My wife rocks!  
Here is a list of the top 50 restaurants in the world. If you scan down the list, the top one in the USA is in New York (Per Se, described as "an urban interpretation of the French Laundry"). The second from the USA that rates is in Chicago (Alinea).

The third from the USA, number 12 in the world, is the French Laundry, up in Napa Valley.

My wife called today for a reservation, which you normally get two months out (call within a half-hour of the reservation line opening, they're definitely full within an hour). We do not have a reservation for two months out -- that was full, it's almost noon.

We have a reservation for this Sunday.

And right now, she's calling around and figuring out babysitting. My wife rocks.

Be prepared to spend a lot of money, and be prepared not to care at all.

Some day I'll make it there:)

Wow. Please to give a bite-by-bite report.

Yes'm! We will probably have to sneak in a notepad so that we can remember everything!

Ooh, I'm jealous. I've wanted to go there for a while, now. Have fun! :-)

The French Laundry was really really good. I'm glad we got a chance to go. It is a good memory to have.

It was also expensive enough that i don't know how easy it would be to go back - There are a lot of good places to eat and limited funds.

I hope you guys have a wonderful time.

I went there almost exactly a year ago. It was great. Drink a Turley Zin if you're looking to splurge on wine, nommmm.

I am so jealous. I am so freaking jealous! I've wanted to go there for years now! Have a fabulous time and we definitely want to hear all about it.

So, um, is it something to celebrate? :)

I'm so painfully jealous. :)
