I thought I'd share a few tips until then. 

» I like to visit restaurants who create a special menu just for the week. It means they're often featuring local, seasonal ingredients at a special price. It's also fun to see chefs flex their creative muscles.

» If there's a special cocktail or a well-priced wine, it is, in my experience, always worth the splurge. 

» If you've never been to a restaurant, ORW is a great time to try a large chunk of the menu at a discount, particularly because many spots feature their most popular regular menu items during the week.

» Save room for dessert. If you're like me, you don't often get it, so it's easy to overindulge early in the meal and miss more deliciousness at the end.

See you next week.
