CHEF TASTING MENU

The French Laundry has only 16 tables so it’s extremely difficult to get a reservation. They take reservations two months in advance to the day, every morning starting at 10 AM Pacific Time. Luckily, we got a 11:30am spot.

Lunch, like dinner, includes a couple Amuse-bouche items followed by 9 courses and concludes with Mignardises which are bite-size desserts. Each dish was unique and reflected the flavors of summer and featured vegetables from their garden. Every item on the dish was cooked and composed seamlessly and complimented one another. I have no doubt that my next visit here will be just as good, if not better.
