The table settings at The Fearrington House Restaurant are modern, with solid white Fortessa china, Sambonet flatware, sparkling Spieglau stemmed wine glasses and Reidel stemless water glasses. Tables are draped with heavy cream-colored Frette tablecloths with white trim atop a dark gray woven underskirt. The tables themselves are topped with a simple but sophisticated floral arrangement such as a small white flower in a closed, square-shaped glass vase. Although somewhat understated in appearance, the setting is elegant and truly lets chef Colin Bedford’s colorful creations stand out. Indeed, the chef’s plating is precise and inventive, regularly featuring a bounty of differently hued foods that pop against the monochromatic table setting.
What’s more, since the “dining room” is actually a series of small dining rooms in a restored 1927 farmhouse, there are only a few tables in each nook. You’ll appreciate the generous spacing at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant — you won’t be knocking elbows with fellow guests and you’ll have the opportunity to easily enjoy the refined settings and the décor.
Tables at The Fearrington House Restaurant are very clean and unencumbered. Crisp Frette linens adorn the tables with simple place settings of a beautiful glass charger and a Frette napkin folded on it. There are fresh flowers on each place setting with crystal votives. Silverware is brought to the tables as needed for each course.
