I would like to know which you would go to if you could only select one of these two restaurants. I would like to hear from individuals who have actually dined in both restaurants. Also, hotel choice if going to French Laundry? I am thinking the Hotel Yountville.
I live withing driving distance of Manresa (restaurant in Los Gatos) and went there several years ago and enjoyed the tasting menu. This was about it's second year being open. I have yet to dine at the French Laundry.
