The bucolic Napa countryside surrounds Thomas Keller’s remarkable landmark restaurant that is considered one of the best in the world. America’s premier gastronomic destination offers a rarified nine-course prix-fixe for a dinner that lasts — rightfully — an entire evening. Reservations for one of the coveted fifteen tables are booked two months out, and many consider the experience to be the meal of a lifetime.
