Question about The French Laundry

degustingdiary Mar 27, 2012 11:17 AM


I just secured a lunch reservation at The French Laundry two months from now and was told it's up to the chef on the day of as to whether an extended tasting menu could be accommodated. Does anyone have a sense of how likely it is that they'll permit an extended tasting menu request?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I just requested it when making the reservations.

      Yes, I tried that, but the reservationist parried my efforts. Perhaps it's a lunch thing.

        They told me the same thing when I made reservations for dinner. They were able to accommodate, not sure how likely it is though.
