First Time Visit to Blue Hill at Stone Barns Tomorrow
My wife and I are heading to BHSB tomorrow evening for an anniversary dinner. It will be our first time there, and I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions. We're going to try to get their early so we can check out the farm a little bit. Any ordering suggestions? I understand that they don't use a traditional menu, but I assume that they offer an opportunity to tell them what you particularly like/dislike, or what you absolutely won't eat.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
go early, check out the grounds, it's beautiful.
they'll give you a huge list of ingredients that might be in tonight's meal. you let them know if you have any allergies or extreme dislikes, and they'll go from there. you'll either get a 5 'course' or 8 'course' tasting menu; both contain same amount of food. the 5 course one a month ago was more adventurous, with bone marrow, and some type of face bacon as a couple of the courses.
we left full, but...i think it's way too hyped for the price point. and i love momofuku(s), which have received hype out the wazoo...and have no problems paying that amount for something which is worth it (i'll be doing that this weekend). i just didn't think it matched up.
i keep meaning to put up a post of our recent time there, but just haven't had the desire. it's much easier to post something when you're enthusiastic.
tell them things u prefer\like and tell them things u dont like. for example i dont like carrots and i love ice cream and corn. my final course there was a grilled corn ice cream with cornbread and fruits. sounds weird but trust me that dessert blew my mind. just tell them what u like, sit back and enjoy the experience. if youre a big eater like me tell them that, they'll provide richer courses.
