Brewsky’s

Mon-Sat: 11:00 am - 1:00 am
Sun: 12:00 pm- 12:00 am


While it may sound like sports fan sacrilege for us to say, our chef-created menu makes Brewsky’s a great place to eat - even if you don’t care about sports. Take a look. You’ll discover items on a Brewsky’s menu that are more than a step above standard fare. In fact, there’s truly something for everyone on our menu. While Brewsky’s menu may not bring peace between coaches and game officials, it could very well end the age-old debate between sports bar and gourmet American cuisine. And it’s only at Brewsky’s. -Via Brewsky’s website

Q&A With Brix & Stone

We are creating a destination that can demand the respect and love of being called a home away from home. A restaurant with a heart, your own Brix & Stone. What is a Gastropub you may ask…A British term for a public house that specializes in serving high-quality food and drink. Gastronomy is the science of food, collaborated with the word pub (bar) which gave birth to a new style of restaurants in Europe. This new trend is now sweeping across the United States, and we are proud to be a part of it. -Via Brix & Stone’s Facebook page

Bruegger’s Bagel Bakery


Mon-Fri: 5:30 am – 4:00 pm
Sat-Sun: 6:00 am – 3:00 pm


When Nord Brue and Mike Dressell started Bruegger’s in 1983, they actually founded the retail bagel concept. Up until that point, bagels were considered mostly an ethnic food and were not known much outside of New York. At that time, less than one-third of Americans had ever tasted a bagel! From their home base in Burlington, Vermont, Brue and Dressell pioneered a new concept that expanded the traditional bagel bakery into a quick service bakery with premium specialty cream cheeses, custom-made sandwiches, signature soups and exceptional coffee. They worked with a professional bagel baker from New York City for 2 1/2 years to perfect their recipe and baking process. Known for genuine New York-style bagels baked fresh throughout the day, Bruegger’s also bakes an array of fresh breads on site including honey wheat and hearty white. Guests can choose a variety of menu items that include unique cream cheese flavors, breakfast sandwiches, hand-tossed salads, hearty soups, sandwiches, panini and desserts, with a frequently changing menu reflecting seasonal and geographical specialties. Today, almost 30 years after the first Bruegger’s opened in Troy, New York, there are over 300 Bruegger’s bakeries in 26 states, the District of Columbia and Canada. -Via Bruegger’s website

Lincoln, NE is home to the fourth and most recent Buzzard Billy’s. It opened May 16, 2000. This restaurant sits in the center of the Historic Haymarket section at the West edge of downtown. This location is housed in the first floor of the old H.P. Lau commercial grocery building built in 1906. It, like the Des Moines store, also has the original wood beams exposed throughout. Buzzard Billy’s Lincoln location is convenient to the Embassy Suites and Holiday Inn Hotels. A Farmer’s Market is held one block away each Saturday morning from the first weekend in May to the last weekend in October. The restaurant and bar is within convenient walking distance to Memorial Stadium, home of the Nebraska Husker Football team. It also is just down the street from Haymarket park, home of the newly formed Lincoln Saltdogs. It will be home to the newly formed Lincoln Saltdogs minor league baseball team and to the top ranked University of Nebraska baseball and softball teams. The Lincoln location also has a large covered patio dining area that fronts 8th street. It is a great place to dine and people watch while enjoying the mild summer days and evenings.

Fri - Sat: 8:00 am to 10:00 pm
Sun: 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm

At Café Indigo you can get more than a cup of coffee. When you walk through the door, you will see that our emphasis in education and community is present in every corner of the café. Our dedicated baristas will greet you at the counter, where you will have plenty of time to peruse the drink menu and other food items from local businesses. Drink in-hand, you can have a seat at one of our many tables. One of the seating areas is more open, placed next to the big front windows. This spot is great for mingling with the people who walk into the store. Or, you may choose the quieter seating area. This more enclosed space, lined with dark wood walls, lends well to studying or quiet conversation. Also, in this space is our book exchange. This bookcase contains books Indigo staff and patrons have donated. If you need to study or work and need a laptop, we have two available to check out. Leave your driver’s license with an Indigo team member, and you can use the Internet, a word-processing program, and photo-editing software. If you apply for a user account, you can come back another time and keep working on projects on that laptop. You can relax at one of the tables as long as you like, reading a book from the book exchange, working on a laptop, planning out your weekend from what you read on the community board, or chatting up one of our frequent patrons. You never know what you can learn. -Via Cafe Indigo’s website

Chipotle

Mon-Sun: 11:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m.

When Chipotle (pronounced chi-POAT-lay) opened its first store in 1993, the idea was simple: demonstrate that food served fast didn’t have to be a “fast-food” experience. We use high-quality raw ingredients, classic cooking methods and distinctive interior design—features that are more frequently found in the world of fine dining. When we opened, there wasn’t an industry category to describe what we were doing. Some 16 years and more than 900 restaurants later, we compete in a category of dining now called “fast-casual,” the fastest growing segment of the restaurant industry, where customers expect food quality that’s more in line with full-service restaurants, coupled with the speed and convenience of fast food. We try to do a few things really well. We elevate basic raw ingredients into food that’s richer and more sophisticated through our recipes and cooking techniques. Similarly, our restaurant design transforms simple materials in distinctive ways, giving our restaurants a style that’s more architectural in nature and less dependent on standardized design elements. Our focus has always been on using higher-quality ingredients and cooking techniques to make great food accessible to all people at reasonable prices. But our vision has evolved. While using a variety of fresh ingredients remains the foundation of our menu, we believe that “fresh is not enough, anymore.” Now we want to know the sources for all of our ingredients, so that we can be sure they are as flavorful as possible while we are mindful of the environmental and societal impact of our business. We call this idea, Food With Integrity, and it guides how we run our business. -Via Chipotle’s website
