If you want a chance to experience The Inn at Little Washington, you better make a reservation at this foodie haven in Northern Virginia. Considering that it’s situated 70 miles from the nation’s capital, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant attracts some of Washington’s biggest VIPs. That being said, you can’t just drop by and see if there is an open table; it doesn’t work that way. We suggest you call as far in advance as possible because snagging a table at The Inn at Little Washington is quite a feat. The restaurant accepts reservations up to a year in advance — so the sooner, the better.
However, there is an exception to this rule: If you happen to be staying overnight at the Five-Star hotel, The Inn at Little Washington, that is home to the restaurant, the concierge automatically arranges a dinner table for you. The nice thing about this is that not only do you get to stay in an exquisite guest room, but you also get to feast on an unforgettable meal without having to book it six months in advance.
