OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An Omaha restaurant says it's sending over a steak dinner to an American aid worker recovering from Ebola.

The Nebraska Medical Center says Dr. Rick Sacra will receive a steak dinner Tuesday night along with his wife and son. It will include a filet and baked potato.

The Omaha World Herald reports ( ) Gene Dunn, the owner of Gorat's Steak House, offered the meals through one of Sacra's physicians. The hospital organized for them to be sent over Tuesday.
