Artisans Restaurant is situated within the cozy Lake Placid Lodge, a showpiece of the region’s signature style and a throwback to Great Camps of the Gilded Age, the stylish lakeside compounds owned by the very wealthy. Expect handcrafted furniture, tasteful taxidermy, stone fireplaces and regional art — décor that reflects the surrounding woods and water. The scene at the Lodge is relaxed and respectful, with guests curled up on deep leather couches beside a crackling fire, while the Forbes Travel Guide Four Star restaurant offers a slightly more elegant and private setting, with plate presentations as artful as the surrounding decor. Restaurant staff go above and beyond to accommodate diners. Children over 12 are always welcome at Artisans, but in March the Lodge invites families with kids of all ages, which means the possibility of a toddler at a nearby table.
