DOING LAUNDRY ASHORE
The French Laundry in Yountville, California, ranks as both Thomas Keller’s signature restaurant and a world best. Expect to choose between two elaborate and extensive tasting menus (one is an exquisite vegetarian). Where else to indulge in his cuisine ashore? Try Bouchon Bistro and Bouchon Bakery ( New York, Las Vegas, Yountville, Beverly Hills), Ad Hoc in Yountville, and New York’s Per Se.
