Blue Hill at Stone Barns

For those who value farm-to-fork eating, Blue Hill Stone Barns is a must-visit destination.

Chef Dan Barber, a pioneer of the local food movement, has created an 80-acre oasis of agriculture, farming, and feasting set in the peaceful Pocantico Hills, just a quick train ride from Manhattan. Come with an appetite; dinner in the restored dairy barn, built in the 1930s as part of the former Rockefeller estate, is a thrilling multi-course menu that changes daily with the farm’s harvest—radiant tomatoes, braised pork jowls, fairytale eggplant charred over house-made charcoal, you get the idea. And don’t miss the wine pairings—unexpected and exceptional.

The entire experience is intoxicating, from the setting to food and service. If you’ve got a splurge in you, don’t miss Stone Barns.

Note: Tasting menu is $258 per guest exclusive of beverage and tax and there is no à la carte menu. Wine pairings are $168. The restaurant recently did away with the practice of tipping to ensure every member of their team is compensated more equitably. Instead, a 20% administrative fee will be added to your bill.
