Fine dining with a view in Anchorage
Crow’s Nest restaurant, one of Alaska’s premier dining destinations, is located at The Hotel Captain Cook, in downtown Anchorage. The hotel, built after the devastating earthquake of 1964, remains a top choice for visitors and locals alike for its exceptional service and innovative cuisine cooked up by chef Reuben Gerber.
This establishment, perched atop Tower 3 of The Hotel Captain Cook, offers 360-degree views of the amazing Alaskan landscape, including the Chugach Mountains, the Cook Inlet, and Majestic Denali National Park. The lounge and full dinner menu include a wide range of regional specialties, with local wild seafood as a highlight. Start off with the delicious housemade charcuterie before delving into a dish of rabbit three ways or a pimenton-crusted rib eye. For those with a sweet tooth, you might consider starting with dessert to make sure you get to taste the champagne and caramel poached pear with gorgonzola gelato or classics such as crème brûlée and bananas Foster.
To accompany your meal, choose from an impressive 10,000-bottle wine cellar with an emphasis on treasures from France, Italy, and the Pacific Northwest. Check with the knowledgeable and passionate sommelier, Thomas Laret, about wine cellar tours, with optional cheese and wine pairings.
