I searched the web a bit for the latest news in the French Laundry's renovation/service status. It appears it re-opened in May with partial service, but I have not come across any recent news or posts (here or otherwise) on whether it has returned to full time service.
Has anyone eaten there since the re-opening, and has it returned to full service? And is it true that they no longer accept walk-in reservations? (http://www.frenchlaundry.com/tfl/tflc...)
I can't imagine how the concierges reserve tables unless they have a separate phone line now (which I guess is not too surprising).
