Blue Hill ~ Stone Barns ~ your thoughts !

Finally went on Saturday night after waiting 2 months for a reservation.
I really enjoyed my meal there last summer.
They are now serving " farm feasts " from the kitchen, there is NO menu.
There is a very comprehensive list of local ingredients for you to view.
Or waiter ( very stiff ) asked us for our food allergies and food dislikes.
Oh boy, one in our party does not eat butter or heavy cream.
A few others chimed in with ingredients from cabbage to cilantro.
Instead of asking us what we would not like to have, how about what
we WOULD like to enjoy ? I mentioned this, the waiter informed me there are NO requests.
I was salivating for ivory king salmon, bronze fennel, and dancer eggplant ...
So the five courses started arriving, all with a strong salt hand from the kitchen.
The food ranged from good, to I cook much better.
The desserts were disapointing, yuck to local beer ice cream.
Who has been here with this " non menu theme " ??
It did not work with a party of six with different restrictions.
I love the variety of local and heirloom ingredients but ...
Please write back with any opinions !
Any one else think they should also lighten up a little on the attitude ?

Oh, the potato & onion bread was fabulous !
