Meet Chef Patrick O’Connell at The Inn at Little Washington!


As a pioneer in the evolution and refinement of American Cuisine, using Virginia Bounty for more than forty-years, Patrick O’Connell’s intimate double Five Star, and double Five Diamond Inn & Restaurant has maintained a reputation of uncompromising excellence. Today, The Inn at Little Washington continues to be recognized as one of the top restaurants in the nation, recently being awarded the 2019 Michelin Guide’s highest accolade of three stars.

Inside Access from Chase guests will begin their evening at the magical Inn at Little Washington with a private canapé reception and an opportunity to visit the kitchen as Chef O’Connell and his team prepare a special feast. Following the reception, guests will be seated in the French inspired dining room to enjoy a specially curated four-course wine paired dinner.

Patrick O’Connell and his business partner converted a former garage to open The Inn at Little Washington on January 28, 1978, during the worst blizzard of the decade with no liquor license, insufficient electrical power, and a staff of three. Weeks afterwards, a Washington, D.C. restaurant reviewer dined anonymously and wrote that it was the best restaurant in a radius of 150 miles of the nation’s capital. Gaining the coveted third Michelin star in 2019 makes Patrick O’Connell and The Inn the first and only restaurant in the Washington D.C. region to receive this honor. Additionally, this year Chef O’Connell received the 2019 James Beard Lifetime Achievement award.

For history lovers, Washington, Virginia is one of the few unspoiled villages left in America. They say it hasn’t changed much since George Washington first surveyed it and named the streets back in 1749.
