Dining Washington Style

fluerGeorge Washington, legend has it, danced in the ballroom of what is now part of The Inn at Little Washington, only back then he couldn’t have known that the town he laid out in 1749 would one day be anchored by one of the world’s most famous restaurants and inns.

Here, gracing the corner of Middle and Main streets, its colorful flags rippling in the breeze, is the first restaurant and lodging establishment in the U.S. to achieve the Five Star, Five Diamond status for both its dining room and its lodging. Over the last three decades, The Inn at Little Washington has won one accolade after another. The 2020 Michelin Guide awarded The Inn at Little Washington its highest accolade of Three Stars, reserved for “exceptional cuisine worth a special journey.” The Inn remains the first and only Three Star restaurant in The Nation’s Capital and the only Michelin rated restaurant in Virginia.
