Blue Hill at Stone Barns

Row 1

High-profile organo-loca-sustainavore (and The Daily Meal's American 2013 Chef of the Year) Dan Barber has found the perfect home at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, a beautiful restaurant in a bucolic but hardworking setting on a year-round farm and educational center. But if you’re looking for a signature dish you’re out of luck. This literal farm-to-table restaurant prepares reserved meals based largely on the day’s harvest. Most of what you eat here will have been grown, raised, and/or processed on the property, and the modern American food Barber creates from it is full of color and flavor. There’s a reason why he’s one of the most relevant chefs in the country right now.

Arrive early and work up an appetite for the stunning tasting menu by wandering the grounds of the former Rockefeller dairy estate. In the fields, you'll see much of the makings of the night's meal.

try the 5-course tasting menu, it should be plenty of food. at 8-courses, the farmer's feast is just too much food with all the amuse-bouches in between, & clocks in at 3 hours!

There's no menu at this farm, education center and restaurant. Instead, patrons are served a "Farmer's Feast" created with whatever ingredients are in season.

Amazing, but you already knew that. May take you 3 months to get a wkd reservation... but did you know you can just walk in & do a 3-course tasting menu at the bar? Great way to break up a car ride!

You're traveling up there, go for the 8 course. Same amount of food as the 5 course, but more variation and totally worth it.

Total amount of food between 5 and 8 courses are the same. I thoroughly enjoyed the 8 courses. Though our 9pm start meant we didn't leave until well after midnight!

Excellent food and impecable service. Stick with the 5 course option with wine parings, 8 was over the top.

One of my favorite places of all time. Food, atmosphere, & service = perfect. Do the 8-course tasting. Pro tip: you can have them call you when they'll be serving your favorite seasonal ingredients.

The famously anonymous Michelin inspectors have never rated Dan Barber's restaurant; maybe they will now since the James Beard Foundation awarded it Outstanding Restaurant of 2015.

Eater National 38 member: At some point in the evening, staffers guide guests to enjoy part of meal in another area on the property, perhaps the patio or in a former manure shed turned cozy enclave.
