The French Laundry

While eating this meal the afternoon of our 1st anniversary, we both wondered aloud whether this was better than our actual wedding day....

I won't bore you with every detail of our experience at French Laundry (since I already bombarded you with image overload).....but know this....we had no regrets. It lived up to all the hype.

The service was amazing and we pretty much ate in a private room, next to a huge window overlooking their gardens and vineyards for most of our meal.

They do drink pairings with every course and we requested non-alcoholic, non-carbonated drinks so they just whipped up some amazing juices on the spot for us:

- Juniper Lime Juice - Green Apple, Ginger & Lime Juice - Orange, Vanilla Bean w Cream Juice - Homemade Ice cream Root Beer Float

These drinks were so good...they might have been our favorite part.

We were served about 13 courses and ate for a mere 4 hours. (You can right click on the menu to read every course.)

I can't stop smiling when I think about it. I was in foodie heaven.
