Day 917 : Family friendly in the Time Warner Center - Landmarc

The second branch of Marc Murphy's casual American bistro located on the third floor of the Time Warner Center is classic Upper West Side -- families with strollers, young upwardly mobile couples and groups of friends gathering over cocktails and nibbles, passers-by, local neighborhoody folks coming in for a quick bite, you name it, it's easy and convenient. Always packed full with a nice buzz in the room -- come in for brunch, lunch, or dinner and have an extensive selection of food options.

Walking in at 6:30 on a Sunday evening for a large family dinner, the sleek and modern room was practically full to the brim. We had a nice circular table towards the back of the restaurant for nine -- but the mixture of the diameter of the table plus the volume of the room made it hard for us to talk freely from one side of the table to the other.

So what did I have?

Seared wild Sockeye Salmon with winter roasted vegetables with a side of roasted brussel sprouts topped with shaved Parmesan. Simple yet flavorful and wonderfully seasonal, this was the perfect meal after a day spent outdoors hiking. However, next time I come to Landmarc, I most certainly won't come at the Sunday evening dinner rush as it took over an hour for us to receive our food. Overall everyone was pleased with their dishes, that is when they arrived.

A lovely local joint for simple, well prepared dishes and a nice atmosphere.
