Dandelion at Flatiron
Nick Bartholomew’s obsession with repurposing, pop-ups, and historic preservation is getting out of hand, and we love to see it. The serial entrepreneur has sunk his teeth into a new repurposing project, bringing Sunday brunch pop-ups to the Covid-closed Flatiron at 1722 St Mary’s Ave. His agreement with building owners allows him access to the existing space and remaining equipment for dinners, brunches, and events. His aim is to draw talent and traffic to the spot, in the hopes that one of the talented chefs he hosts will take up residence in the historic space. Brunch kicks off this weekend with a Latin menu by Chef Andrew Novak.
Omaha Chef Wins Master Chef Apron
After grueling interviews and auditions, local radio host and home chef Tay Westberry has won an apron and a chance to compete in this season’s Master Chef: Legends. In an episode aired last week, Paula Deen narrowed down the remaining contestants, and Westberry won his apron with three of four possible votes. His joyful persona was the main course to the buttermilk biscuit apple pie with vanilla bean whipped topping dessert he presented the judges with. It’s unclear which they found more palatable. Tune in to Fox this Wednesday at 7pm to see what else Westberry is cooking up.
