Ethel Mae's Cajun Cafe reopens in midtown
By Sarah Baker Hansen
WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER


Ethel Mae's Cajun Cafe is open inside Louis Grill and Bar, at 52nd and Northwest Radial Highway.

The restaurant recently reopened in a new midtown space after closing its North Omaha location, at 24th and Patrick Streets. Ethel Martin opened her business there in November.

The relocated restaurant serves bar food, like burgers, but transplanted some of its former soul food menu to the new location. It's also now serving steak, including strip, rib eye and T-bone.

The restaurant moved because the old location wasn't getting enough business. The new, higher-visibility spot means that more people stop in.

"When people at the bar get thirsty, they get hungry," Martin said. "And when they get hungry, vice versa."

The restaurant is at 5702 NW Radial Highway, inside Louis Bar. The phone number is 402-215-4366.
