Blue Hill NYC vs Blue Hill at Stone Barns
Long time reader of the boards on here, but this is actually the first time I've posted. Looking for some help that I know you can provide.
I really want to take my girlfriend to Blue Hill. She is a huge fan of farm to table cuisine, in general, and I thought that this restaurant would be a great place to take her for a special night out. The only problem is, I don't know whether I should take the 45-minute drive out of NYC to go to the Stone Barns location or whether the NYC location is as good or better.
Anyone have any experience with each of these?
Thanks so much!
For the full immersion you MUST go to BH@SB, no question about it. Don't get me wrong, BH in the city is a very good choice, very pretty, excellent food but being on the farm, walking around before (or after) dinner, dining in a beautiful, spacious room looking out onto beautiful landscapes all the while knowing most of the food you are eating was never more than a couple thousand feet away, that's what you want for your GF.
Take the train to Stone Barns. Go early. Walk around before the sun sets.
Also I believe they book 60 days ahead and it is VERY popular in spring & summer. Plan ahead.
