Have you seen food critic Tom Sietsema's 2013 Fall Dining Guide? And if so, made any reservations yet?

Although we highly suggests you visit these restaurants yourself, the Post's video team gives you a behind-the-scene snapshot of two restaurants that made Tom's list: Barmini and The Inn at Little Washington.

First, we meet Barmini's mixologist Juan Coronado as he experiments with cotton candy, dry ice and herbs.

And below, meet the Inn at Little Washington's cheese expert Cameron Smith ... and his ceramic cow named Faira.

A previous version of this post misspelled the name of the Inn at Little Washington's ceramic cow.
