We are going to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and want to make it very special. So, we have definitely narrowed it down to Vidalia 24(post RJ) or the Inn at little washington. Which do you think would be more memorable. Vidalia 24 will put us in the kitchen, so it will be very intimate and private. Any diners been there (V24) since RJ left?

    10th anniversary. Congrats! V24 is great...but you can run into a consistency issue depending on the night and volume. IALW is always consistent and accommodating. Restaurant Eve is also a good option.

      Having gotten married at the IALW 3 years ago and been there for our first two anniversaries, a number of dinners, overnight stays and planning to be there for our 3rd anniversary in October - fairly safe to say I recommend the Inn.

        Go to Inn at Little Washington and make a great celebration of your 10th anniversary. Arrive early and walk around the historic town. Have cocktails in their lounge and a wonderful dinner. Spend the night in the most comfortable room you ever stayed in. Don't worry about the BR floor being cold. It's heated. You will never forget your visit to ILW.

        Dine at the Chef's Table in the Kitchen. Dinner reservations are guaranteed for overnight guests. One day when you have time fly to Knoxville, TN and spend a few nights at Blackberry Farm for your anniversary. You won't forget that experience. It is located on an estate about 30 miles SW of Knoxville, TN near the Smoky Mountains. The food is outstanding. The rooms as well.

        Blackberry Farm @ 1471 West Millers Cove Road, Walland, TN 865 - 984 - 8166.

        Go to Vidalia 24 for your birthday. Good luck and best wishes.

          THE KITCHEN, CHEF'S TABLE EXPERIENCE IS TRULY A MEMORABLE PAGENT. HAVING SAID THAT, IT COMES WITH A PRICE IN ADDITION TO THE DINNER PRICE, THE CHEF'S TABLE CHARGE RUNS FROM $300.00-450 DEPENDING ON NIGHT OF THE WEEK; YOU CAN PARTICIPATE AND INTERACT WITH THE 15 LINE COOKS AS MUCH OR AS LITTLE AS YOU CARE TO GET INVOLVED. THE KITCHEN STAFF IS VERY ACCOMODATING. THE OPENING OF THE KITCHEN DOORS IS WORTHY OF A VIDEO!!!!(ENOUGH SAID DON'T WANT TO SPOIL THE SUPRIZE.

            Thanks! However, I think you are referring to the chef's table at IALW. We are not considering that. The choices are IALW regular table or Vidalia 24.
