Whiteface Lodge Resort & Spa’s Kanu is a fine-dining, farm-to-table restaurant commandeered by executive chef David Haick. Kanu’s dining room, flanked by grand stone fireplaces, deer’s heads, slate floors and finely crafted Adirondack-style tables and chairs, is an elegant space — a top pick for on-site wedding ceremonies. Kanu Lounge offers a more causal atmosphere for lighter fare and cocktails, with leather sofas, crackling fireplaces and a handsome bar. (Guests can sign up for wine tastings with the resort’s sommelier.) Adjacent to the spa is a café that, by day, serves spa cuisine, but after-hours transforms into an ice-cream parlor. In summer, the Lake Placid hotel’s Canoe Club Grill accommodates guests at the lakeside Canoe Club.
