My boyfriend and I will be out west in July and are thinking about trying for French Laundry reservations. We're both in the business, wine & restaurant. We know the rules about making reservations, assuming we get them, how much should we budget for this experience? I want to make sure we enjoy dinner without being stressed about how much it will cost. Their website says tasting menus are $240 a piece, that's fine, but what about wine prices? How much is the pairing? I have heard that per se builds the 'gratuity' into the cost of your meal, is this true at FR or will I have to budget for a tip as well? Thanks for your help!
