French laundry

Postby Tojarg В» 17.01.2020

.

I am happy to help you plan your trip to Napa. If you need a free winery trip planning agenda please give me as much time as you can due to the large number of requests. I can typically turn around a custom agenda in 3 days.

Happy also to help you with restaurant and hotel recommendations, all honest and unbiased and based on my own experiences. You can set your address, phone number, email and site description in the settings tab.

Link to read me page with more information. Guest Posts Welcome! Even if that's a slight exaggeration it's very slight, it's three Michelin Stars proof that it's more than hype. I pulled up the unassuming building and into their tiny lot - Wait! I can't take Chef Thomas Keller's spot. I quickly pulled out into the street and I walked a half block dressed in a blue sport jacket that seemed way too fancy for Napa but way too casual for what I was about to do.

I had stopped many times at The French Laundry to peer into the windows when it was closed or to take a photo with my selfie grin in front of the sign but have never dined here.

But tonight that would change. Come with me as I dine for my first time at The French Laundry. Before we continue let me tell you how to get a reservation at The French Laundry. While it's rumored that hotel concierges can pull strings and American Express holders get special treatment, for most people you have to reserve online at the EXACT moment they open reservations.

It's a bit confusing but on January 1st they open reservations for March and April. On March 1st they open reservations for May and June. You MUST book via their website , forget about calling them and trying to skirt the system.

And you MUST be ready to book at and I suggest you be very flexible as to your times and dates as you snooze, you lose. Need to cancel? You are out of luck. Think of The French Laundry reservation the same way as a concert ticket. You buy it, it's yours. You can't make it, oh well, thank you very much.

Oddly they allow you to transfer it so if you really can't make it you can give it away or sell it to a friend, both only worth exploring if you are in a jam. Bottom line, you need to go into this knowing that there is no backing out or changing your mind once you bought the reservation.

It's 9 courses, not including the opening "appetizers", aka Amuse Bouche. If you feel the service was impeccable then no one will complain with adding additional tip. Just don't feel like you must add additional tip as that's the whole idea. Take a moment, browse the cookbooks and other items, and if you can afford it, know that I appreciate your business and look forward to being here for you when this is all said and done.

Thanks everyone and stay safe. Like a couple of country bumpkins we arrived too early there's no bar - what do you think this is, Chili's? They seated us instantly and my nerves settled. They were friendly! They were young! They were not stuffed shirts wondering what in the world was a guy like me was doing there. It felt professional, but friendly, and I like that.

And then it began. The idea behind The French Laundry is to give you bites of pure deliciousness, to make you want more. This one did just that. The servings are not huge but every plate was more delicious than the last so you didn't care. And then another amuse, his "Ritz Cracker" that was heaven on Earth. One bite, I can only say that the cheese inside was tangy and tantalizing and if I was falling for the hype let me fall - it was so great.

Enough amusing me, let's get onto the meal! This is it! The moment where the images we've all seen in books and on TV become reality. The oysters were butter poached and creamy, the caviar delicately popped in my mouth, they could serve this, close the kitchen and say goodnight and no one would complain.

I rate this 10 out of The French Laundry amazes me. For no good reason they brought out an extra course for us to try, the Hen's Egg filled with white truffle custard. Amazing flavors, yes, but even more amazing is the precision used to cut the egg shell. Yes, that's a real egg shell that could not be straighter or more smoothly cut if a laser was used. Maybe it was. Rates 8 out of This tiny salad brought back all the memories of childhood with the freshness and sweetness of the Santa Rosa plum combined with the flavors of fresh vegetables that pop the taste buds like no supermarket produce can.

Refreshing, zesty, sweet, smiles on our faces. Another 10 out of The rare trout was like the best sushi you've ever had and the smoked trout dumpling was like eating a guilty pleasure.

In all a bit like a bagels and lox sort of thing but once again done with style and finesse and elevated beyond what you think it might be. Alaskan King Crab "a la plancha" with garden summer squash, marscapone enriched Anson Mills polenta, Roma tomato confit, and creamy lobster broth. I am still dreaming about this dish, a nice, plump and generous piece of King Crab that was succulent and delicate, the fresh zing of the vegetables, the texture of the polenta, and that sauce, oh that sauce, like a lobster X That's a roma tomato "confit" on top.

This one rates 10 out of 10, easy. Of course this isn't just bread and butter. Delicious, and a nice set up for the next dish. Rating 7 out of With creamed Brentwood corn, glazed garden turnips, La Ratte Potato Puree, and caper-brown butter "consomme".

A quail is a bird so I expected, well, a bird! But instead I was served a dish that looked a lot like a scallop but was in reality a quail sausage made from the quail thighs and topped with a tiny crisp of potato to give it a crunchy yet delicate texture.

The "consomme" sauce was to die for, made with caper-brown butter. This one rates 10 out of When they offered the Wagyu steak upgrade I hesitated. I initially declined but then flagged the waiter down around the second course and asked if I could change my mind. And am I glad I did. I have never had Wagyu beef before and certainly very few people outside of the very best steakhouses in Japan have had Wagyu of this quality.

It is simply the best, highest quality cut of Wagyu you can get in the US. And it was life changing. That sounds a bit cliche but this absolutely was the very best thing I have ever eaten in my entire life.

I want it again but also don't as I fear it will never live up to this night. The texture was tender like a filet but but not like a filet. The flavor was deep and rich with fat like a rib eye but not like a rib eye. It was the real thing, a steak that was the most flavorful steak I had ever eaten. And right there I knew that Anthony Bourdain was right. My wife went with the standard, a tender lamb with a tiny lamb "riblet" and it was also awesome.

She gave me the tiny bone which was very nice and very tasty, I gave her a bite of the Wagyu which she loved but thought was enough as it was so rich, and we both agreed that this final course was like a fireworks grand finale. I thought we were wrapping things up and when they said there was a cheese course I was thinking little bites of cheese before dessert and then they brought this. And then the final course, dessert. And it kept coming. And coming. Mind you, we are two average sized people who just ate the meal of a lifetime.

I think we did a pretty good job devouring them. And to torture us they brought out a box of chocolate truffles and asked us to choose one. I went classic with a salted caramel with a gold fleck on top yes, I am fancy and my wife did a gorgeous passion fruit and matcha filled one. And then, it was over. Three hours. I was done. I was happy. And just like when your favorite band leaves the stage and then surprises you with one last encore, the waiter asked if I would like to see the kitchen.

Response from Ellen Go here Reviewed this property. They seated us instantly and my nerves settled. And there I was, watching the french happen as the chefs carefully plated dishes and the waiters calmly took their places. That's a roma tomato laundry on top.

Retrieved April 28, The French Laundry, Yountville. Despite its constant evolution, the restaurant has always stayed true to its classic values, with unapologetic loyalty to pressed linens, fine china and touchstone dishes such as butter-poached lobster.
