Residing in Anchorage’s old Willow Lake Tavern building, Selena’s serves up a fusion of Creole and Sicilian cuisine. If the food doesn’t lure you in, the atmosphere will, with a spacious wraparound patio for al fresco dining during warm months and a cozy indoor dining room with a charming fireplace.
Highlights of this pizza joint include an old car converted into a table, the Philly cheese steak, large slices of thin crust pizza, and deep-fried Oreos. A favorite among bar hoppers, Spinelli’s is open till at 5 a.m. all week in one of the city’s busiest bar corridors, and offers delivery until 4:30 a.m.
The menu at this Westport-area eatery is heavily peppered with just-like-Mom-used-to-make favorites like meatloaf, pot pie and fried chicken. Try the chicken livers or fried green tomatoes served with plate-scraping “creek” sauce.
