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.
