Billy’s Restaurant

According to executive chef Nader Farahbod, Billy’s Restaurant owes its name to local politician and three-time presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan. Though he is now remembered for speaking passionately against the gold standard and slam-dunking over William McKinley in an early debate, Bryan also harbored a notable fondness for his country’s cuisine. His stumping tours allowed him to sample many of America’s regional dishes, which Chef Farahbod has re-created or reinterpreted on a menu that features pan-seared crab cakes and Dijon-glazed grilled salmon. Though the dishes’ origins span the country, the restaurant’s setting in the historic Noble-Dawes house—home to former vice president Charles Dawes—is firmly entrenched in Nebraskan lore.

Bryan’s keenness for Prohibition has not carried over to the restaurant that bears his name. Behind the Chautauqua Bar, bartenders craft shaken cherry martinis and other signature cocktails. In keeping with the restaurant’s deep connection to Lincoln’s roots, they also pour pints of locally brewed Empyrean beers. Photographs of notable lawyers line the dining room, where the tables are sturdy enough to play host to large groups and post-dinner stump speeches.

Reviews

I had the Pepper Sea Scallops and they were cooked perfectly. My husband had the pork shank. It melted in your mouth.

The rack of lamb was phenomenal, definitely a top shelf prepared meal.
