NYCG is Now Block 16

In our article covering the 5th Annual Comfort Food Classic, co-owners Jessica Joyce and Paul Urban announced an upcoming name change to their restaurant. Here at Dish Omaha we call it delicious, but officially, New York Chicken & Gyro’s is now Block 16. “The name Block 16 is a play off our location (16th and Farnam) as well as a nod to the butcher block, a foundation for food & creativity,” said Jessica Joyce. If you haven’t been to Block 16 here is a little bit about them. Block 16 is happy to provide gourmet chocolate treats from Katie @thechocolatesbar.  The group uses only Plum Creek Farms free range organic chickens and GREENWARE take-out materials and food containers. Local artist and chefs Tim Maides and Michael Rhoades provide the artwork at Block 16.
