Kriner's Diner $7-$18 per plate 2409 C St. 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday Fresh off a review of classic Anchorage restaurant Arctic Roadrunner, I thought I'd try to hit something different and innovative. On a frigid Saturday afternoon, however, I found myself visiting another renowned source of comfort food, albeit on my first visit to a relatively new establishment in the city's dining scene.

by Channel 2 News staff Saturday, February 6, 2010 ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Top chefs in Anchorage put their game face on Saturday, all hoping to win the title of best overall soup. The Anchorage Cabaret, Hotel, Restaurant and Retailers Association, or CHARR, held Souper Bowl II at Chilkoot Charlie's. Chefs brought in their tastiest recipes and left it up to the people of Anchorage to decide their favorite. All of the benefits will go to the Anchorage Hospitality Foundation, a non-profit that helps chronic inebriates in the community.

Every year tucked beneath the range of the Chugach Mountains, the forest sings a different kind of tune. Four decades ago, a handful of local artists started that tune and got together to sell their work. The Girdwood Forest Fair brings hundreds of people together to enjoy the local flavor over the course of a weekend. The community falls under the municipality of Anchorage and is about a 40-minute drive away from Alaska's biggest city. "I don't think there's no one in business in Girdwood that doesn't benefit from this event," said Terri Adkins, Girdwood Forest Fair organizer.

Tina Fey and Steve Carell are the Fosters, but have become the Tripplehorns in order to get a table at The Claw, an exclusive seafood restaurant. After a couple glasses of wine and halfway through dinner, they get a visit from a couple of mean fellas who escort them into the back alley, trying to recover what's theirs. Being the Tripplehorns isn't fun anymore. The couple -- who wanted a night to remember and is getting it -- manage a temporary getaway. They make frequent calls to the babysitter who keeps jacking up her fee as the night grows later.

For close to a year, architects hired by the city have been working to develop a concept to make Ship Creek more attractive to tourists. Some of the plans include a blueprint to develop the creek into a full water front area with full access to the public. The revamp would also allow more room for businesses, hotels, and restaurants, along with a pedestrian-friendly area with bridge walkways. "Competition is good because that makes everyone step up," Patrick Hoogerhyde, co-owner of The Bridge, a restaurant located at Ship Creek, said.

Olive Garden $7-$22 per plate 1186 N. Muldoon Rd. 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday 907-333-1300 Usually it's hard to review a chain restaurant, precisely because it's part of a chain: what distinguishes the location you're at from the one across town? In this case, however, there's never been a second restaurant across town, or even across the state; comparing it to another location would require a plane ticket Outside.
