Omaha, Nebraska

Omaha, Nebraska is nestled along the state border with Iowa, placing it very much in the heart of the Midwestern United States. The birthplace of former President Gerald Ford, Malcolm Little (known as Malcolm X), Marlon Brando, and Fred Astaire, Omaha has had many of its citizens play large roles in American life. The College World Series of baseball has also called Omaha home since 1950. For Omaha’s greatest contribution to the American culinary tradition, look no further than the grilled corned beef on rye sandwich known as the Reuben. It is believed that a grocer named Reuben Kulakofsky created the sandwich as part of a regular poker meeting with friends. One of the other players who owned a local hotel put the “Reuben” on his hotel’s menu. Thus, an American favorite was born.
