New York, US
Blue Hill at Stone Barns in upstate New York may be better known as a mainstay on the World’s 50 Best list, but Blue Hill in Greenwich Village is actually chef Dan Barber’s original establishment. Showcasing local food from nearby farms, including Blue Hill itself, the intimate, formal restaurant below street level serves a daily changing taster or a three-course menu of fresh produce such as Castelfranco radicchio and yoghurt or lettuce tacos with Spanish mackerel. Chefs tend to a tiny urban roof garden accessible by a step-ladder at the back of the restaurant.
