Blue Hill at Stone Barns

An authentic Hudson Valley culinary experience

An extension of Blue Hill restaurant in Manhattan set in the Pocantico Hills, Blue Hill at Stone Barns is not only a restaurant but the foundation for a working not-for-profit farm and educational center dedicated to sustainable food production. The dining room is a former dairy barn that has been converted into a lofty, modern space with vaulted ceilings, dark wood accents and earthy tones.

You will not find a set menu at this hyper-seasonal restaurant, rather the chefs select the courses using the best ingredients from the day’s harvest, ensuring maximal flavor, minimal environmental impact and endless innovation in every bite.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • While only 30 miles north of New York City, Blue Hill at Stone Barns is a culinary experience that feels like it’s a world away from the hustle and bustle. With its close proximity to New York, the Four-Star restaurant offers a perfect opportunity for city-dwellers and suburbanites alike to experience the ambiance of a working farm.
  • This Hudson Valley restaurant is a must-taste for every foodie. Tucked in picturesque Pocantico Hills, New York, Blue Hill gathers its ingredients from the surrounding pastures and fields.
  • For an unforgettable dining experience, reserve the Private Dining Room overlooking the vegetable field and herb garden that provides the ingredients on your very plate for a party of up to 12 guests.
  • At Stone Barns Center for Agriculture, visitors are welcome to roam through the open-air greenhouses, gardens and livestock shelters. If you're wearing comfortable shoes, a stroll makes for a lovely prelude to dinner, not to mention helping you work up an appetite.
  • Chef Dan Barber seriously adheres to the farm-to-table philosophy. The menu will change at a moment’s notice depending on what’s in season and being harvested on the adjacent farm.
