This is the second time I had dinner at Blue Hill. The waitress recommended the slice veal which both my wife and I ordered. It was full of sinew and grizzle. Both my wife and I mentioned to her that she should not recommend this item

Came here for a non-special occasion dinner, but the majority of those around us were there for birthdays or other special occasions. The food was AMAZING, and very accessible for the price point, meaning you didn't have to ask the waiter

Food, though somewhat uneven, often reaches the pinnacles of "new American" fine cuisine - chef's passion (and kitchen's precise execution) is most evident in the fish dishes and soups. I have never better enjoyed
