French Laundry in Smithville, MO?!?!?

Crazy, right?

My friend's husband SWEARS that a new restuarant has opened up in Smithville (on Main St.) that is somehow connected to Thomas Keller's French Laundry.

Of course my friend and I both accused him of smoking crack. BUT - we've become obsessed with getting to the bottom of this mystery. (Conveniently enough - neither of us really feels like working today.)

At first, the husband said the restaurant was actually called French Laundry. We tried calling information - nothing. However, my girlfriend started calling around to other places of business to ask them if they had heard of such a place. Someone finally said that there is a new place by the Courthouse (I didn't even know Smithville had a courthouse) called Justis.

Anybody know anything about this?

Considering all of our information is based on something like: "I heard it from a friend who heard it from a guy who was talking to his dentist" - I'm beginning to think that somebody from Smithville ate at French Laundry when he went to the courthouse in Napa.
