I finally completed the restaurant tour of one of Omaha’s high dining hubs just north of the 137th and Dodge exit. This area of restaurants, which is jammed right next to Dodge between several corporate buildings, has grabbed my attention as one of Omaha’s more impressive collection of eateries. The last installment of my journey through this noteworthy group of establishments was Mahogany. Mahogany, the most expensive of this gathering of restaurants, is a steakhouse designed for the upper crust of society. Patrons can drop some serious cash if they desire. It reminded me a lot of a Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse with its al carte menu, elegant atmosphere, and focus on premium steaks. Even though I did not feel like I had anything common with the other customers eating there, both socially and economically, I truly enjoyed my experience at Mahogany. Mahogany’s food was delicious.
They successfully prepared and served every entrée we ordered on their simple but effective menu. The filet, pork chops, and side dishes (macaroni and cheese and steak fries) were all outstanding. The atmosphere was the essence of high dollar dining. Gleaming white table cloths, well-kept dark wood, and enticing dim lighting were prominent features of this classy steakhouse. The restaurant was spotless and in absolutely pristine condition. Our team of servers was extremely professional, prompt, and always there for us. In other words Mahogany delivered in every way. I hate to admit it but their prices reflect the quality of their food, service, and atmosphere.
Deep down I wish everyone could afford to eat at a place like Mahogany anytime they wanted since they serve such high quality food. However, the reality is most people will only be able to dine there for super special occasions or in a once-a-year frequency because of their prices. I encourage all Omahans to try this steakhouse, at least once.
