The Grey Plume – Omaha, NE

The Grey Plume – Omaha, NE

On a recent trip to visit my college girlfriend, she and her husband took me to The Grey Plume located in Midtown Crossing, a new and upcoming mixed use urban area with contemporary architecture and now, a restaurant to compliment that style.  The interior is minimal but not cold with subdued colors and pieces of art adding subtle splashes of color to the walls.

Every dish was so beautifully composed.  Truly works of art!  And delicious too:)  My favorite were the duck fat fries to start (nothing healthy about those but so tasty) and my trout…so good!  Overall if I lived in Omaha or were there more often I would definitely go back here.  It’s not your typical Monday night neighborhood joint but rather somewhere you’d go for a special occasion.

Beautiful amuse bouche – deconstructed dill pickle – yum!

Duck Fat Fries – farm fresh egg, aioli

Beef tartare – pickled vegetables, accoutrements

Blue Valley Steelhead Trout – oyster mushroom, frisée, créme fraiche spatzle, fiddlehead fern, fennel

Plum Creek Farm Chicken Roulade – beet, potato gnocchi, shiitake mushroom

Rosemary Poundcake – raspberry, blueberry, basil
