Located near Washington Square Park on 75 Washington Place, in a speakeasy-like spot, is Blue Hill, an organic and artisanal inspired restaurant serving local food and wines. Guests must choose from a four-course tasting menu or a six-course meal called the Farmer’s Feast. The restaurant’s ingredients come from local farms and the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture, just outside of New York City.
Blue Hill’s executive chef Dan Barber has plenty of experience with sustainable dining and was appointed to former President Barack Obama’s Council on Physical Fitness, Sports and Nutrition. The dining experience is like no other and raises the bar for farm-to-table cooking.
