Restaurants similar to Blue Hill at Stone Barns

Is there anything else like this in the Tri State Region?
(Fresh, locally prepared food)

  1. Not sure it could be considered similar to Blue Hill,but Relish in Sparkill (Rockland County) uses a lot of locally sourced foods.

      That's exactly the type of place that I'm looking for. And then I also found Harvest on the Hudson, but don't know if that's any good (read mixed reviews.)

        It's funny this topic came up. We were looking for a place for a family dinner on Dec 26th. Blue Hill was our first choice but they are closed the week between Christmas and New Years. So instead we are going to try Harvest on the Hudson. I'll let you know how it is. I figure at least we'll get a nice view.

          i've been to both & there is NO comparison - Blue Hill at Stone Barns wins everytime. That does not mean you will not get a good meal & beautiful view at Harvest on Hudson. We enjoyed ourselves at both, but the food was better at Blue Hill and the grounds are beautiful there. However, the view of the Hudson at Harvest on the Hudson is FABULOUS. Ask for a seat near the windows! enjoy!

            I did just find this link. http://www.gayot.com/restaurants/feat....

            Harvest on the Hudson looks great for sure, but not the same. What about Valley at the Garrison?

            1. re: doona

              I just called the Valley the other day and they are closed until March. As far as Harvest on Hudson goes it's somewhat inconsistent but like meb said there are good meals to be had at Harvest. It's really beautiful in the warmer months when you can sit outside and enjoy their vegtable garden. I believe Monteverde has been making a comeback from what I've been hearing, it's a beautiful place with beautiful views so I hope that's true. In addition I believe the Flying Pig in Mt. Kisco....http://www.pigcafe.com/ , Equus in Tarrytown....http://www.castleonthehudson.com/ and Meritage in Scarsdale....http://www.meritagerestaurant.net/ , and up in Putnam County the Bird and Bottle still uses locally grown produce (not sure about this one, it use to)).....http://thebirdandbottleinn.com/

              Our plans have actually changed again so I'll have to try Harvest on the Hudson another time.

      2. How about Monteverde? It has an inn and spa instead of a farm, but it does focus on locally produced food. I haven't been but it sounds intriguing.

          1. Actually The Ryland Inn in Whitehouse NJ has a committment to local, fresh seasonal food. Much of the produce they use is grown on site in their 3 acre organic garden. It's not quite as posh as Blue Hill, but the food is wonderful and the atmosphere is refined.

              The Ryland Inn has been closed since Feb. Expected to reopen in Spring 08. We hope.

            2. The Flying Pig in Mt. Kisco uses mostly local and organic food, much from Cabbage Hill Farm. I see the restaurant's Web site is down now, but it is normally at http://www.pigcafe.com/ The have a small but interesting menu -- I've only eaten there once but enjoyed it thoroughly. There's a nice outdoor eating area in warmer weather, too.
