Perry St or Blue Hill or Union Square Cafe
We're in NYC for only 2 nights this trip and are trying to branch out from our favorite, union square cafe. Does anyone recommend either Perry Street or Blue Hill , or should we stick w/ USC?
If my choices are those three, I pick Blue Hill. Hands down. In the same price range, in addition to Blue Hill, which I think is excellent, I would add:
Eleven Madison Park
I had a terrific dinner at Blue Hill recently.
Wonderful local and seasonal menu, and the front-of-house team could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We were a table of 5; 2 of us had the farmer's feast (4-course pre fixe for $75), and the others ordered a la carte.
We were there for almost 3 hours, didn't feel rushed at all. The dining room was full but yet still serene. Lovely series of amuse bouche: little farm fresh vegies, veg salts with bread and butter (and lard), mini beet burgers. Yum. Food was great - especially loved this morning's farm egg.
Don't miss the chocolate bread pudding - we're still talking about it!
