Stone Barns

This past weekend, we took a brief trip up to Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, NY (just outside Tarrytown and less than an hour from the city).

They are known for having an amazing restaurant, Blue Hill at Stone Barns, as well as Blue Hill in NYC. See here for an article from 2008 calling it “the most important restaurant in America.” I haven’t yet had the chance to try it for myself, though, since the “cheaper” menu option is still $148 per person (I am sure it is wonderful, special, and would make for a lovely meal for a special occasion, but that is quite pricey).

Anyway! It was fun to walk around the farm and see some fall colors! Temperatures seem to have finally dropped — and fast! — but it’s been a relatively mild fall otherwise, so I haven’t noticed as many reds and oranges on the trees. Maybe I’m just not looking, though. 🙂

If you are in the city (or near it), I do recommend a trip. Nearby Tarrytown was appropriately decked out for Halloween (and we didn’t even see its neighbor, Sleepy Hollow/North Tarrytown). It all felt very autumnal.
