Last night after a very late doctor's apointment in the area, my husband and I took a chance that Blue Hill would take us for a 9:00 reservation. We got lucky!
I should mention that I'm 8.5 months pregnant and was completely starving. I asked if we could do the tatsing menu but would it be possible to have all the courses out in a short period of time as I was too tired to sit through the usual leisurely, but long, meal. Not a problem. And not only was the food outstanding, but they remembered all of my food requests/preferences/pregnancy quarks from the last time we dined there and each of my courses was tailored as such without my asking.
Our host sensed I was getting sleepy and even wrapped up our desserts before we had to ask him to. They were a delicious after breakfast treat this morning.
It was just a wonderful experience last night and made my love for the place grow even deeper. It felt very cozy and personal, not a feeling you often get a such an upscale restaurant.
And of course, the food was spectacular!
