eat meat - and go away hungry? – the restaurant is trendy in that industrial tribeca way (if you like that sort of thing), and service is good. the best thing this restaurant offers is meat - any meat - and its side dishes. i made the mistake of ordering the "pan seared" monk fish, which actually tasted more pan fried, and was dry around the edges. it came on top of grease-soaked watercress and fried potatoes, so i felt that basically my attempt to eat a less-fatty fish dish was fruitless.
if i am going to eat that much grease, i want it to be from meat. and landmarc's meat is good. had a taste of ribeye, which was a bit fatty but i love that part. ate several helpings of the steak tartare, which is well worth the amount of lipitor you need to take as a result of consuming massive quantities of red meat. even the bone marrow appetizer was good.
the sides were good, as well - swiss chard and ratatouille are worth ordering.
what i didn't like: it was quite dark, so feel free to go there if you don't want to be recognized, or want more flattering lighting to cover up age or acne. i also HATE when restaurants give you a ridiculously small portion for big prices - it's like a freaking mini cooper. with the exceptions of the bone marrow, entrees and wine (ha.), this was the case. the fois gras terrine was delicious, but it can easily be called "wafer thin". the salmon carpaccio was okay, but wouldn't fill even a quarter of a bagel. and the sides...while delicious, they were about the size of a cup of soup - hardly enough for two people, which is robbery considering their cost. and don't get me started on the desserts. one person ordered the tiramisu, to which i said, "that's funny. i'm done and don't remember eating yet." maybe this restaurant would be better suited to los angeles? however, everyone there swore off red meat in the 1980s.
Perfect Neighborhood Dinner Spot – 6 of us went for dinner at 7:30 on a Wednesday night. It was a full house: a little warm but not loud. For starters the mussels with shallots, wine, and parsley were delicious as were the goat cheese profiteroles and the calamari. The olive oil is awesome if you enjoy rosemary. All members of the party enjoyed their main dishes which ranged from monkfish to hangar steak to the risotto. I was impressed with the fact the risotto was not over-salted as tends to be the fate of this dish usually. My side of haricot verts was perfect, had a great crunch and flavor. Desserts were on the smallish side but for $3 we had no complaints. The cones were a perfect after dinner cap. Very reasonable wine list made for an easy on the wallet dinner...2 bottles, apps, main courses, and dessert for all was a mere $57 pp. Definitely recommend Landmarc.
tasty fare but pricey for brunch! – This was a mother's day special. Tho they didn't have any special mother's day menu. all the food was prepared well, salads, the french toast, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. But we sat upstairs where their a/c was not operating (under repair) so was quite hot/humid. For the prices set here, you would think they would go to any lengths to get their equipment repaired to ensure customer comforts. Most expensive brunch I have had in a while. I would recommend Thalia's in theater district for 1/2 the price with their own unique menu. French Toast was delicious! Don't order bacon as this was like bacos - hard to chew canadian style chunk bacon! SUMIT: Visit at least once, tho didn't have the pleasure of dinner here. Good choice for brunch but be prepared to open your wallet!
OUTSTANDING FOOD and would go again, (but...) – The food at Landmarc is some of the best you'll find anywhere. Everything is so flavorful, right down to the dipping oil for bread with fragrant rosemary. Nothing is bland or just "ok", everything you taste has "umph"!
Just one or two caveats....
-Under entrees they have a list of various red-meat steaks listed on the menu and one specifically listed as "Portobello Mushroom" for $21.99. I assumed this was a steak entree because it was listed under the other steak items, however when my entree came out, it was 2 very large portobello mushrooms caps grilled with some greens on the side (yes for $21.99). I have to say although I was initially dissapointed at the mis-order, the dish was phenomenal tasting, although I think it's misleading in appearance on the menu.
-One other thing....when I was there it wasn't crowded, maybe 30-40% full. If you are a party of only two they will not seat you at a 4 person table, because another couple asked were told no. A party of two have to sit at their two-party small tables which are paired two by two with another 2-party table. Now this was not a problem because there was not another couple sitting at the table adjacent to ours, but if they were another couple sitting there, these tables are way too close for comfort. It's like literally sitting as a party of 4! I understand the room is small but c'mon!
Despits those two small boo-boos, I would enthusiastically recommend eating at Landmarc. The food is worth the trip hands down.
Best Wine Values in the City and Great Food, too! – I live a few blocks away from Landmarc, so my roommate and I order it all the time. Although I much prefer to dine in for the atmosphere, I can say that their takeout is just as good as dining in... which is tough to say for most restaurants. Everything always arrives very quickly; hot dishes are hot; cold dishes are cold... it's always really great.
Don't miss: the wine list is AMAZING. The markups are very slight, so this is likely the very best value on wine you'll find in the city. Great selection, too... and lots of half bottles, which I can always appreciate. As far as food goes, the creamed spinach is the best you'll ever try, the mussels are outstanding, the rock shrimp risotto is a favorite, and the burger is just plain tasty. When dining in, I love the cheese plate, too. Another great value... (and don't miss the olive oil when dining in - not sure what they put in it, but it is de-licious!)
The wine's the star – Bright and friendly welcome for a relaxed saturday lunchtime. Service was attentive without being over-bearing. Roasted marrow bones were super delicious but definitely not for the faint hearted. A dull sounding pork chop was actually juicy and flavorful with lovely sides of roasted apples and sweet onions. Cheese plate covered all the bases from an aged gouda to a runny and heavenly robluchon. The wine list is truly stunning, can there be better value in NYC, America or the world ? A mix of cult wines (Ch. Musar '97) to the classics such as Pichon-Longueville-Lalande are all priced very reasonably compared to retail. A restaurant for wine lovers rather than hardcore foodies.
What the City Needs – Simply said, the city needs more restaurants like Landmarc. With its simple, understated food items that always come out more delicious than you could have anticipated and it's ever attentive and down-to-earth staff, this restaurant is a real winner. The last time I was there, I had the most amazing light but flavor-filled salmon tartare and then experienced a completely unexpected flavor explosion with the Cacio e Bevi (sp?) which was basically spaghetti, olive oil and cheese -- but trust me, it was SO much more than that. Then my husband and I took out a mint chocolate chip cone "to go." So awesome. The owners should be proud and I can't wait to try out the new location as well as their new restaurant Ditch Plains. I hope they don't disappoint!
nothing special – a good burger joint, nice wine list by the bottle, but something is missing. good tavern for tribeca
excellent food & service – Everything here from apptzr, entree & dessert is good. Great people, ambience, staff and food. Lunch & Dinner have always been great and good for couples or groups. I prefer upstairs area which is away from the oven, noise & tiny bar area. Good value as well. don't recommend their seafood dishes though but mussels are good. The cheese tasting plate is interesting & so is their dessert tasting plate.
When in Tribeca, Eat here! – We stayed at the Tribeca Grand for the night and walked around looking for a place to eat dinner at 10 pm. Though we had to wait a half hour or so on a week night (this place is hopping!), it was worth the wait. We were seated upstairs, a little less noisy, steaks and calves liver EXCELLENT. Half bottles of wine were SUPER w/ great selection. Service couldn't be better. Can't wait to go back!
