If you were hoping to loosen up that tie and ditch the formal dress code for a country escape at The Fearrington House Restaurant, don’t throw on your jeans just yet. A jacket isn’t required for men, but the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant certainly recommends that gentlemen don a coat and tie for this special dining experience. In other words, you’ll want to get spruced up before you walk into this renovated 1927 farmhouse. On this rural North Carolina farm, Southern hospitality rules; so you’ll be made to feel comfortable regardless of whether you are dressed to impress or simply dressed down. That being said, don’t come too dressed down — denim is pushing it. Looking around, though, you’ll likely spot women in heels and men in those recommended coats and ties. Because the restaurant is a prime spot for marriage proposals and anniversary celebrations, you’re bound to see couples dressed to the nines.
