Michelin-starred restaurant with social distancing mannequins; Home-use isolation units; Living like a Disney princess

When the Inn at Little Washington can host visitors inside its glamorous, rural Virginia digs, chef Patrick O’Connell plans to seat unused tables with mannequins wearing vintage, 1940s-style outfits.


The look and feel of the performance art project is still being worked out, but a spokesperson says couture sets will align “within the whimsical vein of the Inn’s reverently irreverent approach to hospitality.” The restaurant is working with Arlington’s Signature Theater and Design Foundry to build the “sets.”
