The Five-Star French Laundry is a special dining experience, and meals here have a price tag that matches the uniqueness and quality of the food and wine. The menu is available with two options only: A nine-course chef’s tasting menu or a nine-course tasting of vegetables. The price tag? A cool $270 for each. The restaurant includes a subtle form of BYOB — diners are welcome to bring wines that are not represented on the wine list, except they’ll be charged a fee of $75 for each 750 mL bottle, with a limit of one bottle for every two guests at the table. Expect the same price tag and experience if you’re dining at The French Laundry for lunch, where the same kind of nine-course tasting menu offered at dinner is also served.
