Enjoy a front-row view of the action plus five Chef-selected courses made from the season’s freshest ingredients. $165 per person also includes champagne to start and five wine pairings.
For the ultimate foodie experience, dine at the Chef’s Table in the BLACKBARN kitchen. Each month, chef-owner John Doherty creates a highly seasonal 5-course menu with wine pairings that’s exclusive to the Chef’s Table. He personally prepares and serves the dinner alongside our Sommelier, interacting with guests and giving them a special night in New York.
Meadow Spring Lamb with fennel, figs and Zataar spice blend. Each course is paired with a carefully selected wine to make this a unique and memorable experience.
The Chef’s Table menu changes every month offering the best of what local farmers have to offer. Dining in the kitchen offers an element of entertainment not found anywhere where the Chefs move stealth-like in the kitchen around you, creating one dish after the other in rapid sequence. Here you might find a Corn Soup with Lobster and Chanterelles, Heritage Chicken Ravioli with Fresh White Truffles, or Roasted Fairytale Eggplant with tomato, capers, pickled scapes, crispy shallots or perhaps Salt.
