Will be in San Francisco in February prior to some fellowship interviews and managed to secure reservations at The French Laundry for February 17th. While I'll be traveling with family (mother and aunt) who've always wanted to see the Bay Area, neither are 'foodies' and aren't willing to spend the cash to experience TFL. According to the fantastic reservationist I'll be seated at a 2-top and dining solo is 'not a problem at all, but if I'd like to bring someone they can certainly set the table for two.'
While I've certainly dined at other high end restaurants as a solo (Le Cirque and Eleven Madison Park) it just seems that TFL is on a whole different plane. Have any other Hounds dined solo at the Laundry and if so, was it awkward at all? Would it be worth looking for another dining companion? Thanks.
