Omaha’s historic Benson district is known for cold beer, hot music and crafty comfort food. The Benson “strip” features some of Omaha’s favorite bars and eateries, and one of the anchor institutions include 1912. Named after the year the building was built, 1912 serves up American favorites made with locally sourced ingredients. The imaginative menu and innovative cocktails paired with a rooftop patio make for a relaxing (and delicious) night out.
Regulars crave the pulled pork nachos layered frijoles borrachos, poblano pico de gallo, jack cheese and lime crema (you’ll want to order extra crema). Others claim the 1912 burger as the best in the city with the sweet and savory flavors coming from the Angus beef patty topped with pork belly, tomato jam, jack cheese and black truffle aioli. End on a sweet note with the lemon cream beignets.
