Settle down into Mooo….’s classy vibe for a night to remember. The highly-regarded and amusingly-named steakhouse serves a series of delicious cuts, but seafood also takes a prominent place on the menu. Enjoy a tuna tartare appetizer followed by their Greater Omaha New York Sirloin, or the Japanese A5 Wagyu Sirloin served with herb and marrow butter. Of course, it wouldn’t be a steak meal without some onion rings and vegetable sides. Pair with a glass of wine from their extensive list, or try their fun signature cocktails: The Old Man and The Pea, Get Yer Ja-Ja’s Out! and Let’s Mull it Over. Mooo…. is currently open for in-house dining, reservations only.
