Concierge.com's insider take:
Simon & Seaforts, located at the edge of downtown Anchorage, may bill itself as a saloon and grill, but that undersells the locals' favorite date-night restaurant. True, the interior isn't too fancy (wooden tables, booths, and old-fashioned chandeliers), and the menu is one of the largest and most reasonably priced in the city—yet the food is a standout. The chef's simple, elegant preparations of dishes such as Asiago-almond–crusted scallops in a Champagne beurre blanc, steamed Bering Sea king crab legs, and seafood linguine allows the fresh ingredients to speak for themselves. If you're tired of fish, this is also the best place in Anchorage to get a steak.—Edward Readicker-Henderson
