    It looks like another year of French Laundry topping off the Michelin Guide for the bay area.

    I was surprised that Gary Danko did not receive 2 stars. I really enjoy the restaurant and feel the service is superb. I went there recently for my boyfriend’s birthday and it was one of the best meals we had.
