Dinner Recommendations
Here at Franklin Manor, we often get asked, "Where do you recommend to eat?"
Fortunately for you, we have done our own personal research and here are our top picks. 

Left Bank Cafe
You would never imagine finding the most amazing French restaurant in the heart of a mountain town. Walking distance from Franklin Manor, Left Bank sits in the middle of downtown Saranac Lake. The menu is thoughtfully created and the food is made with love. Another favorite of ours for romantic evenings, we highly recommend reservations so you don't miss out!
The Fiddlehead Bistro
This local restaurant is fine dining and farm to table all in one. Walking distance from Franklin Manor, this romantic and quaint favorite is one that we reserve for our special occasions and date nights. Reservations are recommended, and the menu does change frequently, sometimes as much as daily.
Jimmys 21
If you don't mind the short drive to Lake Placid, or if you are already there visiting the Olympic tributes, this is another special occasion and romantic date night spot for us! They have homemade pasta made in house, and their lasagna is ridiculous! Reservations are recommended, and if you can, request a table with a view!

Bitters & Bones
Walking distance from Franklin Manor, Bitters & Bones is the definition of a Gastropub. The environment is laid back, frequently has live music, and has craft beer made onsite. During the summer months, we really enjoy sitting on the rooftop deck! 

Salt of the Earth
If you are looking for a dining experience, we would have to say that this is it! Located in a century old house Lake Placid, this small restaurant is where culinary artistry meets immersive dining. Rather than simply serving dishes, the team curates a multi-course tasting menu that takes diners on a gastronomic adventure through a symphony of flavors, textures, and aromas. Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or simply seeking a culinary adventure, we highly recommend Salt of the Earth as part of your Adirondack experience. The menu does frequently change and reservations are highly recommended!
