Since travel is limited right now, Visit Omaha gave me a virtual culinary tour of the amazing food they have to offer in the cornhusker state. I got to visit with 3 amazing chefs from the Omaha area that have very different style restaurants, but one common ingredient – steak.
What Is Omaha Known For?
The city of Omaha has a population of 900,000, and who knows how many cows!
The reuben sandwich was created there – not New York City like they seem to think.
Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium is home to the world’s largest indoor desert and indoor rainforest. This Nebraska zoo is ranked the #2 zoo in the country and #5 in the world by USA today (in 2020).
Warren Buffet calls Omaha home for the majority of the year. He was born in Omaha in 1930 and after some time away, he and his first wife Susie returned to Omaha to raise their children there. He currently lives in the same home he bought there for $31,500 in 1958 (in today’s economy this would be about $250,000). And if you want to eat like the richest man in the world, his favorite restaurant in Omaha is Gorat’s. But forget the steak sauce – apparently it’s a no no in Omaha to put any sauce on your steak!
