Review: The Dundee Dell is back for a new generation of locals

By Sarah Baker Hansen

One of the toughest things a restaurant owner can take on is the reinvention of a classic. The Dundee Dell, which is nearing a century of history in midtown Omaha, is certainly that kind of an icon.

So I was excited to see a successful revamp of this neighborhood spot, at 5007 Underwood Ave., when I visited twice recently. The reinvention includes the look, the aesthetic and a total rethink of the menu, transforming the familiar into a fresh, modern version of a classic British pub.

Of course, the Dell still serves Guinness and fish and chips, longtime hallmarks of the 88-year-old midtown spot that Omahans have long recognized and embraced.

But there are also modern tenants of a British pub: chicken tikka masala, bangers and mash, a great burger, a Reuben (of course, this is Omaha) and a newly renovated bar, The Pine Room, devoted entirely to Scotch and whisky.

Together, it means this: The Dell is refreshed and ready for another generation.

Co-owners Ryan Miller and Drew Wilson purchased the pub right after it closed in summer 2020. Miller also owns Barchen, in Benson; Wilson has worked at several of the city’s high end craft cocktail spots, including the Benson basement bar Kaitei.

The pair impressively updated the restaurant, adding new floors, warm blue paint, modern light fixtures and inviting orange booths made by local furniture makers Roger and Chris, who also have a store in Dundee.

They also talked to longtime regulars to see what they might like in an updated Dell, Miller said. “We wanted to try and figure out what the Dell means,” he said. “We knew it was going to be different, but we also wanted to make sure it was still a neighborhood spot.”

The feedback led them to make the most noticeable menu changes. And these changes begin with the item the Dell is most known for: Those fish and chips.

The dish has been reinvented. Miller said the restaurant buys the highest quality cod it can find, and that’s clear after the first bite. The white fish is firm and flaky, and the breading is medium-thick, crispy, airy and hot as heck when it’s served. Fried fish can get greasy, and sometimes the breading pulls away from the meat, but that doesn’t happen here. The flavor is clean and light in spite of the dip in hot oil.

Miller said the fish is dipped in curry-spiked beer batter every 30 minutes, to make sure each diner gets the freshest plate the kitchen can make. Fun fact: The restaurant tried about 50 fish recipes before landing on this one. That due diligence worked out just fine.

The potato coins have been replaced with crisp-tender French fries, and the paper bag for serving has been replaced with a long rectangular plate and a British flag spiked into one filet.

The menu also now boasts several well-executed old school classics, like the creamy, cool Pimento cheese served simply with a round of Club crackers (a buttery treat), or the Shotgun Shrimp, a nod to the shellfish prevalent in British pubs. The large shrimp come lightly breaded and served with a tangy, spicy cream sauce for dipping.

Let’s talk about that chicken tikka masala, a dish that might surprise some diners.
“If you have been to a pub, you know Indian food is a big part of the culture,” Miller said.

I love this addition to the Dell. Their chicken tikka masala is marked as hot on the menu, and it’s true: For the sake of comparison, it’s at least a level 5 on the Salween Thai scale.

Miller said they import all the spices from India for the dish, and while it’s not as complex as what you’d find at a purely Indian restaurant, it is a great facsimile of what you find in a London pub: thick, spicy sauce, tender chunks of chicken, plenty of heat and a pile of white rice at the side.

Miller plans to add more pub standards to the menu in the coming weeks, including a cheese toastie, French onion fries, chicken and chips, tomato on toast, sausage rolls, a lighter baked cod dish and a smoked salmon dip.

I liked all the cocktails we tried, as well as the sampling of fun Scotch that Wilson put together for us on the fly in the Pine Room.

The Beeswax old fashioned is a great twist on the classic, made with single malt Scotch, beeswax, black pepper and bitters. For those into a lighter drink, the Midnight Brambler has your back, with tequila, blackberry, mint, orange and citric acid along with an absolutely adorable gumball for garnish.

If you’re already into scotch, or simply into the idea of scotch, you must pay a visit to the Pine Room. Wilson is incredibly knowledgeable about the spirits industry. If you tell him what you like, or what you would like to try, he’ll serve you that along with something that you’ve never had before and will probably end up loving even more.

While the focus is mostly British, there’s a few American gems on the menu, too.

The Big Easy arrives absolutely loaded with pastrami. I mean an absolutely enormous pile of it. That’s on an onion bun topped with Dell sauce, Swiss cheese and a cool, crunchy coleslaw. Pastrami lovers will love this sandwich, and though I wished for a more interesting bun, I liked it, too.

I upgraded my side from Fries to a bowl of the smoked gouda mac and cheese, which is incredibly cheesy and rich. In this side dish, gouda is in charge. I wished for a touch more complexity, and my bowl definitely needed a hit of both salt and pepper.

Now, to the real hit: the Dell burger.

A double smash Wagyu patty is served with melted American cheese, onions and pickles, all on a super soft bun. A delicious, thick and spicy sauce comes alongside, and proved perfect for spreading on the burger or for dipping fries.

Miller said it all comes down to ingredients: beef from Jon’s Naturals, a high-quality potato bun and a house-made sauce.

In my years writing about food, I’ve seen plenty of attempts to revamp well known Omaha spots. I’ve seen many updates that just didn’t pass muster.

But what Miller and Wilson have done at The Dundee Dell absolutely works for me. It’s updated for a modern audience in a way that honors what it’s been in the past, smartly narrowing the focus and executing it well, while pushing it forward for a new century of diners.

The Big Story

Timber, Technology & Talent Coming to The Mercantile Near Downtown Riverfront

The north side of downtown’s ConAgra campus has been dramatically altered, but the changes are only beginning.

Hines, a Houston-based real estate firm, is developing The Mercantile, a 20-acre, mixed-use development on what had been a tired-looking corporate campus southeast of 10th & Farnam Street.

Construction is wrapping up on the project’s first phase, the “Brickline at the Mercantile.” That 5-story building will have 375 apartment units and 40,000 sq. ft. of retail space. Half of that retail space has been leased to three yet-to-be-announced restaurants owned by Omaha-based Flagship Restaurant Group.

The first apartments are expected to be ready for move-in by late third quarter this year. All of the new apartments will be ready by early next year.

The Mercantile’s next project will be a 7-story, modern timber building. The building will have a timber-based internal support structure instead of steel beams. Such buildings have become popular lately, because they are better for the environment, go up quickly and don’t cost any more than traditional construction, according to Adam Marek of Colliers.

Hines plans to call the building “T3,” which stands for “Timber, Technology and Talent.” Hines has already completed several other T3 buildings in cities such as Atlanta, Minneapolis and Toronto. The company has additional T3 buildings under development in several other major markets.

T3 Omaha will be constructed east of 8th Street between Farnam and Harney on a piece of land that kind of juts into the under-renovation Heartland of America Park. The building size will be somewhere between 225,000 and 275,000 sq. ft., according to Marek. The final size and configuration are dependent on what the future tenants need. Plans call for T3 to have three levels of underground parking. Construction will begin after the building is partially pre-leased.

Several additional buildings are planned at The Mercantile, but no construction timelines have been finalized. Other buildings include a 200-to-300-room hotel southeast of 10th & Harney Street as well as a 250-unit condo high rise between the Chamber Building and one of the remaining ConAgra office buildings. A second T3 building plus more apartment buildings are also on the drawing board.

Sarpy County plans to upgrade Werner Park to comply with Major League Baseball’s new standards. The $500,000 project includes a higher center-field wall, plus locker rooms for female staffers,an expanded weight room and a players’ lounge.

An historic building at 3301 Harney Street, designed by famed Omaha architect Thomas Kimball, is undergoing extensive renovations, according to Gabrielle Estivo of NAI NP Dodge. Built in 1925, the 7,500 sq. ft. building is made of masonry and heavy timber. It is located just south of Midtown Crossing.

Bennington Public Schools has been scouting areas to build a new high school, and at a special meeting of the board this week, the district agreed to purchase what was deemed the highest-rated available land in their search, according to WOWT. The $2.2 million for 78 acres will come out of 2020 school bond funds. Now the district will need to convince the public to approve another bond in November to pay for a school to put on the land located near 132nd Street and Rainwood Road.

Douglas County will commit $500,000 in American Rescue Plan Act funds to the renovation of Plaza de la Raza, an outdoor gathering space in South Omaha near 24th & N Street. Cost of the upgrade is expected to total $3 million.

The Omaha City Council is scheduled to vote at next week’s meeting on a proposal to build a new central library, according to News-Radio 1110 KFAB. The city is committing $20 million to the proposed building, which would be at 72nd and Dodge Streets. Heritage Omaha plans to raise another $120 million for the project. Construction could start as soon as next summer.

A new study shows Nebraska is the 18th hottest market for new residential construction despite home affordability in the U.S. falling to the lowest levels ever recorded after plummeting by 29 percent over the last year.

Boutique Home Plans released a study on the “New Residential Construction in America” using data from the U.S. Census Bureau on new building permits from 1986 – 2021.

Nebraska ranks 18th with 5.47 new residential building permits per 1,000 residents. New building permits in the U.S. have increased every year since 2009. Last year, the national rate was 5.2 permits per 1,000 residents, inching up towards the 5.6 average from 1986 to 2007, before it plummeted to 1.90 in 2009 during the Great Recession.

The five hottest housing markets are Utah, Idaho, Florida, South Carolina, and Colorado. The five slowest were Rhode Island, Connecticut, Illinois, New York, and West Virginia.

Leadership & Sales Insights for Ambitious People

Sponsored by MyStaff, Inc.

Compiled by Grow Omaha co-founJeff Bealsder and sales trainer 

Leadership & Management

Here are three good questions to ask your people during one-on-one meetings, according to author Kevin Davis:

1. What are you getting from me that you like and find helpful?

2. What are you getting from me that limits your effectiveness?

3. What are you not getting from me that would help you produce more? Why do you think that would help you at this time?

Leaders must resolve to address underperformance, according to business author Mike Weinberg.

Nothing good happens from ignoring underperformance. Yet, so many managers live as “prisoners of hope” just hoping that struggling employees will magically self-correct. Ignoring an employee’s underperformance is not only irresponsible and unfair to the failing worker and the business, it also damages culture and sends a really odd message to the rest of the team.

Weinberg says you should address it. “Double down on both accountability and coaching while getting commitments for more activity and results. Resolve to coach-up or coach-out!”


It’s important to avoid summer sales sluggishness. In some industries, summer is a very busy time, but for most sales professionals, the middle of summer brings a dip in sales activity. Many clients hold off on making decisions at this time of year. Even if a prospect is willing to make a decision, chances are they’re on vacation, at the lake, in the mountains or coaching a Little League team.

Here are a few things that can help you thrive during the summer while getting you ready for the busy time that will hit in a month or two:

Time Management – All professionals need to exercise good time management practices but it’s especially important for busy sales practitioners trying to balance work with all their summer activities.

I’ve noticed that even people who are highly successful and who happen to be going through a particularly busy time, STILL end up wasting time each day. If you watch the little five- and 10-minute time wasters, you just might find time to work in some calls to prospects.

Teamwork – Any time you can divide the labor, you give yourself more capacity. If it’s appropriate in your company, you might want to team up with another sales professional. If you have access to clerical support, find good and efficient ways to use it. I have met many a sales pro who has access to administrative support but chooses not to use it, saying something like, “Well, it’s faster if I just do it myself.” To me, that means the sales pro hasn’t spent time training the admin how his or her sales process works.

Another important part of establishing a good team is that you have people to cover for you while you’re on a summer vacation. This is an instance where the old saying, “Give in order to receive,” comes into play. Go out of your way to cover for colleagues and you’ll have some “money in the bank” so to speak.

Time Blocking – I’m a huge fan of time blocking, and it’s an important component of time management. Time blocking means you literally block out chunks of time on your calendar before a week even begins in which you will do nothing but reach out to prospects. It could be email. It could be in-person visits. It could be telephone calls. I find that telephone calls still tend to be the best use of prospecting time. The key to time blocking is to never cheat. Once a time block is on your schedule, you should stick to it no matter how tempting it is to do something else during that time.

Proactive Research – It’s especially important to do your prospect research during off hours. Since you have so much going on in your personal life during the summer, you don’t want to spend prime, daytime meeting/calling hours looking up prospects’ websites and LinkedIn profiles. Instead, do that during weekends, late nights or early mornings.

Persistent Effort – Just because fewer people are answering the phone in the summer doesn’t mean you have permission to slow down your business development efforts. Any time you take your foot off the prospecting gas pedal, you’ll pay the price 90 to 180 days later.

No matter how busy we get trying to balance work and summer fun, we still need to find a way to reach new prospects. It is shocking how fast a pipeline can drain. If you want to avoid the up-and-down, boom-bust business cycle that too many sales reps find themselves struggling with, you have to find the time, energy and enthusiasm to make one more call even when you’d rather be at the pool.
