The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Winter in Lake Placid


2. Where to Eat
Start the evening with an Ubu Ale, an English-style microbrew made at the Lake Placid Pub & Brewery. Watch the sun set over the lake from the second-floor terrace.

Grab a soup and sandwich for lunch, or wait for the sophisticated wine-pairing menu for dinner at the Brown Dog Café & Wine Bar (2409 Main St.; 518-523-3036). The duck quesadillas are excellent, and the rear tables overlook Mirror Lake.

For a blowout celebration, head to the best upscale restaurant in the region: Kanu. Chef Brian Moyers has serious downstate experience from places like Nobu and Tribeca Grill. But at Kanu, he shies away from the rarefied and obscure, preparing hearty but complex dishes like Duo of Long Island Duck and a grilled rack of lamb — perfect food for the Great Camps atmosphere of the stunning dining room.
