Eating Omaha ...J. Coco

Last night I had a meeting at J. Coco for a lecture on a drug we use in the Cath Lab a lot. The lecture was the usual fare, well done and easy to understand.

The food was fantastic. We started with a round of appetizers. Tempura Calamari, Korean Style Short Rib Tacos and Seared Yellow Fin Tuna.  The dinner started off with a Seven Hills Cabernet that was spicy and fruity.  For the entree's the choices were limited to a few menu items but some of the best ones. Ben and I had the Medallions of Beef with various sides. He had Mac and Cheese and I have the shaved Brussels Sprouts. Both were delicious. The Mac and Cheese was very reminiscent of Ryan's Bistro here in Omaha.

The 3 Medallions were each served with a different topping. The portions were perfect. One covered with creamed spinach, another with a lobster cream and the last with mushrooms all on a bed of potato latkes. The Sprouts came in a separate bowl garnished with Marcona Almonds. Shredded and roasted in a cream sauce, they were very good.

The rest of the crowd had ordered Cedar Plank Salmon which also looked great. There are many items of the menu that look worth a try and I made reservations for next Friday for our 32nd anniversary. Looking forward to it.  The neighborhood is quaint and remodeled. The site used to be a grocery that has since moved Mid Town and they did an excellent job decorating the place. Very warm and modern at the same time. The wait staff was doting and friendly. Nice place.
