The pinnacle of California dining, Thomas Keller’s French Laundry is epic, a high-wattage culinary experience on par with the world’s best. Book one month ahead at 10am sharp, or log onto precisely at midnight. Avoid tables before 7pm; first-service seating moves a touch quickly. This is the meal you can brag about the rest of your life.
