Places to Live it up or Wind Down in the Mountains
Overview: The Kanu Restaurant and Lounge is tucked away inside the beautiful, Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid, New York. This Forbes Four Star all suite resort is the best that the Adirondack region has to offer for many reasons, not the least of which is the Kanu Restaurant and Lounge. The restaurant serves up an amazing offering of locally sourced and locally inspired a la carte meals that can be paired with their very extensive wine list, a perennial winner of Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence. Don't want to dine first class? Scale it back a bit in the Kanu Lounge. You can still order from their amazing wine list while experiencing more traditional fare and listening to their live entertainment.
What Makes it Outstanding: Kanu Lounge offers a little something for everyone when it comes to après ski. Wine and dine with your significant other in the restaurant or get comfortable with some drinks and an order of smores in front of one of the many fireplaces in the lounge.
Insider's Secret: Order up a "bespoke cocktail" from renowned bartender Zachary Blair. There's no drink menu to speak of, but after a brief conversation he'll whip up a delicious après ski drink made for your unique palate.
This is your après spot if...you are looking for the best of both worlds. The high end food at the Kanu restaurant is delicious and the perfect pairing with their extensive wine list while the lounge gives families the chance to spend their après ski winding down in a more relaxed setting with lighter fare, top shelf cocktails and live music.
