Table settings are elegant at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, while simultaneously reflecting the restaurant’s commitment to nature and farm-fresh cuisine. Padded tables feature white cotton tablecloths, black-and-white woven undercloths and a flickering votive candle in a small holder that resembles a hollowed-out tree stump. Next to it you’ll find a pale porcelain vase holding seasonal flowers like fuchsia-hued anemones and greenery that matches the floral centerpieces in the middle of the dining room. As you nibble your amuse-bouche, waiters set the table with tasteful pale gray porcelain plates with curved edges and embossed designs of heirloom grains like emmer and spelt — they're made exclusively for Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Should you opt for the cheese course, it will arrive on a rustic slate slab. Meanwhile, Guy Degrenne flatware and Stölzle Lausitz wine glasses complete the place settings. Best of all, if you’ve fallen for any of the Hudson Valley restaurant's tableware — including the grain plates, hand-blown wine decanters or crystal serving bowls — you can purchase them on the restaurant’s website. Creating a home tabletop that looks like it came from a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant just got one step easier.
