The Crow's Nest - Anchorage, Alaska


5th Wedding Anniversary

 On June 21st, we celebrated FIVE years of being married!!  Every year is special to us, but this year was particularly meaningful as we reflected on our marriage, and everything we've been through in the last five years together.  It has been such an incredible, memorable and adventurous five years.  Things have seldom been easy for us, but this time we've been spending in Alaska has been a time of renewal and refreshment that we desperately needed.  For our celebration, we were fortunate to have my in-laws in Alaska for a visit, and they were happily willing to hang out with Zion so we could enjoy some alone time.  We put on our fancy date clothes (after dusting them off, haha) and headed to The Crow's Nest, a fine dining restaurant on the 20th floor of the Captain Cook Hotel in downtown Anchorage.
 First Course: Market Fresh Oysters // Tabby's Crabby Patty
Crow's Nest Merus & Marrow
 Second Course: Merus & Marrow // Thai Yellow Curry, Coconut & King Crab Soup
Crow's Nest New Zealand Elk Rack
 Third Course: Alaska Salmon // New Zealand Elk Rack
 Our meal was simply exquisite!  We loved and devoured every morsel as we watched the sunset break through an otherwise dreary day over the bay.  The service at the Crow's Nest is top notch!  We were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived.  The hardest part of being there was narrowing down our choices of what we wanted to enjoy.  After our meal, we sipped on fresh brewed coffee - which was served with a variety of items, including chocolate sprinkles...yum!
Crow's Nest Banana Split
 As if the meal couldn't get better, we indulged in the most decadent Banana Split & Poached Pear desserts we've ever had.  Unbelievably delicious - in fact just looking at this picture makes my mouth salivate!  We always like to guess the price on a meal like this, and we were pleasantly surprised when the check came.  We were betting on a much higher price tag for such a fine dining experience.
 We left with full tummies and hearts blessed by this milestone in our marriage.  Cheers to many more!!
