What is Family Meal?

A longtime tradition in the restaurant industry, “family meal” is prepared to nourish the staff prior to service.

Family meals can provide the chef with a creative outlet to test inspiring new ideas, and express love to their restaurant ‘family’.

Over time, certain family meal dishes can become traditions, and are prepared to celebrate milestone occasions. Those who have worked in restaurants can attest that some of the best meals of their lives have been around the family meal table.

Chef O’Connell’s vision for ‘Starry, Starry Nights’ is to provide an opportunity for you to become part of a great chef’s ‘family’ for an evening.

Can I attend the reception and/or dinner without a room reservation?

A limited number of dinner-only tickets may become available after The Inn’s guestrooms are fully committed. Follow the Inn at Little Washington on social media for updates.
