I wanted to make a reservation at Blue Hill Stone Barns, but didn't realize they started taking reservations two months in advance. So, I think I'm totally on top of it and call one month ahead, and the only times available are 5pm and 9pm. So, I took both.
We are coming up from the city for a special occasion, and I'm not sure how to do this now. I was hoping to get some time in the middle of those, and be able to have dinner at a quasi-normal hour but still take the train home. I am afraid taking a real late train home will detract from the experience. I have considered staying somewhere around there, but really haven't found anything special feeling within price range and close enough to Stone Bars for it to make sense.
However, I also sort of feel like finishing dinner by 8 might not feel very special occasion either. Any suggestions on which might provide a better experience?
