BLACKBARN is a NoMad restaurant serving modern American fare in a rustic barn-inspired setting. Opened by childhood friends Chef John Doherty and Tom Struzzieri in 2015, the design reflects the upscale, farm-to-table menu. After 30 years of experience in the iconic Waldorf Astoria kitchen, the James Beard Award-winning Chef wanted to try his hand at a new type of experience when venturing out on his own. While spending a weekend at Interior Design Hall of Fame recipient Mark Zeff’s, polished, minimalist cabin in East Hampton, he found the aesthetic to match his vision for a restaurant, and opened BLACKBARN under its name with Zeff as the designer.
BLACKBARN's Executive Chef, Matteo Bergamini, helms a tight-knit crew that includes Wine Director Andrija Tadejevic, Pâtissier Chef Anwuli Obidi, and General Manager Blake Irving. A weekly Chef’s Table dinner provides a unique and personal dining experience with a five course menu and wine pairings specially curated by Chef Doherty, and a view into the exposed kitchen as he prepares the meal. A portion of all proceeds from these dinners go towards Chef Doherty’s Heavenly Harvest Foundation, a charity that creates nutritious and quality meals for those in need.
