Pana 88 Coming to Midtown Crossing

A fast-casual Pan-Asian eatery, is set to join Midtown Crossing’s restaurants in spring 2012 called Pana 88. Located at 3201 Farnam St., Pana 88 will offer a wide variety of hot Chinese, Japanese, and other Asian dishes. Owner Charlie Yin, whose family also owns Hiro Sushi in west Omaha and Hiro 88 in the Old Market, said Pana 88 will specialize in affordable, comfort-casual dining. Lunch goers will the target market, but will also be able to handle the dinner crowd for a quick bite to eat before a movie or a place to snack during Jazz on the Green. Alley Poyner (designers of The Grey Plume and Pitch Pizza) will be designing the space. If all goes according to plan, Pana 88 will open in Midtown Crossing in late April 2012.
