Best Restaurant in the World

My boss just told me that the best food of all times any place in the world (and she's been a lot of places) can be found at Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, up by Tarrytown in Westchester. Now I'm dying to try it out. 

The restaurant is situated at the Rockefeller Stone Barns built in the 1930s depression when there was a general consensus that the world was coming to an end. The farm was constructed to be completely self-sufficient and is still today a working farm. 

The coolest thing with Blue Hill at Stone Barns (there is a NYC version too, but it's not supposed to be as good) is that there are no menus. Every month there is a list of fresh produce from the farm that will constitute this ingredients for all the meals. They only serve tasting menus—8, 5, or 3 courses ($75-$135 per person). Reservations can be made 60 days in advance, but I have heard they go like hot cakes so you have to be ready to go the second they open up. Reservations can be made through opentable.com, so be ready at midnight!
