Described as the most fashionable restaurant in town by Frommer’s, Sacks Cafe and Restaurant pilots palates through ever-evolving lunch and dinner menus of globally-influenced contemporary Alaskan cooking. The team of chefs concoct predinner treats such as the baked brie en croûte with sherry-poached apricots, caramelized walnuts, and fresh fruit ($12), and fresh Alaskan king salmon swims amid tempura rolls ($14). Currently, lunch features the reindeer polish sausage in sandwich form ($11.75), or as part of an eclectic jambalaya with clams, tiger prawns, Alaskan halibut, sockeye salmon, spicy tomato sauce, and jasmine rice ($16). Dinner takes on chicken and sea scallops, with snow peas, udon noodles, ginger cream sauce, black bean salsa, pickled ginger, and mushrooms ($19/$26).
Thursday night jazz lends an auditory component to Sacks Cafe’s aura of insouciant play—an atmosphere well suited to exploring the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence of the wine list, with more than 120 wines from around the world. A changing collection of paintings by area artists hangs from Sacks Cafe’s walls, and the restaurant’s marigold-colored exterior, accented by cobalt blue signage and blossoming potted plants, entices hungry locals and confused hummingbirds.

About Sacks Cafe And Restaurant
Frommer’s described the food at Sacks Cafe And Restaurant as “terrific,” saying, “the cuisine defies categorization but is consistently interesting and creative.” It’s an impressive achievement for an eatery that switches up dinner options on a daily basis, offering local-seafood entrees and plenty of vegetarian and meaty choices.
Diners perched at the tables or tapas bar also feast on weekend brunch options such as poached eggs on crab and scallop cakes and omelets clutching tiger prawns or a filet mignon burger with bacon. Mimosas with freshly squeezed orange juice and freshly popped champagne make getting out of bed almost as easy as not getting out of bed.
