Located in a Land-Marked old "Speakeasy" right off of Washington Square Park in the heart of Greenwich Village. Blue Hill restaurant opened at the end of April 2000. Blue Hill is dedicated to creating a new category of neighborhood restaurant that maintains the classic attributes of warmth and affordability, while delivering superior food and service.

"I've been wanting to come here for awhile, and I finally got decent reservations. I think this is a fantastic restaurant. Service was friendly and professional and the food was fantastic. It is expensive but I think it's worth it. All the food, both what we ordered and those 'extra tastes' were delicious and perfectly prepared. The menu changes a lot an I hope to try it during different seasons."

"We had brunch here recently and I say it was an all around great spot. We had a seat right by the window, which I think is probably nicer than actually sitting outside. The outdoor patio is kind of in a parking lot, but the view is nice from inside.
We ordered the mushroom and truffle omelet and the poached egg and hash. Both were delicious. I tend to order anything that says truffle, sometimes it's heaven on a plate and other times it disappoints. But this truffle omelet was one of the good times. It will probably be my go-to meal whenever I come here."

Chalk Point Kitchen is a "market to table" restaurant that uses local, seasonal, sustainable & organic products when ever possible. We take the edge and flavor of the downtown NYC markets and combine them with pristine local products & vegetables. We are committed to our artisans, farmers, fisherman, and winemakers-they are the heart and soul of Chalk Point Kitchen.

"I will say that our overall experience at Chalk Point Kitchen was good. I am really into the farm to table movement. I'd really like to give it 3.5 stars, but I'm feeling generous and will round up. I kind of expected a friendlier vibe from the restaurant, but didn't get it.
We started with the avocado and crab dip which was my favorite. The pork chop was also very good, but the trout wasn't super exciting. We ordered 2 vegetable sides, the succotash and the grilled watermelon. The succotash was good, a little creamier than I am used to and the grilled watermelon served as a perfect dessert.
We had wine with dinner, but most of the tables around us were drinking the Kale martini, which I think I may have to go back to try."
