My Food Bucket List

What's it say about me that I have a food bucket list? Aye aye aye, anyway these are the experiences food related that I'd love to have before I'm all "peace out" and stuff.
  1. French Laundry- Yountville, CA
    Thomas Keller has a 3 Michelin star restaurant near Napa , CA that is world renowned. I'd love to check out all of his restaurants for that matter but French Laundry has been on the radar since I can remember.
  2. Kikunoi- Kyoto
    I saw television a show that featured this place once and it spoke to me. It spoke of timeless elegance and a commitment to a very specific attention to detail.
  3. Sukiyabashi Jiro- Tokyo
    There are few food experiences that I genuinely could see making me cry in a really contented, emotionally satisfied way. This is one of them. I can't think of another place more stead fast, more bent on consistency than what I've heard of this place.
  4. Croissants and wine in Paris
    I don't have a specific place in mind, nor do I have a specific cafe. This just seems magical.
  5. Swan Oyster Depot- San Francisco
    I can officially check this place off my list. I've been there, and every minute of the wait in line and every penny I spent was well worth it. This place does fish, and other seafood and they do it well. No a lot of frills, just really good ingredients prepared in the most simple ways. I'll be back.
  6. New York City hot dog cart
    Also can check this off my bucket list. I can tell you the idea of it surpassed the actual experience. NYC is a magical place, and maybe there was a time a hotdog cart added to the magic but for me those days are gone. Pizza, that's where the NYC magic is for me.
  7. Slice of NYC pizza pie.
    I can scratch this one off the list too. I had the privilege of dining at Lombardis in Manhattan and the magic was all up in that biz.
