French Laundry, The
6640 Washington St. | 707-944-2380 | www.frenchlaundry.com
A full 65% of people who rated Thomas Keller’s restaurant traveled from outside the state of California order to eat there. By far the most famous chef America has ever produced, we could allot this entire review to writing about Keller’s signature dishes, which include Oysters and Pearls, truffle custard with black truffle debris, cauliflower panna cotta topped with Sevruga caviar and many others. But beyond the lengthy list of creations, what makes the French Laundry so special is the second-to-none attention to detail that the restaurant has exhibited since the day it opened. Wildly popular with some of our reviewers – many of whom make annual pilgrimages to the restaurant – one of our reviewers wrote of paying more than 40 visits to the restaurant.
