New, 12 comments

STONE BARNSRuth Rechl files a glowing recap of a recent meal at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. From her post: "All through the meal I could sense a silent communication between the front of the house and the back. They were watching what we were eating, figuring out what we liked, adjusting the food. This is, of course, what you do at home when you cook for your family. But I've never before seen that happen in a restaurant. At Stone Barns you aren't just paying for a meal, you're forging a relationship." [Ruth Reichl]
