It's hard to believe that it's been almost four years since our trip to the French Laundry and my first taste of Thomas Keller's cooking. I can never get enough of re-reading about that trip. That is a meal I remember eating! So for old time's sake, here's my post, It's All About Finesse and Jason's, A visit to the French Laundry. I'm getting hungry again just thinking about it. Perhaps it's time to start putting the money in the can again to save for a return trip. Of course, now I'd also need to save for the plane ticket to California, the hotel, and the rental car. But I think it'd be worth it. There's a magic there I've never experienced in any other restaurant, not even when I ate at Per Se last fall. The light, the food, the views, the smells, everything. For me it will probably always remain the best restaurant and the best meal ever.
