vanilla sugar & warm doc's maple syrup
I was recently stranded in New York (thanks a LOT, Incompetent American Airlines) and Landmarc was the saving grace of the whole ordeal. We had seven hours to kill, so we were going to eat!
I am just going to say that I was ignorant to Landmarcs' wiles before this visit, and that I am now feverishly looking up ways of making caneles or to engineer a home version of their pain perdu. I am pretty sure it cannot be done at home, but I will try my darnedest! We also enjoyed their bone marrow appy, a side if hash browns, a breakfast platter (it was noon in Vancouver time and we had been awake for nearly a day and a half), as well as the gnocchi with bacon and peas. Breakfast hit the spot. The pain perdu and hash browns were delectable - both had the perfect hit of butter and the exciting nuances of texture. The bone marrow was decadent. Subtlety smokey, rich, buttery and served with onion confit and olive tapenade. I thought the gnocchi was beautifully rich, smokey, and comforting, however my co worker thought it was on the salty side and needed a twist of lemon. I ordered a mimosa and the other two each selected a local beer to go with their meal. All were complementary to the meals.
Service was quick and friendly, including a luggage check. The room was bustling with warm wood decor.
If I ever planned to be in NY on my own will, I would definitely orchestrate a trip to Landmarc.
My last breakfast in New York, le tear.
This place was empty sans a boy and his dad a couple of booths over. How? Apparently nobody else was getting off work or going to the airport.
My lovely companion moaned like french whore as she devoured her salmon benedict. I got to play lumberjack trying to figure out how to fall my tree-sized pain perdu. And just for good measure (and the needed energy to endure so many smiling faces at JFK) I ordered a side of hash browns. BEST BREAKFAST POTATOES I'VE EVER HAD!
Whenever I'm feeling unimaginative for brunch or dinner, this is my go to place. It's not because it serves mindblowing food but that it's easy to get in and fun to people watch. And because I can shop at Jcrew afterward. I took my parents here and they loved it. It's all about cushy booth seats and views for parents.
I think their lunch and dinner menu is way better than their brunch (breakfast sandwich at McDonald's is 1/4 of the price and x 4 tastier than the sandwich here). They have some interesting items like eggs served in a tomato and red wine sauce, pain perdu (which is really just french toast), but none of the brunch dishes are really that unique.
Lunch and dinner is pricey but I guess it's solid food and comfortable ambiance that makes it more of an experience. Their variety of mussels spans across different broths, and is pretty good, and their burger and steaks are great as well.
dinner better than brunch
view = good
price = $$$
Came for brunch twice. The omelette reminded me of the ones you get on airplanes. Almost certainly made from powder or liquid eggs. served lukewarm. overpriced. Service was fine and my friend's Pain perdu (giant french toast loaf) was delicious.
Landmarc has been my favorite brunch restaurant for a couple of years now. I have been on a search for a restaurant that competes; sadly, so far, there are lots of other great restaurants but none seem to match when it comes to the consistency of the flavors and deliciousness. You absolutely must try the Pain Perdu, it is out of this world. It is rich, flavorful, and with a touch of liquor to heighten it's deliciousness.
While the Pain Perdu is amazing, my go-to is the Eggs Florentine. I love spinach and am more of a savory brunch person. Their shredded potatoes alone are worth ordering the dish for!
Part of me has been unwilling to share this information because I don't want the wait time to get longer. I know, I know, terrible. GO. ENJOY! I know you will!
I was recently here for an event that was hosted by MasterCard & Priceless NYC, which was a Build Your Own Gingerbread House event, which was hosted in Landmarc's private dining room.
On your way to the private dining room, you pass through the bar area and main dining room, which was absolutely packed at 11am on a Saturday morning. The servers was definitely hustling and bustling around.
As the gingerbread houses were being built in one half of the dining room, servers were moving throughout with hors d'oeuvres, which included things like mini chicken pot pies and deviled eggs, all of which were yummy. I confess wholeheartedly to also dipping into and eating the candy that was meant for decorating the houses - but I think a lot of others were doing that as well :)
In addition to the small plates being passed around, there was also a small bar station set up, with champagne, orange juice, sparkling and still water. I'm sure there were plenty of other drinks as well. I had several mimosas and each subsequent one contained more champagne and less orange juice!
After the gingerbread house making event had ended, the garage door that divides the dining room in half was raised, letting us move into the other half of the dining room to sit down for brunch. Each table was already filled with food for the kids in attendance - mac n' cheese, chicken fingers, french fries and mini burgers. I tried some of each and all were pretty yummy, tho the burgers were just average.
For the adults in attendance, they had a menu to look at. Everyone received a salad of mixed field greens with a sherry vinaigrette, which was very freshly made. I'm not usually a huge fan of vinaigrettes, but this one was sweet and mild.
For our main course, there was a choice of Eggs Benedict w/a Ham & Hollandaise sauce, Pain Perdu w/Vanilla Sugar & Maple Syrup, or Seared Wild Sockeye Salmon w/roasted winter veggies & truffle butter. All tables also received roasted potatoes, sauteed spinach and bacon.
I ended up choosing the Pain Perdu, which was beastly. It was seriously huge. THe outer crust of the bread was a bit thick tho and didn't really vibe well with the dish, but the inner portion of the bread was soft, sweet and savory. You could tell that prior to being cooked, it had been soaked in goodness. Add a bit of maple syrup to that and yum! As for my girlfriend, she had the salmon, which was delicious, but a bit familiar. You wouldn't go wrong with it tho.
As if the passed hors d'oeuvres and brunch wasn't enough, hold up - dessert comes next and you haven't seen anything quite like this spread. It consisted of cotton candy, brownies, lemon meringue pie, chocolate moose, creme brulee, blueberry cobbler and a few other items that I didn't try, lest I burst from the seams.
All in all, if this was a sampling of what's offered on their general menu, it was really good and worth returning for.
2 words: Pain Perdu (fancy way to say french toast) is excellent here. Despite the location and atmosphere, the price is not that bad and reasonable. Never had to wait, it's a nice relaxed space to have a good brunch without the hassle.
The Pain Perdu is up there in the french toast this city has to offer. The omelette on the other hand was quite awful. And the coffee is overpriced and not great. just a warning...
I came here for breakfast with the BF a couple of months ago. I had been going through a french toast craze after having just returned from San Francisco where they seem to have amazing french toast everywhere. So when I mentioned that I wanted really, really good french toast, this is where my BF brought me. Ordered the pain perdu (french toast), and when it came out I was slightly confused. This is not like any french toast you've ever had before. Its a huge, unsliced portion of brioche. Like, literally the length of my hand. And the outside is so toasted it looks almost charred. And then you cut into it and its just amazing. You can actually see the vanilla bean specks! Its just superb. I don't even remember what my boyfriend ate because my eyes never really left my own plate. Can't wait to come back here for this again!
Landmarc was our Mother's Day destination and a perfect choice. We have been there many times since it works for us, generally a party of 3 generations with different ideas of a good meal and the atmosphere in which to enjoy it. The location in the Time Warner Center, a wonderland of interesting shops, restaurants, cafes and spaces, is perfect for that after dinner stroll. What struck me in particular on this visit was that the wait staff and management are smart. There was a service glitch and only one of us was served an entrée although 3 out of the 6 of us ordered variations of this same thing. After the waitress got the rest of our food, she offered complimentary desserts all around and added the Pain Perdu, an amazing French toast on steroids that we were admiring as other diners received their meals. Although my husband was planning his lunch entrée selection around getting pastries next door, he was able to more than satisfy his sweet tooth without traveling to another location. Love this place!
This review is for their Pain Perdu, which is nothing less than phenomenal. I'd never had it before (how is this possible?!) and I have to say it goes on the list of one of the best things I've ever eaten. Pain Perdu is French toast on another level. It makes American French toast look bad, no matter how good you've had it before.
The rest of my brunch crew had omelets, eggs benedict, etc. but I was too wrapped up in my own personal heaven to bother with asking if they liked their dishes or not. They looked good. But not as good as mine (muah hah hah haaa).
I highly recommend hitting this place up if only to try this dish. Thank me later. :)
We had brunch here, probably the most expensive brunch but pretty worth it too!
My husband got the french toast, I think it was the pain perdu, this thick piece of soaked yummy bread that was out of this world!
2 of us got the eggs en meurette, which had bacon, onions, mushrooms in a red wine reduction sauce - so YUM!
We totally want to go back and try other items on their lunch menu, especially the mussels everyone keeps talking about!
This review is solely for Landmarc's brunch.
I'm very tempted to give this place 4 stars simply because of the pain perdu. Imagine the a french toast-ish concoction of a breakfast pastry, with a golden buttery crust on the outside with a soft custardy center. Delicious.
Yet the rest of the menu isn't very inventive and somewhat boring actually. The food was all-around tasty though and the cotton candy at the end was a friendly touch.
Good place, still not in my top tier of places to go for brunch in the city though. Expected a bit more from Marc Murphy, one of the less douchey judges on Chopped.
I've been here for brunch and now dinner. Service is always polite, and the food is good. I've found that the slightly more special items on the menu are pretty yummy bets (e.g., roasted marrow, grilled pork chop with seasonal accompaniments, pain perdu, eggs en meurette). (I'd pass on the Landmarc egg sandwich that seems like a thrifty, simple, and tasty option, but it falls pretty flat.) ...Actually, I guess I like some of the usual suspects as well, such as the pasta specials and the mussels. Overall good eats, but for pasta I would still favor Marc's Food Network colleague Scott Conant's restaurant Scarpetta over Landmarc.
Please note that the brunch crowd is very kid-friendly, which can be a plus or minus depending on your particular kid-situation. (The area outside of the restaurant in the lobby often resembles a stroller parking lot during weekend brunch service.)
This is a pretty good place for brunch. Good mix of locals and tourists, the brunch fare is pretty standard, and prices aren't too bad given the location.
I had the Pain Perdu, which is basically a fancy way for saying french toast. The only difference is that they use old baguettes instead of toast.
The portion was HUGE. Two people could've easily shared it. Quite frankly, I don't know how I got myself to finish it, but I somehow did. I probably won't be back here since it's so far from where I live, but if I ever find myself around the area on a Sunday morning, this place would definitely near the top of my list for brunch at.
Came here for a brunch double date last weekend based on a recommendation by the other guy joining us. Evidently, he goes there all the time for the Pain Perdu which I have to say is quite good. It's like Flan meets French Toast. I'm not much for sweets in the morning so I went for the Landmarc Breakfast Sandwich w/ sausage. I really liked that it came with melted gruyere cheese which was a nice change of pace from the usual cheddar or American. The eggs were cooked nicely, the sausage which was cooked into the eggs was good and the English muffin it came on (possibly Thomas's) was unoffensive. Still prefer the similar sandwich at Clinton Street Baking Company based on the fact that it comes on an amazing biscuit. The hash browns were good once I added a little salt and pepper. The restaurant itself was really nicely designed and quite large. A cool place to come for brunch if you live in the area or have friends visiting from out of town.
They have great service, awesome atmosphere, a terrific view of Columbus Circle and the food is excellent. I am a huge fan of their french onion soup, cheese burgers, and creamed spinach. I also love the deserts here as they have a desert sampler featuring all 6 of their desserts (blueberry crumble is my favorite) as well as great one-scoop ice cream cones - the coffee ice cream is my fave. All deserts are on the small side but so is the price so you shouldn't feel guilty if you want to order the sampler or just a couple desserts.
Aslo a great place for breakfest - really tasty dishes and I highly recommend the Pain Perdu w/ vanilla sugar and warm maple syrup - it's huge and melts in your mouth!! I've also had their egg sandwich and eggs benedict - both were awesome.
We came for brunch with our 2 kids. It was pretty good food, very family friendly (lots of strollers outside and a kids menu) and a great location.
I had the pain perdu which was Huge and super tasty. It must've been half a loaf of bread soaked in vanilla egg custardy goodness, yum. My husband had the croque monsiuer which was also good. My son had the kids green eggs and ham (pesto scramble) which was fun. The lemonade, however, was disgusting. It must've been from a mix it was so terrible. But for the $4 they charged, I would've expected freshly squeezed.
Overall we had a decent meal and were glad to find a restaurant with high quality food that welcomes children.
Go again? Yes, I'd be curious to try their dinner and would go back for brunch again.
Don't let the swarm of strollers outside this place scare you. Yes, the place is teeming with little kids and babies and their UWS / UES mommies on the weekends, but it's a great brunch spot due to the following reasons:
1) Ease of scoring a table without much of a wait... they do not take reservations but the place is so freakin' big with tons of tables (place sits 300!), not to mention decent amount of competitive traffic going to Bouchon on the same floor, that it's rarely a hassle to get a table (esp for 2 since there are lots of families / groups of 4 or more here). if there is a wait, easy to kill some time shopping in the TWC.
2) Pain perdu (french toast)... an amazingly thick piece of super duper thick toast crunchy on the outside, but so soft in the inside, that is simply delicious, esp with a bit of the accompanying warm maple syrup.
3) Proximity to Bouchon Bakery... for what else, but the heavenly french macaroons. there is probably no way i could make a visit to Landmarc, let alone the TWC, w/o grabbing a few macaroons.
Landmarc also offers other delicious stuff on the menu as well... i.e., omelette, eggs in meurette, and the landmarc egg sandwich. Prices are decent and the service has been pretty friendly / chipper (the way I prefer it for wknd brunches) in my several visits there.
The downside is that the place has an industrial, dark and cold feel to it... you probably would never know if it was a beautiful sunny day outside when you're in here given their decor, somber color palette, and huge metal pillars in odd spots blocking out views and natural sunlight. But you know what... a good brunch spot with minimal wait and quality food in this part of town is a rarity... so I'll take it!
