ALASKA eats! (help with trip planning)

Thanks everyone, and especially both AnneInMpls & Repete for checking back in. Sounds like lots of great ideas for sure, and delicious spots for our itinerary. Do you think that one week in a rent-a-car is a good amount of time for that itinerary staying in the southcentral (Anchorage to Girdwood to Seward, Kenai Fjords National Park & Exit Glacier, Homer, Talkeetna, Anchorage) ? I can't wait!!

ALASKA eats! (help with trip planning)

Thanks everyone for the ideas and help. May it is! We'll have about the first 10 days in May, and I put together a preliminary itinerary, and would love your opinions on it. I suppose the best questions would be -- anything not worth being on the itinerary below? Anything blatantly missing? Anything I should know?! And of course, any exceptional food spots not to be missed! A huge thanks in advance!

Seward, Exit Glacier, Seward Hwy/Alaska Railroad
Homer
Kenia Fjords National Park
Anchorage
Talkeetna

and if time permits, Glacier Bay National Park, Sitka, Juneau and Skagway too perhaps.

Once again, I appreciate the help!

planning a 10 day trip to alaska. never been, and not even quite sure where to go. so i am here for help, calling all hounds who can offer some great advice on when to go -- either the last week in march or the first week in may. where to go, places absolutely not to be missed. and perhaps most importantly, once there .... where to eat!! thank you so much in advance!!

Dinner in the South End with hip New Yorker parents

hi ! I recently moved to Boston from New York and haven't been to many restaurants yet. Parents are coming in and we're going out on a Saturday night. Hamersley aside, I'm thinking Sage, Sibling Rivalry, Toro.... Ideal would be a pretty place, more young and trendy than formal, and certainly excellent food/presentation, perhaps outstanding desserts too, but hey, we can't have it all now can we?! thanks so much for your ideas!

While i've got your attention, i've got an enormous sweet tooth myself, LOVE dessert - anywhere I should defintely not miss in Boston for dessert?? thanks again!
