If your a foodie Grey Plume at Midtown Crossing is pretty much the place to be, it would be highly regarded in any city of any size in the country. Especially with it being spring the menu is great. They don't even have a walk in fridge as fresh as it gets. Named greenest restaurant in the country the year it opened.

Lot 2 in Benson is the hottest new restaurant in the city. It is in one of the often over looked neighborhoods when people list off places to go in Omaha.

Be sure to spend some time in the Old Market, lots of restaurants and shops.

Do you mean "Amato's" on Center St.? I was going to include that on the list. It's a great place for comfort food, especially breakfast. If you're looking for other great 'dives', I'd also include Big Mamma's Kitchen and Lisa's Radial Cafe. I purposely excluded Latin places since you live in San Antonio (I lived there for 4 years).

I also forgot to mention a new serious foodie place in the mid-town area called J. Coco. Dario's Brasserie (Belgian menu) is also worth checking out. There's a new Morroccan dive restaurant near Midtown Crossing called Marrakech that is burning up the local restaurant blogs.

Yeah there are a few good taquerias in South O, but I am sure they can't beat what you can find in San Antonio.

That one is J. Coco, splitting hairs just may be easier to find info on it that way.

Also another "dive" Dixie Quicks in Council Bluffs is part restaurant part art gallery.
