V. Mertz

A chalkboard displays the day's menu outside V. Mertz in the Old Market Passageway in Omaha.

The latest tasting menu at V. Mertz is no joke: Through the weekend, the restaurant plans an “April Fools’” tasting menu, where what arrives on a diner’s plate might not be what it looks like. (Don’t worry, we double-checked, and this is for real.)

The dinner will challenge a diner’s perceptions of both food and drink, and will be served through Saturday. The food is $55 a diner, with the option for a $50 beverage pairing.

V. Mertz is in the Old Market passageway, at 1022 Howard St. For more information, click here or call 402-345-8980.
