President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama dined out in the Big Apple this past weekend. So, where in one of the food capitals of the world did they eat? Blue Hill, naturally. The Obamas are committed to sustainable agriculture as indicated by the new White House kitchen garden, and Dan Barber, chef/co-owner of Blue Hill, is renowned for his role in the field-to-plate movement.
A 2009 James Beard Foundation Award winner, Barber also operates Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture is a non-profit, four-season and pastured livestock farm that provides many of the ingredients served at both Blue Hill restaurants.
