Carmela’s Bistro & Wine Bar has been in Lincoln’s quaint Pioneer Woods Shopping Center since 2008. It is truly the love child of its owner, Marci Hanshaw. Her vision of a sophisticated-yet-cozy eatery and bar is alive at Carmela’s, and it shines through with a European-inspired elegance combined with the charm of an American bistro. The walls are full of playful wine-loving sayings and photos of Hollywood’s most iconic faces from the 50s and 60s, such as Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, and Johnny Cash. Carmela’s Bistro is located at 4141 Pioneer Woods Dr., you can make reservations now on their website or by calling (402) 489-0005.
