Since Landmark opened in the former Diner on Clifton space 8 months ago, I’ve heard nothing but positive things, particularly about their smoked meats. So, I was so glad to have a chance to explore their delicious menu this week.
Before we dove into the food, we sampled some of Landmark’s own personal bourbon, created by Buffalo Trace. Landmark has an impressive bourbon selection for sipping or cocktails.
Landmark has a wood smoker on site and smokes brisket, turkey, chicken, pork, and ribs with hickory wood or cherry wood, depending on the meat. We started with the Smoked Meat Sampler, with one pound of brisket, pork, and turkey, served with toast points, pickles, cole slaw, pickled onions, and BBQ sauce.
The brisket literally melted in my mouth and was my favorite of the sampler, but all of the meats were tender, smoky, and delicious. None really even needed sauce, but the sauces offered nice variety: Kansas City, North Carolina, Memphis, and South Carolina styles.
We also got to try a new menu item: half a BBQ chicken, served with French fries and cole slaw. The crispy skin, tasty sauce, and tender smokiness made this chicken unforgettable. And there was something about those fries…really addictive!
We tried the mac ‘n cheese, which was creamy, comforting, and with just a hint of sweetness.
And we got a sample of Landmark’s truly unique menu item: the Montreal smoked sandwich, with twelve-day smoked cured brisket served on rye with yellow mustard. One of the most delicious “deli style” sandwiches I’ve ever had!
Landmark offers more than just smoked meat, so we made room to try two of their bowls: the Thai peanut and Mediterranean.
The Thai peanut bowl has grilled chicken served over white rice with steamed broccoli and carrots, roasted red peppers, grilled pineapple, and Thai peanut sauce.
The Mediterranean bowl has grilled chicken served over white rice with cucumber, tomato, hummus, chick peas, Kalamata olives, and tahini.
Both bowls were flavorful and filling and offer healthy, non-smoky options.
We took home a couple of Landmark’s decadent homemade chocolate chip cookies, too!
Landmark is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week for dine-in or carry-out. The atmosphere is relaxed, friendly, and filled with the delicious aroma of smoked meat. For a truly elevated neighborhood eatery experience, stop in to Landmark!
