Review: Lied Lodge Timber Dining Room

Earlier this fall, Matthew and I took a day trip down to Nebraska City. (Read about what else we did.) I’d interviewed Lied Lodge Chef Matthew Taylor once before, for a story I wrote about TD Niche Pork, and I really wanted to try his cooking. And if you couldn’t tell by my review, I was impressed.

Top, trout with local peach sauce. Above, Plum Creek chicken with toasted quinoa and beet sauce with lemongrass oil.

I went back a second time, with a friend who knows a lot about food, to make sure I was right. She’s one of my toughest dining partners, and she loved it too.

The short form: It’s worth an hour’s drive from Omaha to check Taylor out. He’s got a smart philosophy when it comes to food, and he’s living it through what comes out of his kitchen.
