Visit Blue Hill for a locally grown restaurant in New York

Posted on 6th March 2012 by

Blue Hill opened in Greenwich Village in April of 2000 and was one of the first restaurants in New York to feature a menu of food produced locally from farms in the area, including Blue Hill Farm in Great Barrington, Massachusetts and Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture, which is located about an hour outside of New York city limits.

Located in a landmark speakeasy, Blue Hill will impress you right away with the friendliness of their staff and the warm basket of fresh bread that will greet you at your table. You can choose from their regular menu or try out their “farmer’s feast,” which is a 5 course tasting menu that changes each week reflecting each week’s harvest.

Try dishes such as cod head with broccoli and kombu, poached egg arugula salad with pancetta, and pork medley including the loin, tenderloin, and belly. Blue Hill is a local favourite and once you try out this popular restaurant in New York, you’ll surely jump on its list of strong supporters!
