The French Laundry experience...

Vise | Aug 19, 200503:55 PM

So managed to get myself reservations at French Laundry for mid-Oct to coincide with my trip to SF (coming from Toronto). Just wanted to see if anyone could provide some info on how long dinner typically takes, I've heard in the neighbourhood of 3-4 hours but looking for confirmation from some hounds who have been.

The reason I ask is primarily financial, my trip is an award from work but I can only expense meals from Thurs to Sun (reservations are on Wed night at 9:15). I'm thinking that if dinner is long enough I won't get the bill until after midnight, and I'll be ok to expense it cause technically it's a Thursday meal. It's a pain but given that they're paying for the whole trip I guess I can't complain too much...

Thanks in advance.
