Part of Thomas Keller
When Chef Thomas Keller was an apprentice traveling through France, he fell in love with the 3-star country restaurants -- so fine but also so comfortable. More than a decade later, when he began looking for a space to open a restaurant, a friend suggested he see a property in Yountville, California, north of San Francisco in the Napa Valley. When he stepped under the creeping roses to behold the French Laundry he knew immediately that what he'd seen in France could happen here. And that's how the French Laundry began, a uniquely American restaurant whose inspiration lies in the countryside of France.
