pop-we Dinner Club Reviews Louie's Wine Dive

This month population-we™ (pop-we) foodie Marv decided we would try a dive, Louie’s Wine Dive, located at 1692 Wright Plaza in Omaha, NE. Louie’s Wine Dive is a chain located throughout the Midwest: Des Moines, Omaha, Kansas City, Maukee and Minneapolis. The location in west Omaha, is owned and operated by Jamie Burrow, a former University of Nebraska football player, who spent 12 years in sales before opening Louie’s Wine Dive.

When you walk in you notice the large bar in the middle of the room with the bookcase liquor shelves going up to the ceiling. Behind the bar you can see into the kitchen, above the kitchen counter L-o-u-i-e-’-s is spelled out in red lights. On the right side of the room there is a small stage for live music on Sunday evenings, a schedule of events can be found at The Dive In Room. Keeping with the dive theme, the dining room is comprised of mix matched chairs. My first thought was this is pretty cool and unique; however, by the time we were done with our meal my thought had changed. After two hours, my chair was very uncomfortable.

The menu at Louie’s Wine Dive has many fun and interesting sounding dishes. I decided on the Pan Roasted Chicken, which is roasted in herb butter and served with crispy potato wedges, seasonal vegetables and pan jus. When the dish comes out the chicken is piled on the potatoes to make it look like a huge serving. A little misleading, but still filling. I enjoyed this comfort food dish; from the flavor of the chicken too the veggies and the potatoes complimented nicely. Louie's menu features many gluten free entrees or entrees that can be made gluten free. As with their name there is an extensive wine menu as well as several bottles that are exclusive to Louie’s Wine Dive. For details, visit Louie's Wine List.
