Ultimate Tasting Menu if it can't be French Laundry

yumpassion88 | Aug 14, 2011 08:19 PM

I wanted to treat my parents to a meal at the French Laundry as a wedding gift (my wedding), but my dad will be out of the country after next month for several months and I don't think I can get a reservation before he leaves. I want the meal to be very special and an excellent and memorable food and wine experience that is creative but also doesn't leave you hungry from tiny portions or put-off by overly stuffy service.

I just moved back to the bay area from Seattle, so I don't know the food scene here well yet. Where do you think I should treat them to?

Here are tasting/multi-course dining experiences I'm considering. What do you think and do you have other suggestions?
