Nick that was amazing writing! Your descriptions, and little humorous interjections made it facinating - and riviting.

Nicolas,

Wow Wow and Wow! Thanks so much for taking the time to tell the full story of your experience. It's interesting to note that even though your experience was superlative, that "perfection" can still be improved upon.

ah, Nick, add me to the list of jealous admirers you have here. the description was delightful, and obviously i want to go, too! hmmmm, where ever will i find someone to foot that bill for me?

i've had the schramsburg & the le cave you mentioned at first & last, and love them both. if the rest of the wine was as super...

my bf and i just got back to the east coast from a weekend in napa ourselves (a friend was getting married sunday). the wedding & reception were at a resort/restaurant called soleil du auberge, which was super s****y with lovely views and a fantastic wine list itself. the bf said he'd found reviews saying some dishes competed favorably with french laundry's, and while i didn't write a spectacular novel like you did, we certainly enjoyed our reception meal.

long live the foodies & those that feed us!

Outstanding review of one of my favorite restaurants. I haven't been there in years, but your review brought back some great memories. While reading it, I could almost taste the dishes, based on your excellent descriptions. Thanks for sharing.

Thumbs up Outstanding!


I can't believe that you are not a professional restaurant reviewer. I was awed by your attention to details. Thanks for sharing your dining experience at the French Laundry with us.

My boyfriend is trying to get a job there after he graduates from the Culinary Institute of America. I can't help but hope he does after reading about how amazing your experience was.

I am presuming he will need to work a few other places first before he presents himself to Chef Keller. This is not a place to "begin," imho.
