I have to arrange a dinner for a mixture of friends and clients and want to find a good restaurant that won't be outrageously expensive. I had hoped for Blue Hill, as it's good, exciting food without being too trendy or too stodgy, but they don't think they can accommodate a party of our size because of another booking that night. Any good suggestions like Blue Hill? Or, ideally, a little less expensive? (I don't think east village is right for this group - west village, tribeca, soho, chelsea would all be great.) Thanks for the suggestions!

No. Westchester farmer's markets

Mt Kisco is still happening, but very small -- only a couple of tables (vegetables, jams, etc, no cheeses, meats, flowers).

I'm also curious about the friday market at Stone Barns. Anyone?

tiny gem of a resturaunt in SF?

you are righ, it's not tiny, but it's still only seats about 60 or so, right? ALthough I heard they opened a pizza place next door, is that right?

wait, don't forget Delfina! Small, fantastic food, moderately pricey, and some of the best meals I've ever eaten served by knowledgable, respectful, hip locals. 18th Street near Dolores Park. A real gem.

Lee/Lenox/Becket Mass - good weekend breakfasts?

I'm heading up to Jacobs Pillow Friday and wondering how to get the most out of my 24-hour visit. Anyone eaten macrobiotic at Kushi Institute? Or Bombay Grill for Indian? Many thanks!

Restaurants in Westchester County that serve free range chicken and beef and organic produce

Yes, yes, yes! Flying Pig is still around at the train station and I've heard their food has gotten better (last ate there a year ago and it was inconsistent). Great lunches, though, always.
And Blue Hill at Stone Barns serves mostly meat and veggies from their own farms, which are organic. It's awesome, but very pricey.
