Practical Questions for French Laundry tonight...

trixare4kids | Nov 26, 2007 10:24 AM

My God. I can't believe it. I've been dreaming about this for a very long time. The date has finally arrived and I get to experience FL tonight. I am practically beside myself with anticipation. Though I truly love food, I don't get to eat at places like this very often (in fact, I saved my pennies for a few months to afford this) so I plan to relax and enjoy every second of it. That said, I want zero worries or questions when I arrive and these are the ones I can't quite seem to find answers to.

1. Tipping:
a. Is it customary to tip something over and above the service charge?
b. Do we tip on wine?

2. Wine: (for party of 2)
a. Do they do a wine pairing with the tasting menu?
b. If so, does someone remember approximately what it costs?
c. Would it be better for us to choose a less expensive bottle (or two)?

Thanks for the help.. and feel perfectly free to give me any other pointers that might help with the experience tonight!
