We've already talked about the best restaurant in America and what it's like eating there. This time it's about the best restaurant in California and the food it serves. The French Laundry restaurant was opened in 1994 in Napa Valley and became famous for its stunning and inventive presentation as well as for the use of only fresh ingredients. You can choose between two types of menus for $310 - the chef's tasting menu or the vegetable-tasting menu. These menus change daily and don't use the same ingredient throughout.
