Meet the Chefs

Chef Nick Strawhecker, a local chef who trained in Europe, is the owner/chef of Dante. He specializes in authentic, wood-fired Neapolitan pizza and rustic Italian cuisine. Nick cultivates relationships with growers and producers across the Midwest and as a result, his table is ruled by the seasons. Nick owns one of the few restaurants in the country that has pizza certified by the Italian Government.

It's been said that Kitchen Table, a restaurant owned by Chef Colin and his wife Jessica, is the kind of place that can change the way you eat. Before moving back to Omaha to open the restaurant, the couple spent time in San Francisco perfecting their culinary skills. Kitchen Table's menu changes almost daily and is full of locally-raised seasonal food. Almost everything, including bread and jam, is made in house. The crew makes a Snack Mix of house bacon, candied nuts, and house popcorn that should come with a warning: highly addictive.
