Restaurant with Latino flair coming to Midtown Crossing

Restaurant with Latino flair coming to Midtown Crossing

The new hotel is set to open in March of 2021 in downtown Omaha.

Omaha native Joshua Martinez plans to bring a taste of his heritage and family recipes to Midtown Crossing, as he opens a new restaurant called Pa Más.

The name was inspired by his grandmother, whose had that nickname for so long he can't recall exactly how it came to be.

Martinez, formerly a manager at Cantina Laredo and other restaurants, hopes to start serving food and drinks in March in the 7,000-square-foot space previously occupied by Black Oak Grill, which closed in March.

Not every dish at Pa Más will have a Mexican influence, or taste like the enchiladas, pozole and carne asada Martinez grew up on. The menu will offer a variety of "street tacos," but some dishes will be more common to other Spanish language countries.   

Margaritas will be on tap, and Martinez said he's going for a tropical, beachside ambiance. The restaurant will feature an outdoor patio.

Martinez said he feels good about the concept, the location and what's ahead.

"We're going to take a leap of faith and create something new."
