Restaurants

Most restaurants fly in fresh salmon and halibut from the coast. Meat-and-potatoes main courses, pastas, pizzas, and pub fare dominate most menus, but an increasing number of establishments serving healthier fare, as well as ethnic restaurants (including more than a dozen Thai restaurants) have opened in and around Fairbanks in recent years. The food isn't the only thing full of local flavor: Alaskan pride runs strong, so expect to see snowshoes, bear hides, the state flag, and historic photos incorporated into restaurant decor. As for attire, even in the most elegant establishments Alaskans sometimes wear sweats or Carhartts.
