Blue Hill Stone Barns

I'm finishing my work early today because I have unusually exciting plans tonight! My good friend Jason is taking me to an early birthday dinner at Blue Hill Stone Barns. It's half an hour north of Manhattan, and the restaurant is part of a working farm. Hopefully we will see some cute goats and cows!

The restaurant has a changing menu, which features the best of their produce and meat every month. January's line up is: American paddlefish caviar, Arugula, Baby lamb, Brook trout, Brussels sprouts, Burdock root, Celery root, Chestnuts, Claytonia, Farm eggs, Firecracker, Focea lettuce. (I have no idea what Firecracker and Clytonia are, but I'm psyched to try them!)

Have a great night, my lovelies. xoxo Update: It was amazing. I did not eat the baby lamb.


Heather from the bar said...

Oh they just did a Top Chef challenge there! Sounds delicious!! Have a good time :)

caroline said...

you're going to LOVE it. i've been there a few times and each meal was amazing. be prepared to come home with a very full belly.

Stephanie said...

I have always wanted to go there - have a great time!

FOSCO said...

Color me jealous. Can we please hear about it all tomorrow? With pictures?

Johanna said...

Exciting! The pictures are lovely. I am envious.

Dana said...

Oh Joanna, I was reading your bio and résumé... it's like a dream! Really, impressive! Jo rocks jeje

I would love to write for magazines and blogs too but I don't even know where to begin :( I would appreciate some advise!

Thanks for visiting my blog :)

Vanessa said...

Yum! Jealous!

browngoat said...

i am dying to go there...please post detailed descriptions with pictures tomorrow. i especially want pictures, if they are of goats!

Tina said...

Have a wonderful time and Happy Birthday!!!

Catherine said...

Happy Birthday, Miss Jo. I saw this on Top Chef and it looked amazing. Enjoy.

Tracie said...

hey.. didn't i just see this place on top chef?? lol small world! hope you enjoyed it!

koala said...

You hope to see cute goats and cows and eat baby lamb. I don't get carnivores.

Carissa said...

this was on top chef! I don't normally watch that show, but one of the contestants (Fabio) is from the town next to mine! Anyway, looks like a beautiful place. Have a happy birthday!

Deb said...

Happy birthday! Like everyone else, I just watched Top Chef and have been dying to go there....hope you enjoy your night!

Pretty Little World said...

Oh, poor baby lamb :( Farm fresh food would be excellent, but maybe not that farm fresh.

Everything else sounds lovely though -- and it looks so pretty!

KSBL said...

have fun!!!

Emilia Jane said...

I checked out this place as a wedding venue. It looks amazing! I can't wait for a detailed report!

Frijolita said...

Happy Birthday!!! I actually worked there for a bit and was lucky enough to eat there for free. One of the main perks of working there was to try the food. I would have taken your reservation had I still been working there! You should definitely take a tour of the grounds in the spring time or summer!

"hi, i'm ginny branch and i love love." said...

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh so cuuute! i want to take eddie here! have so much fun!

Amanda said...

I'm such a cynic, but I doubt all of that food comes from just the farm every month.

That said, it does look like a very nice place to eat. The first pic reminds me of growing up in rural Ohio :)


Ameya said...

baby lamb?!?! Eee, why am I the only one who is traumatized by that? D:

Oh well, hope you have a lovely time, i bet its a really cool place to visit!

Maddie said...

What a fantastic experience. I love that people are getting more in touch with their food these days. For what it's worth, they give those lambs a very nice life. It's the opposite of factory farm.

Melissa said...

That's so exciting, I just saw that on Top Chef! Have fun :)

l'actrice said...

Happy birthday and have a good time:-)

Annabelle said...

Wow! Sounds very impressive! Have a great time :-)

Alicia said...

Jealous! I went to high school right down the road & love that part of Westchester... Next time I'm in NY I'll have to see if I can get a reservation!

paula said...

oh, i hope you have a blast! happy birthday miss, almost mrs.!

Chelle said...

what a cute little lambie!

Jessie Cacciola said...

i keep hearing such great things about this restaurant--it can really be a model for where the slow food movement can go in the restaurant world. p.s. happy birthday, enjoy! xo

Yellowgoat said...

Oh...all the cute goats...too bad they will be killed and eaten..

trupeach said...

happiest of birthdays to you and your lucky belly!

Myownigloo said...

Sounds yummy and wonderful! I had no idea there was anything so pastoral near Manhattan. I will put it on our Must See list when and if we ever get back to New York.

Happy, Happy Birthday!

Mariafer said...

Have a great time!!

Char said...

Happy Birthday!! Hope you had a wonderful time.

pve design said...

Cocoa (Lisbon) said...

wow! I miss that! I had a big crush for baby sheep when I was a kid, I used to play with them all the time at my aunt's house.sigh...

Gourmet Chick said...

Enjoy Jo - I love restaurants like this that really care about the provenance of their food and change their menus to reflect the seasons.

Content in a Cottage said...

Don't eat the baby lambs.

Have a great birthday. This place looks wonderful. Are you having the wedding there?

Banana-head Pancake said...

I love the idea/conception of Blue Hill - I hope your dinner was amazing! Happy Belated Birthday!

Joanna Goddard said...

yes, i saw the top chef challenge, so awesome!! and content in a cottage, it's SUCH a gorgeous place to have a wedding -- oh my goodness, it would be amazing!! -- but it's a little out of our price range. in another life! :)

amber {daisy chain} said...

wow - what an amazing treat, this place sounds so full & rich. glad to hear you didn't eat those little cuties.

lex said...

i am dying to go there! my dream is that one day i will meet a nice boy who has a car and will take me to dinner there.

Lisa D said...

I saw this place on Top Chef & it looked AMAZING!!

simplyolive said...

Kotori said...

These photos totally make me want to head to the country this weekend. Hope you had a fabulous dinner!

lenny said...

i wish they had more veggie options, or else we would be there in a flash.

we are waiting until spring...hopefully more choices then. but the place seems delightfully cute!

happy b-day.

Katie said...

Did you really like it? I was very much not a fan of the not being able to order what you want thing!
It's a lovely place to walk around and look at the animals when the weather's better though. :)

Budget Babe said...

Burberry polo shirt the steady, solid, so many young girls also love it. Speaking of people of a ralph lauren polo, think it a sign of nobility elegant waving in the horse club.spyder jacket in the cold in your winter activities can be easily.columbia jacket it is expensive, but here you do not need to consider the price of it. the north face jacket one of my favorite money, I do not know how many in this world of its fans.

In preparation for the purchase of a tennis racquetbefore, we must consider your financial ability to bear; On this basis, a further comparison, as far as possible, choose your head tennis racquets. Now a lot of babolat pure drive and more mixed materials, the proportion of mixed-use to control the stiffness of the babolat aeropro drive and the shock-absorbing capacity, the more rigid babolat tennis racket, the swing more powerful force; but the relative resilience of the shock-absorbing capacity and wilson k factor performance of talks on the easier it is for the wrist and elbow injury.

Looks like a beautiful place...but such an odd disconnect omnivores have - wanting to see and pet the cute animals, but then perfectly content to eat them moments later? I don't get it.
