But now Jeff Miner had his job back. The first thing he wanted to do was (to) go to the restaurant he liked best and eat a big bowl of oyster soup. Then he would call his wife Masa and tell her the news.

No need

Yes, no need "to" here. Because it  already has a "do" before the verb. According to the grammar rule, if no "do" appears before a verb in such a structure, the "to" needs to be added before the verb, and vice versa.
