Thirty Six Bistro

Emerging as one of Anchorage’s most acclaimed new restaurants, Thirty Six Bistro is a collaboration between two decorated Anchorage chefs dedicated to handcrafting cuisine with local, Alaska ingredients. Working hand-in-hand with Alaska farmers, ranchers, and fisherman, the restaurant incorporates fresh seafood, summer fruits and veggies, and fine cuts of meat into each meal selection.

Having one of the best pastry chefs in the business doesn’t hurt either. Bread is made fresh daily and desserts like delectable bread pudding and towering slices of fine cheesecake offer an enticing end to your meal. Stop in for a granola parfait made with fresh fruits, yogurt, and house-made granola, or crunchy, cornflake-dusted French toast, a great meal with a fresh twist on the traditional breakfast.

Local Favorites: Wild Alaskan Salmon & Halibut; Thick Cut Bone-in Pork Chop
