About the restaurant
Blue Sushi Sake Grill unites creative ingredients with energetic vibes, premium cold sake with happy moments to give you a fresh and fun new way to experience sushi. Our sushi and grill menus allow you to explore your sushi favorites in new and unexpected ways. We like to say that sushi is for sharing, and our menu encourages it. Order a spread of all your maki, nigiri and sashimi favs from the sushi bar, and throw in a few orders of starters from the grill. We'll stagger your plates so you can savor it all bite-by-bite, and maximize the sushi experience you've been craving all week. If you're not sure where to start, tour the menu during Happy Hour, where all our guest favorites — from our sushi, grill and drink menus — are available at an amazing value. We offer Happy Hour every day of the week at Blue Sushi Sake Grill!

Met friends here from out of town. They loved it! Since we eat at Blue fairly often, we expected nothing less.

About the restaurant
The Sage Student Bistro operates as a customer-focused classroom providing our students an opportunity to refine their culinary, bakery, service and supervisory skills. In this setting, the element of time is as important as the food and service. Because it is a classroom, the Bistro is only open when classes are in session during each quarter. A standard menu is offered at lunch, and features student specials. Dinner service offers tasting menus and select student-crafted courses. Find us on Facebook for service dates, menus, and additional information.

THINGS TO KNOW
Reservations are available and recommended for both lunch and dinner. Walk-ins will be served as possible. Reservations for groups up to 6 persons are available through OpenTable.com or the widget below. Groups larger than 6 should contact us for reservations.
Attire at Sage: During lunch service casual attire is welcome. During dinner service, business casual to casual elegant is strongly encouraged.

Our group of 4 enjoyed our lunches very much. Each dish was unique and refreshing. Our waitress was excellent when providing information about each menu item and the details of receiving the meals as they were prepared. We will definitely be back to enjoy lunch or dinner soon. Thank you!

About the restaurant
V. Mertz offers our guests a progressive, contemporary American menu with an emphasis on seasonal and local ingredients. We offer an award-winning wine list of over 400 selections. The restaurant is located in Omaha’s historic and picturesque Old Market Passageway, within walking distance from the CHI Convention Center, The Holland Performing Arts Center, the Orpheum, and all major downtown hotels.

V. Mertz is locally-owned, and we pride ourselves in offering artisan products and cheeses, organically-grown local produce and Wagyu beef, and sustainably-farmed and line-caught seafood. We believe that dining should be an event, and to this end Chef Jonathan Miller has created a harmony of food and wine, culminating in our extravagant Tasting Menu.

Perfect for business or pleasure, V. Mertz is the premier fine-dining restaurant in Omaha.

Wife birthday dinner and we did the chef's tasting menu. 6 Courses paired with wine. All 6 courses were displayed and tasted phenomenal. The two that stuck out to me the most were the seared scallop and the short rib courses. The fish was great and the strawberry balls on the desert were a refreshing treat! I will definitely be going back!

Dante scores again! Fabulous cocktails, appetizer, salad and entrees. And Jackson recommended a 1/2 price bottle of wine that was absolutely spot on in terms of the style we like!
