Anchorage: Big City in a Big State

From Ocean to Table

Bonney said although he’s not a chef, Alaska’s natural bounty makes it easy for him to whip up delicious local meals.

“All of us have an abundance of fresh salmon, halibut and king crab in our freezers, and with a little salt, pepper, olive oil and a squirt of lemon — voila!” he said. “And to the surprise of many, we have an incredible agricultural area nearby where cabbage, lettuce, carrots, potatoes and all sorts of vegetables just go nuts in the long daylight of summer.”

Visitors might find that the dining scene is also a little nuts. Foodies indulge not only in the freshest seafood but also in a wide variety of international, award-winning eateries.

“We even have a great Himalayan restaurant,” Bonney said.

Beer lovers can also rejoice. Anchorage is home to seven breweries, and these establishments are touted to offer some of the finest dining in the area.
