Exploring Nebraska with “The Better Half”

The Omaha World Herald writers Matthew Hansen and Sarah Baker Hansen recently highlighted their home state from border to border in a feature story in the Sunday Omaha World Herald on January 28, 2018.

In the article, they featured one restaurant & one chef in the state of Nebraska: Chef Nick Strawhecker. Chef Nick Strawhecker and the entire Dante team are grateful to have this incredible honor bestowed on the chef and the restaurant.

“Dante is the one Omaha restaurant we are more than willing to drive across town for. Once we snag a seat inside the restaurant’s comfortable-but-hip dining room, that 25-minute drive seems a distant memory. Chef and owner Nick Strawhecker runs one of the most seasonally driven menus of any restaurant in the city, and his dedication and tenacity to work with so many local producers is admirable. When morel mushroom season rolls around each spring, Nick is guaranteed to make at least one simply irresistible dish. And likely he’ll do that the rest of the year, too.”
