Eater National has the full report on the rowdy Los Angeles happenings (pictured, above left); a "more timid affair," with dogs in-tow, in New York (above right); and the peaceful protest in Wine Country
"The French Laundry generously provided lemonade and cookies, which was partaken by most of the protesters," one person said.
Adding to this report, we've learned the French Laundry also shared its daily "Tasting of Vegetables" with the vegan animal rights group and regular dinner service was not affected. We asked if the protests would have an affect on the Kellerverse going forward.
And the group said:
Should any legislation be passed regarding Foie Gras, the Thomas Keller Restaurant Group will keep within full accordance of all legal regulations.
