  1. I got my reservation on Open Table, two months to the day I wanted to go. Good luck.
  2. My boyfriend doesn't eat oysters, and I typically don't...but it was an amazing dish. They did offer a truffle mushroom substitute for him that was equally amazing. There was one course that I didn't like, it was a scallop made into a weird sausage thing, with what I would say was a very rubbery texture. I only ate half, and the waiter came up to ask if I would like them to make something different, which I said I was fine, since we had several more courses to go. We did leave an additional tip, they were very attentive. My boyfriend wore a tie and jacket, the tie could have been left off

    Dinner! 2009

    Try using Port Wine, gives them a totally unique flavor.
  4. I had a GREAT dinner there....didn't photograph anything but the dessert. Don't know if I'd go again... a good experience...better made by the weekend.
  5. A little bakery/cafe in Tokyo had this on the wall: I always thought it was a great idea, but am much too lazy to actually do it. ← My plan is to take my stuff to Michaels and have a 3D type of thing built up, kind of a shadow box thing. If I do it, I'll post it on here.
  6. I think with the ones I got, the menu, a picture of my man and I, I may have a collage frame put together to always remember the event.
  7. First, please enjoy this special dinner and have a great birthday! Comment on wine: I think I mentioned this earlier but FYI, the Laundry has been distinguished by what I call a "full-service" sommelier dept. (by analogy to the once-common "full service" US gas stations where employees filled your tank, cleaned windows, checked tire pressure, etc. etc. and you didn't even have to know how to do any of those tasks). So that someone who liked wine but knew little about it could describe tastes and budget, and the sommeliers would come up with something very satisfying. (The sort of service th

  9. I started reading this thread, and plan on finishing it, but had a couple of etiquette questions for dining at the French Laundry. Luckily, I had no problem getting a reservation on the day I wanted, April 17th, my 40th birthday, this coming Friday! I can't wait. I was able to secure a 9pm seating while on line from Michigan on a slow internet connection. So my questions are, I obviously saw from the great review a few posts up, they offer a wine pairing menu, which I a wondering was it worth it? It would be a no-brainer, then going through a 100 page wine list, which is usually overwhel
  10. Does anyone know of an online source for purchasing cashews that were processed in peanut free plants? Thanks in advance.
  11. not sure if this helpful, but I wanted slider rolls last year, and rather than go with the Hawaiian rolls that a lot of people use, I asked a cupcake bakery if they were able to make some, and she did. Call around to some of the restaurants in your area that serve sliders and they may be able to direct you to their supplier.
  12. wonderful scenic pictures.....they could be postcards, the food looks pretty good too.
  13. very cool....I have an iphone with that app...I'll need to try this out.
  14. I got 7 out of 11....almost the worst out of everyone here
