Because at least 80 percent of Harvest’s ingredients are sourced from local farms and producers, the only things that stay the same at this trendy new place are the seasonal changes. But with entrées like buttermilk fried chicken and smoked pork shoulder as the backbone of the menu, you can’t go wrong.
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.
The beer selection across the pond is building up. This New Albany spot has eight craft brews on rotation, including specialty house beers. The food is inspired by another across-the-pond institution — the upscale bar food of the British gastropub, that is. Try the bourbon beer cheese with your pint.
Along with tasty soups and sandwiches, you’ll find delicious sushi rolls and top-notch smoothies, as well as a large selection of low-carb entrées. Try the unique tofu eggless salad, signature Rainbow Rito (a vegetarian burrito) or test from a menu that varies daily.
This wildly (excuse the pun) popular breakfast and lunch spot is an ode to the egg. The dining room features egg art and even egg-shaped salt and pepper shakers. The creatively titled offerings include “Violet You’re Turning Violet” blueberry pancakes and “Crispy Hippie Crunch” granola waffles.
Located in its original 1937 building, Joe’s serves comfort food in the form of burgers, fried fish, cheese sticks and nachos. Open until 4 a.m. daily, the restaurant can accommodate late-night diners and large parties.
