Customer Comments:

After years of experience working in the kitchens of several regional restaurants individually, in July 2016 chefs Christopher Lund & Mark Lawrence finally decided to join culinary forces in the beautiful resort town of Lake Placid, NY with a vision:

“Take good, fresh ingredients and prepare them simply, to keep them delicious without messing them up with culinary silliness, and then use just enough imagination to provide a creative twist to keep things interesting.   Also, provide great service in a casual, comfortable atmosphere at prices most everyone can afford. We want to be a gathering place for our local friends to feel ‘at home’ so they return again and again, but also for tourists to feel welcome.” 

The result has been Back Alley Bistro – and it’s looking like that vision has been fulfilled…
