We’ve completed our latest fine dining search for the world’s top restaurants, and we have a new top list, now headed by the Inn at Little Washington. Spectacular food. Incredible ambiance. Perfect service. Yes, you read that right. Perfect. Friendly, with timely jokes and a great sense of humor, the wait staff is meticulous in every detail. In fact, the entire hotel displays a service-forward attitude that can not be improved on. The wine list (and sommelier Lindsay) are wonderful, and the three tasting menus offer a wide variety of options that you are welcome to tailor to your desire. As if that wasn’t enough, after dinner we were offered complimentary 40-year-old port, and a meet and greet in the kitchen with chef Patrick O’Connell, who is uber friendly and personable. They operate around the clock with 38 chefs. What a wonderful experience.
