This out-of-the-way restaurant provides a respite after a summertime hike or wintertime ski in nearby Kincaid Park. Chef and owner Al Levinsohn worked his way up through some of Alaska's finest restaurants, and the experience shines through in his diverse and creative menu. The upscale setting is lively, with old-time jazz spilling from the speakers and the buzz of conversation about you. Meals are artistically presented. If traveling solo, consider taking a seat at the
wine bar, where you can sample a microbrew or vintages from around the globe. The menu, with a focus on Alaska regional cuisine, seafood, and game meats, changes every few weeks. Menu mainstays include filet mignon, fresh Alaskan salmon or halibut, and a rich seafood gumbo. The chocolate bourbon soufflé dessert is well worth the 15-minute wait.
