Within driving distance of Anchorage is the Alyeska Resort, home to the Seven Glaciers restaurant.
The restaurant is at the top of the resort cable car ride and includes the ride when you have reservations. Since Keri and I were going all the way to Alaska to try it, we decided to go all out.
We went for the chef’s tasting menu. It was multiple courses of deliciousness with an amazing view. The restaurant is surrounded in glass windows, displaying the glaciers that make up the name of the restaurant.
I just ran into someone taking a trip to this area, so this is for you!
The first thing I noticed was the wine selection. I was happy with Paradux and then my eyes fell on one of my favorites:
It’s been a little bit since I’ve been there, so I can’t go into too much detail other than it was delicious (and I was a little drunk off the wine pairings by the end). I ended up breaking down and getting a glass of the Violetta at the end too, which didn’t help. 😉
An amuse-bouche of seared wagu beef.
A salad with beets two ways:
A seared scallop and fried oyster:
Duck over ramen soup:
Turnip stuffing and sliced turnips with wagu steak:
A savory custard with sea salt on top as a palate cleanser.
I capped this off with a glass of Violetta from Grgich, thankful I had a designated driver!
