Block 16 is a locally-owned restaurant that’s hell-bent on creating fresh, fun, street-style food. We work hard to source your meals from local, humanely-raised and preservative-free ingredients as often as we can. We buy quality ingredients from companies that share a similar philosophy.

Our dishes are inspired by other cultures and traditions. Our compulsive eating habits have led us across Nebraska, Canada, the United States and abroad. Basically, we just can’t stop eating!

Block 16 is operated by a talented, friendly and dedicated team of culinary professionals. Paul Urban and Jessica Joyce Urban are the co-chefs and co-owners.  Each of our team members play a crucial role in the success, creativity, drive and happiness of this business. We’re blessed to be located in Omaha and part of the city’s culinary growth.
