Everyone's excited about Blue Hill at Stone Barns. It was highlighted in today's Manhattan User's Guide and reviewed in New York Magazine.

From the Blue Hill at Stone Barns website:

Blue Hill at Stone Barns marks the second incarnation of family proprietors Dan, David and Laureen Barber. The original Blue Hill restaurant, located in Greenwich Village, New York City, opened in 2000 and was named after the former Berkshire home of David and Dan's grandmother.

Blue Hill at Stone Barns combines a working farm, restaurant, and educational center in the spectacular surroundings of Pocantico Hills, New York, revitalizing a collection of barns and creating a space that highlights the abundant resources of the Hudson Valley.

Both restaurants keep the preparation simple, in order to keep the focus on the farm-fresh, seasonal ingredients. Gothamist has only visited the Greenwich Village Blue Hill for drinks, and we're looking forward to having a meal there for a special occasion. We'll have to bribe one of our friends with a car to take us up to Pocantico Hills so we can see all the buzz up close and personal.
