How Will Grandma Get There? While the venue is a 45-minute drive away from New York City, that’s long enough that most guests’ might want to stay closer to the venue (and of course, all the out-of-towners.) There are plenty of hotel options 15-minutes away from the venue, including the Weschester Marriott. However, you might want to look into a shuttle to transport guests to the venue (expect costs to start at $1,000+).
Blue Hill is an upscale restaurant in NYC’s Greenwich Village, and one that my good friend (who is a food editor at a major foodie magazine) once claimed was her favorite restaurant. Blue Hill at Stone Barns is their other restaurant, located at the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture. The focus is on farm-to-table fare, and during the growing season the restaurant sources their foods from the surrounding fields and pasture, including Blue Hill Farm in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture, and other farms within a 250-mile radius.
Woman Getting Married Says:
If sustainable, fresh, amazing food is a priority for you, this venue should be high on your list (White House chef Sam Kass, who recently got married here, would agree). Yes, it’s going to be pricey, but if you have the budget the New York venue is going to be hard to beat in terms of location, quality, and uniqueness.
