So you want to eat a steak…

Saturday, May 6th, 2017

Mark this one as the 3rd most frequently asked question at our shareholder information booth at Borsheims.

“Where can I get a good steak in Omaha?”

Everyone knows about Gorat’s – since that’s Warren Buffett’s favorite steak house – but it’s usually totally booked during Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend.

I usually ask shareholders a few questions about what type of experience they’re looking for. A traditional old Omaha steakhouse experience where you get pasta and baked potato as a side dish? A more updated experience? A quicker place or a more expensive sit-down place? There are so many great options and I love to talk about food.

(Here’s our list of restaurants by area of city. And here’s a past post discussing food. Here’s another. And now I’m hungry.)

Our fantastic local food critic at the Omaha World Herald must get the same question because she put out a list of steakhouses and hot new restaurants for shareholders. Click here to read her list.

And while it’s not a steakhouse, her list does mention Block 16 which is a MUST VISIT when I talk to out-of-towners. Delicious, affordable, and innovative. One of my personal favorites!

What Are You Eating Five Weeks From Now?

Monday, March 25th, 2013

Do you know what you are eating five weeks from now?

If you are attending Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend in Omaha May 3 – 5, you might want to start thinking about it! Some of Warren Buffett’s most popular restaurants book up very quickly. So if you want to dine with the Oracle of Omaha, you may want to start thinking food.

Warren Buffett addresses his favorite restaurants in his annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders:

Gorat’s and Piccolo’s will again be open exclusively for Berkshire shareholders on Sunday, May 5th. 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) and at Piccolo’s call 402-342-9038. At Piccolo’s, order a giant root beer float for dessert. Only sissies get the small one. (I once saw Bill Gates polish off two of the giant variety after a full-course dinner; that’s when I knew he would make a great director.)

Warren Buffett knows good food. And he knows the new owners of Gorat’s well! We will give you an exclusive look inside the newly remodeled Gorat’s in a coming blog post. But for now, figure out where you want to dine (after you’re exhausted from shopping at Borsheims all day Sunday) and make your reservations. You don’t want to get to Omaha and not have a great steak!
