Well did Anchorage again...it's just not a good food town.  Drive an hour out though and the scenery is breathtaking.  I'll be back next month and then heading to Fairbanks in May.

I applaud your ubiquity.

Perils of self-employment.

I've been to Anchorage several times in the last year and going again next week. Mostly during off season. Agree that it is not a great food town.

 

I like the Moose's Tooth well enough. Particularly good with a mid-sized party. Ate there last summer in daylight at 10:30pm.

 

My favorite meal in Anchorage was probably at Spenard Road House: good food and decent cocktails.

 

If you hit it on a night when there is a decent special, F Street Station in downtown can be good. If not, just get the halibut sandwich and a drink at the bar. (I think this place gets completely overrun in the summer.)

I would love to go, but my work won’t take me there, and it’s hard to sell for a long weekend romantic break. (Not that I’ve tried.)

There must be ten men for every woman.  That sounds pretty romantic.

Oh Alaska is gorgeous. I have upcoming trips to Fairbanks and if I can make the numbers work (so it’s not more expensive for the client) I want to do the Anchorage to Fairbanks train at least once.

Thank you to SLBunge, F Street Station wasn’t even on my radar. When will you be there? I will be in Anchorage again beginning the 6th.

Darwin’s Theory has been my bar go-to but there’s no food there.

And Sneakeater is right about the ratio.

I'm there from 4/1 - 4/4. Potential uptick to 3-4 days per month if this trip goes well.

I would be bringing the “woman” and I do know she’d vote for Hawaii.
