Washington, Virginia

Every evening brings a newly-conceived, seven-course tasting menu based on "cuisine de terroir," to be accompanied by 15,000 wines nestled in the wine cellar, making the dining experience at chef Patrick O'Connell and partner Reinhardt Lynch's country inn more like a dinner party than just a meal. O'Connell transforms the freshest and simplest ingredients into unique and fantastical creations.
