After blazing across the New York dining scene with his acclaimed interpretation of haute cuisine that is equal parts reverence and iconoclasm, Marc Murphy teamed up with his wife Pamela Schein Murphy to open their first restaurant, Landmarc, in April 2004. It was a neighborhood favorite restaurant for fourteen years and in late 2017 opened as a events only venue called Landmarc Tribeca Events. Currently it is under construction and will reopen as a new project in 2020. Landmarc at the Time Warner Center closed August 2019 after twelve years.
In 2006 we opened Ditch Plains in the West Village, and since then we’ve had the distinct pleasure of serving so many neighbors and friends. From our now infamous Ditch Dog (created from a simple miscommunication in the kitchen) to our lobster rolls and our epic bloody mary’s, we’ve celebrated with you, we’ve cheered our favorite teams on with you, we’ve nursed hangovers together and we’ve created a few, too. We rode a great, long wave with you and we’re so proud to have been such an integral part of an incredible and vibrant neighborhood for so long. We are still actively looking for a new home. Stay in touch for our next wave!
