Sure, you can travel all the way upstate to Stone Barns to experience The Daily Meal’s 2013 American Chef of the Year Dan Barber’s exquisite brand of farm-to-table cooking, but at its sister restaurant, located on a quaint and charming block just off Washington Square Park, the farm comes to you. There are few other restaurants in the city that sing the praises of super-fresh, super-seasonal produce and pasture-raised meats quite as reverently and stunningly as Blue Hill does — and that have done it for as long (it opened in 2000). A glance around the room at those who come to worship at Barber’s altar in various states of quiet contemplation should tell you all you need to know. Choose between the four-course tasting menu or opt for the farmer's feast, a six-course tasting inspired by the week's harvest. Take a bite of the tortellini with squash, ricotta, and chestnut; Stone Barns grass-fed lamb with twice-baked Jerusalem artichokes; this morning's farm egg with lobster and shelling beans; or black dirt carrot steak with squash "onion rings," bone marrow, bordelaise sauce, and creamed spinach, and you’ll find yourself at a loss for words as well.

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.

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.

Spend the day strolling the hills of this working farm before settling in for one of chef Dan Barber's world-renowned dinners. Book months in advance.

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.

Most of what you eat here will be grown, raised, and/or processed on the property, and Barber's modern American food is full of color and flavor.

get the tasting menu on Sundays (amazing) and make time to check out the grounds.

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.

The epitome of a true farm to table experience. The grounds are as exquisite as the food. Get there early and walk around before your meal. Be sure to leave with some treats from their shop.
