Blue Hill at Stone Barns
Driving up to Blue Hill Farm tells you that you are in for quite an experience. Gardens, walking trails, landscaping - it all whispers top notch. Because nothing at Blue Hill screams. Its serenity is perhaps its greatest quality.
We visited for their Guest Chef Series, with Adrienne Cheatham at the helm, an 8-year veteran of le Bernadin and former executive chef at Red Rooster in Harlem.
This combination should provide vegetables at their peak (Blue Hill) and fish cooked to perfection (le Bernadin). On this mark, it delivered in full. Other dishes missed and a substantive service errors belied the 2 Michelin star status.
But some memorable dishes to be sure. Just check out the okra.
