Brix at Midtown Crossing is now open.

Much like the original Brix at Village Pointe, Brix at Midtown Crossing creatively brings together a full-menu Bistro, a wine and spirits retail shop and event space. Designed by owner Dan Matuszek, he states that, “the Midtown Crossing location really is more of a ‘Bistro first, retail store second concept.’ There is a lot more emphasis on the food and highlighting the talents of who we think is one of the great young chefs in Omaha, our executive chef Erik Rickard.” He continues, “the Bistro at the Midtown Crossing location also features a larger bar area for drinks and cocktails, plus 27 different premium craft beers and Sprecher Root Beer on draught – not currently available at Brix Village Pointe. Outside, guests will soon be able to socialize on a huge patio.” The biggest outdoor patio in Omaha, which Matuszek states as the next big project, hopefully will be ready for Spring 2013. Brix at Midtown Crossing is located at 220 South 31st Ave. Ste. 3103. Their website is
