Like any New Yorker, brunch is a meal that I take very seriously. While I do enjoy venturing out to discover new places, over there years there remain a handful of trusted spots that I return to again and again… and again, lol! Landmarc definitely falls into the latter category. Way back when Eric and I first got married and lived in Washington Heights, we’d zip down to midtown nearly every Saturday morning for a plateful of Landmarc’s pancakes or pain perdu (the most delectable, gravity-defying french toast you’ve ever experienced). And while the food is absolutely delicious, the part I always look forward to the most are the amazing house-made caramels that the server brings with your check. They also have free cotton candy for kids… buuuuutttt rumor has it that adults can get in on the action too if they ask really, really nicely!

If you ever visit, be sure to try and snag a seat by the window overlooking Central Park. In addition to brunch fare, they also make a pretty tasty burger and french onion soup (or try the daily pasta special or a nice pot of mussels)… and if you’re really partying it up, get one of each on the dessert menu, and thank me later!

True Story: I worked in Rockefeller Center for several years and never once took the time to visit the Rainbow Room! Last week – on a whim – I decided to rectify the situation. Eric and I were both dressed to the nines (ok, maybe sevens at best) with no particular place to go. Luckily, we snagged a last minute reservation and were whisked up to the 65th floor of 30 Rock for dinner and drinks with one of the most amazing views of the city I’ve ever experienced.

After a spending a relaxing few days roadtripping through Canada, it was time to head home. But we made time for one last stop along the way: Ausable Chasm. Known locally as the Grand Canyon of the Adirondacks, the chasm is a uniquely-carved, vertical-walled canyon made of 500 million year old rock. If you love the outdoors, then you’ll definitely enjoy spending the afternoon here. There are various trails to explore, and all are easily accessible for beginners. And I highly recommend you try rafting or tubing while you’re there. The rapids are pretty tame and provide just enough of a thrill (for me at least!).

Since we had a long car ride ahead of us, I wore a simple jumpsuit that was as comfy as a pair of pajamas. The trail l through the chasm is pretty easy and well-groomed, so I was comfortable in an old pair of sandals with a well-cushioned insole.
