Nestled discreetly in a historic former steam laundry in Yountville, The French Laundry has been a pilgrimage-worthy destination for years. It’s another lauded establishment by Thomas Keller–the only American-born chef to have two three-starred Michelin restaurants. Although you’ll pony up for a meal like this, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Even if you can’t get a reservation, experience it vicariously through the gorgeous three-acre garden across the street from the restaurant, which is open to the public.
