Phil Rosenthal makes a trip up to visit his friend, Chef Thomas Keller, and to explore his empire of restaurants, including the famed French Laundry. See the episode recap of the list of locations, restaurants, and attractions he visited on the show for the best of what to do in Napa Valley.


1. French Laundry

Phil meets with his friend and legendary chef Thomas Keller as they tour his assortment of restaurants in Napa Valley. They begin at his signature, 3-Michelin starred outpost, the French Laundry.

2. Bouchon

The next stop is the more casual, but still 1-Michelin starred, French bistro named Bouchon. It was created by Thomas Keller as a place for chefs to go after dinner service, as everything in the area closed by 9pm.

He lends a hand to make the fuhgeddaboutit, which is a Rice Krispie treat with a caramel layer dipped in milk chocolate and sprinkled with fleur de sel.
