I do apologize for bringing up this restaurant yet again. :-)
I just have a small question/clarification on getting a reservation at French Laundry.
Their web site says two months in advance, PHONE only. However, I got the impression from some posts here in the last month or two that if you show up in person that morning two months in advance, you can secure a reservation that way.
Is this true? Did they just say phone only but don't really mean it?
(and I know about open table but this reservation would be for 8)
