The Inn at Little Washington has been an East Coast institution for more than three decades. Situated in the bucolic Virginia countryside, this luxurious property is casually elegant, and, as the name implies, isn't just a groundbreaking restaurant but also a charming hotel—chef-owner Patrick O'Connell is adept at playing professional host in both. Tongue-in-cheek menu descriptions translate into theatrical New American dishes like "beet Fantasia" and a "marriage of hot and cold foie gras."
