Lake Placid Lodge
Built in 1882 and devastated by fire, the main lodge would need to be replaced in its entirety. Design a kitchen to support “farm to table” cuisine supporting separate restaurant and pub menus, room service, picnic lunches, and special events.
The Kitchen would serve as a showcase for visitors and flex to the demands of peak and off-peak seasons.
Work closely with the architect to develop plans for a facility that would achieve the Owner’s vision including:
- The restaurant and pub would be positioned to provide adjacent terrace level dining with water’s edge views of Lake Placid and Whiteface Mountain beyond.
- Accounting for the correct size and shape of the dining space and for appropriate circulation to the Kitchen, develop an efficient layout for the Kitchen to make the best use of the available space.
- Work closely with the architect to design work areas with durable, cost-effective finishes.
- Focus on work station design would be critical to support the Chef’s expectations.
- Select appliances with local factory authorized service and parts availability.
The Lodge was reopened to great acclaim. The kitchen facilities were functional, cost effective and supported “farm to table” cuisine for Artisan’s Restaurant and Maggie’s Pub. The idyllic setting, the Adirondack lodge design and the 5 star quality/service levels set the stage for wonderful dining experiences.
