Omaha a “Great City for Food Lovers” says Wall Street Journal

March 31, 2015

Berkshire Hathaway shareholders who spend any time eating at restaurants in Omaha can attest to what the Wall Street Journal announced today – Omaha is a great city for food lovers!

In an article searching for great restaurants in small cities, Omaha was selected as one of the six best. In the company of San Antonio, Columbus, Sacramento, Raleigh-Durham and Spokane, Omaha was listed as having great food in six vital contemporary restaurant genres.

Among the Wall Street Journal’s picks for Omaha are a few that the Buffett family has been known to frequent. Dario Schicke’s two Dundee restaurants (Dario’s Brasserie and Avoli Osteria) are both delicious, innovative, and a place you can occasionally catch a glimpse of Warren Buffett or Susie Buffett.  Sometimes, they dine there with famous friends… like Paul McCartney, and then go for ice cream down the street!

If you want a definite dining experience with Warren Buffett, Wednesday, April 1, is the day to act! That’s the first chance shareholders have to get reservations at Gorat’s during Berkshire Hathaway weekend. Gorat’s steakhouse is a longtime Buffett favorite, and he will eat there on Sunday evening. He says he’ll also eat at Piccolo’s, where he raves about the root beer floats! Here’s the section from Buffett’s letter to shareholders:

Gorat’s and Piccolo’s will again be open exclusively for Berkshire shareholders on Sunday, May 3rd. Both will be serving until 10 p.m., with Gorat’s opening at 1 p.m. and Piccolo’s opening at 4 p.m. These restaurants are my favorites, and I will eat at both of them on Sunday evening. Remember: To make a reservation at Gorat’s, call 402-551-3733 on April 1st (but not before); for Piccolo’s, call 402-346-2865. At Piccolo’s, order a giant root beer float for dessert. Only sissies get the small one.

So make your reservations now – either for one of those steakhouses or for one of our hundreds of other amazing restaurants. We have a partial listing of restaurants here, but if you have a specific restaurant question or request, leave me a comment and I’m happy to provide a personal suggestion. In Omaha, we love food!
