  1. The Boiler Room is probably the best restaurant in Omaha right now. It's a great date restaurant. From what I've heard, their initial service problems have been resolved for the most part.
  2. Ditto, congrats! Looking forward to making our first visit in August. Do you think ChefGEB would resurrect dishes of days past for someone who never got a chance to hit Avenues? Anyone know what days he's usually in the kitchen?
  3. I sure didn't. Thanks for the heads up.
  4. Keep in mind, this is from the old Cook's Tour show, so yeah, very old. I'm hoping Rulman has found a pair of socks by now.
  5. We were not given a reason, but as I mentioned *way* back up thread, I think our server was new to waiting tables or something because our service was lacking in a lot of ways, though it didn't really take away from our enjoyment of the meal. Don't get me wrong - our meal was great without it - I just wish I would have been able to try it. That said, I'm not sure which dish I would have replaced in it's spot, so it's probably just as well. So I look forward to seeing new pics from Manresa with twisted emotions
  6. Check out "A Cook's Tour" this week. Anthony Bourdain hits TFL with celebrity chefs in tow. If you're impatient, you can watch TFL section of the episode here.
  7. We were there in January, but I requested it because I saw it on the regular menu.
  8. That's not always true. We requested the Abalone with pig trotters, but was not served that dish. Manresa photos from GFC
  9. Reviving this thread. I'm having lunch here on Tuesday. Anyone have recommendations on what to order?
  10. I don't know the area real well, but here are some place I might recommend. BREAKFAST: Louie M's Burger Lust - Could do for lunch too. 11-Worth Cafe Taxi's - For Sunday brunch LUNCH: Ethnic Sandwich Shop Los Portales Bohemian Cafe? - A little bit slower Dinker's Bar & Grill DINNER: M's Pub - When he has time to relax Lucky's Ten-O-One - Finally got a real chef RESOURCES: Reviews of Omaha Restaurants
  11. Heehee, I did the same thing. BTW, great pics.Our 2nd trip to The French Laundry
  12. Just out of curiosity, what day of the week is your reservation for? I've found it's far easier to get a reservation for mid-week then it is for the coveted Fri/Sat spots.
  13. Great post Nathan. That's exactly what I've been thinking as I've been reading this thread for the past week or so.
  14. I guess I should have clarified, just a little bit. Looking to buy :-) We will be staying with family, so we can shop like locals. Looking for stuff to eat while were there and we'll have access to a kitchen. Not really looking to ship or bring anything back to Omaha with us. I think we're going to save our oyster binge for Swan Depot, so any other suggestions?
  15. I'll be returning to SF in mid-April and wanted to get some advice on hitting the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market for the very first time. I'll be arriving at SFO around 11:30 AM on a Sat and leaving around 6 AM the next Sat. So here are my questions: 1) Who are the "Must Visit" vendors? 2) Are there a lot of differences in the vendors that attend on Sat vs. Tues? If so, are any of them major "must visit" vendors? 3) How much smaller are the crowds on Tuesdays? 4) Best lunch options? Thanks!
