The Hotel Captain Cook has four restaurants on property. The hotel is home to the Crow’s Nest, an establishment that boasts an impressive 10,000-bottle wine cellar. Perched atop Tower 3 with gorgeous views of both the Cook Inlet and the city, it’s the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion, enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail in the Lounge or simply dine on some the best food you’ll find in Anchorage offered by chef de cuisine Reuben Gerber, and his team. After studying organic farming in Israel, Gerber honed his techniques with a classical culinary education in California, France and Italy, and came to Alaska guided by his love of sustainable seafood, clean air and water, and a passion for the outdoors. His love of fresh, local produce and classical training are evident in dishes such as Alaskan King crab with roasted bone marrow and sea urchin, lamb osso bucco, and roasted Duroc pork belly.
If you prefer a more quick and casual meal, there are several options including the Whale’s Tail Bistro and Wine Bar, which offers downtown Anchorage’s only self-serve wine dispensing system with more than 30 wines to taste. This casual bistro offers grilled Kobe beef sliders, fresh Alaska oysters, salads, and small bites. The English-style pub, Fletcher’s, serves local seafood, handcrafted pizza and pasta, including a favorite housemade lasagna, with local microbrews. And The Café, which is located in the main lobby of The Hotel Captain Cook, is open for breakfast and lunch, with dinner available in the summer.
