The Garden of Eatin' Spenard, Alaska-looking for info

ohiocyndi Jul 4, 2008 06:22 AM

My great aunt and uncle were the original owners of the Garden of Eatin' in Spenard, Alaska. I am searching for articles, pictures or anything related to their place. The last I heard was that it was an Italian restaurant but know nothing else than that.
Any info would be greatly appreciated :)

      I worked at the Garden of Eatin'' in Spenard, Ak in the summer of 1967 or 1968. Hans Kirchener and Jerri Kirchener were the owners. I'm not sure I have the spelling of the last name correct. It was a very popular, quaint, fun place for dinner and we were packed every night. It was only open in the summer and they had been in the restaurant business for years. If you have more questions please feel free to ask!

        Great place in the 70's and 80's. I'm coming back in 2015 with 5 buddies. Darrell Kvasager
