Farm setting on the gorgeous Rockefeller estate in way upscale Pocantico, NY
Classy stone farm buildings, excellent service, locally sourced ingredients (including a lot of items from their own fields), you choose either an 8 or 12 course meal (8 was fine) and the amazing food starts to roll out. Unusual techniques, interesting presentations...the whole deal.
Great place for a celebratory dinner (birthday, anniversary), you will enjoy one the truly great “fine dining” experiences in the area. Wine is the star here, with a huge list of expensive (surprise) wines. Of course all this comes with a price, expect to pay well over $100 per person.
You are a beer person, and this place does show moderate beer respect. Expect 4 quality drafts as well as about 30 quality bottles, well chosen to go with the food. Beer details can be seen on their website, unfortunately they do not update their info on Beermenus.com.
A worthy, but very expensive culinary and to a lesser extent beer experience.

My favorite restaurant in the New York area, it never ceases to impress. The setting is gorgeous, the dining room cozy and understated. Service is perfection, and so is Chef Dan Barber's plant-based menu. Eat here and you will never look at vegetables the same way.
While their emphasis is on wine, there are many fine beers to choose from in the menu, with an emphasis on saisons and pale ales (a great pairing for vegetables). Lots of Stillwater and Evil Twin, some old ales like Harviestoun Highland Park 12 Year 2008 and four varieties of Hof Ten Dormaal Barrel Aged project.
Good stuff indeed but far from the beery excitement of other fine-dining temples like Eleven Madison Park. Also, they have only 4 taps: Peekskill Sour, Greenpoint Harbor, Kelso Nut, Evil Twin Farmouse. At 12 dollars each, they are mighty pricey. The bottle menu on the other hand is somewhat reasonable ($15-$38 per bottle).
While you don't come to Blue Hill-Stone Barns for the beer, there is enough here to pair your exceptional meal.

They only have a few beers at all to choose from. What they do have though are unique, and local. Definitely worth stopping at if you are in the area.
The farm setting, as well as the sourcing of foods from what they can grow on that farm are a main draw for many. The bar area is a nice place to wait on your reserved table, which that is recommended. Price, everything is more. I had a bottle of Captain Lawrence IPA, and I think that went for over $10.
A well worth it evening however.
