From Michael Bauer's 1994 review of the French Laundry:
"At the new French Laundry there is no a la carte menu; diners choose from either a four- ($44) or five-course menu ($49), with as many as five choices in each category." (Current price is $115 for a five-course menu, $135 for a nine-course menu).
"The proof that the French Laundry is a wine-lovers' restaurant comes with the corkage fee: It's only $5, and most other places of this caliber charge twice that much." (Current corkage is $50).
