The awesome day of touring ended with dinner at Seven Glaciers Restaurant at the Alyeska Ski Resort. This was the transportation that I neglected to mention to my mother:
And this was the view from the dining room:
So yeah. Good stuff.
The waiter insisted that my Appetizer & Dessert strategy would leave me hungry. “The chef portions the meals so that you can order a salad, an appetizer, an entree and a dessert.” So I ordered two appetizers and a dessert and still couldn’t eat half of my “Baked Alyeska”. I am told the steak was absolutely fabulous, though. Another thing: the waiter said that we had to order dessert when we ordered our entrees, claiming they take so long to prepare. I am sure there is some truth to Baked Alaska taking longer to prepare, but since it was obvious that my table would have ordered half as many desserts if we had waited, it seems like a marketing gimmick.
I am glad to have had the Seven Glaciers experience, but the next time I am in Anchorage, I will be returning to Moose’s Tooth.
