French Laundry- Topical Questions

Navin R Johnson | Apr 10, 2007 04:04 PM

Hi- it's been a few years since we dined at TFL but we have an upcoming reservation and I had a few questions that I hope others may be able to help with.

I saw that the price has gone up to $240, service included. I know that includes gratuity, and read some other posts that suggests that price now includes coffee/tea service, sparkling water, anything else? If it covers those as well as the tip on wine then the final charge may not be much higher.

I've also read several accounts of a longer tasting menu- 15 courses or so, soup, salad, sashimi, egg, foie gras, etc. Something like what Tony Bourdain had in his famous visit. This is mentioned nowhere in their official materials- does anyone know if this is available to mere mortals or just VIPs? Any idea how much more this costs?

Thanks in advance.
