We celebrated my birthday with the tasting menu at Fearrington House Restaurant. When we were seated, we were given a menu that included a birthday message (nice touch!). From there, the delicious food kept oncoming. Each course was beautifully presented and explained. I could tell our server, Derrick loved food as much as we did...he had no issue with our questions and comments. The chef did a phenomenal job selecting different flavors to pair together, and yet you could taste them individually as well. The menu changes often so it isn't worth discussing particular dishes beyond the signature chocolate soufflé which is always on the menu (it was divine). Come hungry if you do the tasting menu. There is so much to enjoy, even pre-dessert!
On comment on dress...they recommend a coat and tie for men. I would say maybe half of then I saw had coats and maybe 1-2 had ties. In my opinion, the meal is worth dressing up for, but you don't need to be super formal.
