My Weekly Restaurant Choice Tasteem Contest Entry
After setting up for the UFC fights and the work was done we headed a few more blocks downtown Lincoln Nebraska to LeadBellys for a dinner. The burgers are typically well done so I had to ask for medium rare to get it barely pink yet I am not complaining, it was delicious and juicy. You may think this is why this became my weekly choice (while in Lincoln) you will have to scroll to the bottom of the restaurant pictures to see! I wanted to go back and eat a few more meals there before leaving yet I could not do more than 1 more so I started taking a few pictures on my return trip that Sunday before flying home to write a post about it. I then found tasteem and applied for the whitelist and have been waiting. This is my first review post and looking forward to many more! To see LeadBelly online and their menu click here.
When LeadBelly was a scribbled, near illegible concept on a crumpled cocktail napkin, co-owners Michael Martin, Tony and Wendy Young envisioned a restaurant and bar where friends, family and foodies could gather to celebrate, love, laugh, mourn, learn, cheer and connect. Insanely passionate about connecting with people – and providing a mouth-watering experience with the food they love, has always been a priority for the LeadBelly Team. When space became available in the over 130-year-old Seaton & Lea Foundry building in the Historic Haymarket in 2013, it seemed the perfect place for LeadBelly to come to fruition.
The expansive contemporary American menu offers a little something for everyone from the signature LeadBelly burgers to street tacos, entrees, sandwiches, pastas and more. Haymarket patrons can indulge in unique appetizers and fresh salads, and choose from a broad selection of local beers, wine and signature cocktails. It might be difficult to decide between the infamous Raspberry Beret or Full Leaded Jacket LeadBelly burgers.
“We believe the restaurant industry should be fun,” says Mike. “Our parent company, Red Herring Concepts, was formed with the notion to create restaurant concepts that allow our guests to find an enjoyable distraction on their daily path in life. Our LeadBelly Team comes to work every day to have fun, engage our guests and offer them a seriously comfortable place to enjoy unique flavors shared with friends and family.”
LeadBelly is the second restaurant concept from Red Herring Concepts. TOAST, which opened in 2009, is located in northwest Lincoln’s Fallbrook neighborhood. A second LeadBelly restaurant opened in 2016 at Midtown Crossing in Omaha.
I happened to be in Lincoln Nebraska working the UFC fight almost 2 weeks ago and took these photographs myself. This panoramic view is of the train car we ate in.
Being in Nebraska the waitress informed us they were famous for their Burgers and spat out some grade A USDA technical meat verbage to confuse and hunger us. As you can see my friend to the left was very hungry and ordered 2 dishes.
This is another a view of the bar and restaurant.
This is the view from out front, if you look far left you will see the train car we ate in.
Now you see the reason this is my favorite weekly restaurant! This Bacon Graham Sunday is to die for! If you are in Omaha or Lincoln you will be happy and fat if you take my advice!
