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! 

Casa del Sol
Growing up in Texas, I would say that I have high expectations when it comes to Mexican/TexMex cuisine. (That and bar-b-que.) When I am craving that "nostalgic taste", this is where we go. More often than not, Rob comes home with an order of their salsa verde! A relaxing environment, reservations are not required, although on the weekends, they can get quite busy. This is also another option if you are wanting to dine on an outside patio.
