Landmarc Review

Landmarc at the Time Warner Center is a sprawling restaurant overlooking Columbus Circle, a sibling to Landmarc Tribeca. Befitting its location, the restaurant is fairly upscale and the breakfast prices are on the high end. Unfortunately, the food lends credence to the idea that here you're just paying for location.

The Landmarc egg sandwich with Gruyere and bacon came on an English muffin and with a side of hash browns. You have a choice of bacon or sausage on the sandwich; I opted for bacon, but it wasn't what I expected. Rather than crispy strips, there were small chunks of thick-cut bacon mixed in with the egg. But many of the pieces were actually thick pieces of unappealing, chewy fat. The hash browns were thinly grated potatoes that were a little too salty, but otherwise okay.

My dining companion ordered the Eggs Norwegian, poached eggs on smoked salmon and an English muffin with hollandaise sauce and hash browns on the side. Not bad, but nothing special.

For the area, I'd say you're better off going to some place like Sarabeth's on Central Park South, which has similar options with better results.
