While en route to the town of Napa in the Napa Valley, my brother turned into the town of Yountville to pass by famous restaurant called “The French Laundry.” To those who have already heard of the place, no we did not eat here. We just literally “passed by.” What makes this place so famous? You can’t just walk in for lunch or dinner. You have to make an appointment… usually 3 months in advance. At its website (http://www.frenchlaundry.com/) you can make an appointment from 2 months to year prior to your visit.

Their offer 2 set meals which cost around $300 per person.

Oh well, I probably will never eat here.

It was named “The French Laundry” because sometime in its history, it actually was a French steam laundry prior to it becoming a restaurant. (read more from the Wikipedia entry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_Laundry)
