The Baranof is a crusty old diner that feels like it’s been open forever, complete with an awesome nautical-themed dive bar that’s open from 6 a.m. until 2 o’clock in the morning every damn day. The food is unexpectedly good, especially the clam chowder and the roasted-turkey sandwich. Saturday-morning bingo in the bar is completely fun and totally surreal (sample overheard discussion: “Did Bonnie actually get arrested for threatening a clerk with a box cutter, or is this bullshit?”).
