Some would say food is an art form, with each dish representing a canvas for skilled chefs to weave together disparate elements to concoct works that appeal not just to the eyes but all five senses. Here in Alaska, you won’t find much in the way of such thought-out masterpieces outside the sphere of fine dining, as most meals you encounter are more likely to be described as drab or uninspired.

It’s unfortunate that not every restaurant grasps the importance of visual stimuli when it comes to food, but a breath of fresh air has emerged in Latin restaurant Palmeira, which looks to buck the trend of offering up plates in various shades of brown by serving food as vibrant and captivating as the tropics from which they derive inspiration.
