I'd give this one three and a half if I could. A relatively quick and easy read for those who love light hearted memoirs and those who love the intricacies of fine dining. I think I appreciated this more since I had an existing knowledge of Thomas Keller and The French Laundry which helped set up the book since the majority of it takes place at Keller's new NYC establishment Per Se, although that's not to say one wouldn't enjoy it if they didn't know anything about it before reading. Definitely gave me an appreciation for all the ridiculous detail that goes into every aspect of fine dining, including the service that Thomas Keller thinks should be "invisible".
