Thomas Keller of the French Laundry on the cover of The Wine SpectatorThe current edition of the Wine Spectator has a picture of Thomas Keller on the cover (left).

Keller is sitting in the garden of the world famous Napa Valley restaurant he owns, The French Laundry.

For those of you who don’t already know the French Laundry is not only America’s greatest restaurant, proclaimed at or near the top by just about everyone who rates restaurants. 

But, it is easily the hardest restaurant I have ever heard of to get a reservation.
