Did you take any detours while shooting?

“I had an extravagant weekend and went to Omaha. Somebody told me it was like the Portland, Ore., of the Midwest, and that’s a good way to put it. It’s very laid-back.

We stayed in the Magnolia Hotel, which was really charming, and there were some restaurants that were so tasty. I would put the Boiler Room up against any restaurant in New York. And there was a place where I had brunch that was to die for — to die for —Dixie Quicks in Council Bluffs, Iowa, which borders Omaha. I had some delicious biscuity concoction. I tell you, if I lived out there, I would be a much larger person because I don’t think I could stay away from that place.”
