Chef/Owner, The Inn at Little Washington
The Inn at Little Washington is considered one of the finest places to stay and dine in the world. Years ago, Mark and Francis enjoyed a couple of evenings there and they feel it was extraordinary. Chef/Owner Patrick O'Connell started as an actor before becoming an internationally acclaimed Chef. He believes that being a Chef is a more exciting theatrical experience. He sees each night in his restaurant as "a little film" and each guest as the start of that film. Such attention to details as boutonnieres for gentlemen and accessing and tracking guests' moods are his hallmark. His book, "Patrick O'Connell's Refined American Cuisine" is absolutely beautiful.
