Anniversary Dinner Suggestions?

Early next month is our 12th anniversary and we have started discussing our restaurant options for that annual date.  Last year we discovered a new favorite of ours, Shucks, on our anniversary.  We often enjoy finding great new places, but we have some favorites that we don’t have the opportunity to get back to much, especially with our new tightened budget these days.  (I’d still love a great reason to go back to Bonefish Grill.  Maybe this is it.) So we’re both supposed to take some time to research some options and then come back together to discuss. 

So, my helpful readers, I am asking for your suggestions.  Where, in the Omaha metro area, would you suggest we spend our wad for our anniversary?  (Note: it’s not necessarily a large wad!)  We’ve discussed going to a new sushi place, but as I’ve tried several places and always still prefer Hiro, I’m not sure I want to waste money on a new sushi place when I know I could have amazing sushi there.  And though we often prefer seafood, we’re open to other options too.  (Mahogany steakhouse is probably out of our price range, FYI.  Though it’s definitely on my bucket list!)


  1. Jackson Street Tavern was pretty good, and a nice atmosphere. I'm not a 'foodie' so I could be completely mis-classifying the style, but I would say 'American with a twist'. It's not burgers and fries, but they have an interesting sandwich selection, as well as, other entrees. Good prices.

  2. My recommendation is Lo Sole Mio. It's a little pricey, but worth it. They give you fresh, roasted garlic to spread on your bread with every meal..mmm....

  3. Lo Sole Mio is definitely on our list!! We've heard great things. Thanks!
