Call up all your freegan friends (but be prepared to pay): Blue Hill is transforming into a pop-up restaurant called WastED NY that will create gourmet meals using "wasted" or un-coveted ingredients at all levels of the food chain. Food waste donated from purveyors, fisherman, farmers and planters will provide the ingredients used by the rotating roster of chefs. Beginning tonight until the end of the month, a new guest chef will offer his/her menu each night including heavy hitters like April Bloomfield, Sean Brock, Daniel Humm and Grant Achatz. Reservations (before 9PM) can be made up to a week in advance and walk-ins are accepted. After 9PM, it's walk-ins only. Check out the full line-up below.
