Why the Inn at Little Washington is still the place to be.

Chips & Dip Among Other Things

There are veteran restaurants in the DC area and then there are institutions.  The Inn at Little Washington is an institution.  A place that has been luring Washingtonians to its stomping grounds some two hours away rightfully deserves institution beside its name.  Recently, I got the opportunity to visit and I’ll spare you the details of my meal because this place will never have the same menu.  I will give you the deets on the wonderful experience.


Tin of Sin

A two-hour limo ride later from downtown DC landed me in what looks like the middle of nowhere in a small Virginia town called Washington (the irony…).  Classic elegance is the best way to describe the décor once you stop admiring the front of the two-story bed and breakfast that houses one of D.C.’s most acclaimed dining establishments.  Needless to say the service was impeccable.  It should be after having folks trek out to these parts to pay a hefty fee to taste the creations of Patrick O’Connell.  Appetizers that came straight from the garden, oldies but goodies and test drive creations made up the selections on my plate that night.

The Inn is worth every minute of the drive and every dollar some of us may have to save just to get there.  There are those of us who “like to eat” and call themselves “foodies” and then there are those that “appreciate the process and creation of food” and the actual art of food.  The latter does not have a name yet, but they are certainly the chosen few who should experience The Inn.  The “foodies” should save their money and keep up the good work in the city.
