Omaha Restaurant Week is a 10-day celebration of the culinary scene in Omaha. The event started Sept. 14 and runs through Sunday, Sept. 23. Participating restaurants offer a three-course dinner for the price of $19, $29 or $39 (not including tax and gratuity). A portion of all proceeds from Omaha Restaurant Week benefit Food Bank for the Heartland.
The Food Bank for the Heartland is the largest food bank in Nebraska and Iowa. The Omaha-based non-profit provides emergency and supplemental food to the people in need in Nebraska and western Iowa. The food bank encompass 93 counties in the two-state region and serves more than 300 after-school programs, food pantries, rehabilitation centers, senior housing sites and emergency shelters.
There are no passes, coupons or tickets required. Visit Omaha Restaurant Week's website here for a list of participating restaurants. Certain restaurants are also collecting monetary donations for Food Bank for the Heartland. Check for a bowl and spoon icon on the restaurant profile to see if the restaurant is a donation site.
Food lovers may simply dine out at as many participating restaurants as they like during the week, enjoy old favorites or explore new dining opportunities.
