Blue Hill at Stone Barns - REVIEW

iforman2001 | Feb 25, 200801:01 PM

Absolutely incredible - a true culinary experience and quite possibly the best meal I have ever had. I went for brunch and I think that is the way to go. The farm is beautiful and not only will you enjoy looking at the landscape from the dining room, but you will also want to walk around the grounds after your meal. We experienced what turned out to be a 12-course tasting menu, with 1 bottle of champagne and 2 bottles of wine - it was an outstanding 4 hours! We were lucky enough to go with 2 friends who are regulars, got married there 2 years ago, and know pretty much the entire staff. The service was the best I have ever experienced. Every detail was attended to and this was even more apparent when we took a tour of the kitchen after our meal - it was pristine & flawlessly managed. Here's a list of our courses:

- fresh carrots and bok choy (picked fresh from the garden)
- beet, butternut squash, and celery root "chips" (paper thin)
- oyster shooter/cauliflower soup
- charcuterie - Coppa, Veal terrine
- beet salad w/goat cheese, yogurt foam & pine nut butter
- greenhouse salad w/soft poached egg
- beet burgers (mini beet sliders)
- gnocchi w/local cheese
- pork loin (& belly) w/apple butter
- peanut butter & beet jelly
- cocunut cake w/coconut ice cream and fresh coconut flakes
- apple cobler w/ginger ice cream
