Like Sunday dinners and Friday game nights, the atmosphere at a Sam & Louie's restaurant revolves around family, and has done so since its first location opened in 1994 in Omaha, Nebraska. Today, at each of the eatery's 22 locations, families bond over great conversation and an eclectic mix of casual cuisine from a menu inspired by traditional New York?style pizzerias. Eighteen specialty pizzas are hand tossed into thin-crust pies before being decorated with more than 35 toppings such as creamy alfredo sauce, and canadian bacon. The same daily made dough is used to construct calzones and strombolis, which ooze with mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce. Specialty dough can be whipped up to create gluten-free pizzas. The menu culminates in five 1/3 lb. Black Angus burgers and eight types of pastas.
Named for the terroir in which its grapes flourish, Glacial Till Vineyard's rocky mineral-rich soil is home to nine varieties of French-American red and white grapes that grow ripe on the vine across gently sloping hills. Those grapes are crushed, pressed, and eventually transformed into handcrafted wines, including a smooth and dry Chambourcin; the semisweet and fruity Edelweiss; and the bright, springy Frontenac Rose. At the beautiful off-site tasting room, visitors can take a seat at a caf? table or along the bar to enjoy sips of all of Glacial Till's wines, which can also be ordered by the glass or bottle.
In 1973, Willy Theisen had two loves: pizza and the classic gangster movie that had just made Francis Ford Coppola a household name. Finding the one thing his two loves shared––Italian tradition––Theisen founded Godfather's Pizza and created its first specialty pie: the Classic Combo.
For decades, the growing pizza chain has served this tasty combination of beef, pepperoni, sausage, onions, black olives, and mushrooms over a bed of mozzarella cheese. Its menu has expanded over the years and now features a full list of specialty and build-your-own pizzas, including gluten-free options.
