Louie’s Dives, Replaced by Steak and Grapes

Early this month, the West Omaha restaurant Louie’s Wine Dive closed, and was somewhat quietly replaced by Steak and Grapes, a traditional steakhouse and bar at 16920 Wright Plaza. With an extensive but focused menu, the establishment serves a variety of grass fed and standard meats, priced per ounce. Starting your meal with a blooming t-bone may seem needlessly decadent, but I may be a glutton. Prepared medium (overcooked in any other application, but it works here) and thinly sliced, the “appetizer” is served with baguette toast points, tomatoes, and gorgonzola, and topped with cilantro and onion. Open Monday-Thursday 10am-10pm, Friday and saturday 10am-11pm Sunday 10am-9pm
