Trini’s is one of two restaurants located in the famed Old Market passageway, and while it’s been there for as long as I can remember, I don’t know anyone who has ever been. Our typical Old Market spots all busy and our curiosity sparked, a friend and I decided to visit before a show at…

I’m back in Omaha! And late June in Omaha means the College World Series, one of the best times of the year. My friends and I went to an evening game earlier in the week, and stopped by Nosh (new to all of us) for a pre-game dinner. Three of us decided to split a…

Marks Bistro, Omaha

Our first Omaha post! When Alex visited my family last month, I took him to the restaurant I’ve been going to with my friends for years- Marks. Prom, graduation, random meals- we’ve spent them all at Marks. We started with their bread spread trio- which consisted of sun-dried tomato pesto, spinach pesto and herb-feta cheese…
