Dan Barber's "farm-to-table" "temple", this "top-tier" Village American "consistently wows" with "heavenly" "locavore" cuisine that "brings together the best ingredients and makes them shine"; a "serene", "sophisticated" venue where the staff "couldn't be more engaged", it's "well worth" the rez drama and "high-end" cost ("what's good enough for Mr. President . . .").
A pioneer of the farm-to-table movement, Blue Hill has been bringing the local harvest to Greenwich Village since 2000, and its chef/co-owner Dan Barber was named one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People in 2009 for leading the locavore charge. Not much has changed since Blue Hill first opened. The fresh-as-can-be ingredients still come from several area farms, including the Blue Hill Farm in Great Barrington, Mass., and the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in the Hudson Valley.
The dining room, tucked behind a subtly marked doorway a few steps down from street level, is a simple space. White tablecloths and crimson-colored seating add a touch of warmth, as do the enthusiastic servers who gush about their favorite items on the always-seasonal, ever-changing menu. Rather than choosing between dishes such as Jerusalem artichoke soup with bacon and hazelnuts or emu egg pasta with black trumpet mushrooms, you might opt for the five-course Farmer's Feast tasting menu, which showcases the best of the week's locally sourced harvest.
Though seats at this Blue Hill aren't in as high demand as they are at upstate sister restaurant, Blue Hill Stone Barns, reservations are recommended. As you fill up on ricotta gnocchi with rich Berkshire pork belly and delicate yellow-foot chanterelles, remember that the dessert menu may include orchard-fresh fruit or a decadent chocolate bread pudding with salted caramel, pine nuts and cocoa nib ice cream.
