Pepe’s Turnagain House
Owners Pepe and Kay Cebrian, the hosts at Pepe’s Turnagain House, serve up a blend of Spanish, Mediterranean, and American flavors accompanied by sweeping views of Turnagain Arm and the surrounding peaks. A profile of the artistically inclined Pepe by the Turnagain Times reveals he was born in Madrid, Spain, and learned much of his culinary know-how there. “I consider myself a painter,” he said, “but people tell me I’m a very good cook,” just as Einstein considered himself a pinochle player while others called him an eminent scientist. Exotic spices blend with Alaskan seafood and other fresh ingredients on this upscale restaurant's menu, whereas the wood-paneled walls and rustic decor envelop diners in coziness.
