How to get into French Laundry

Yesterday the DH and I made another trip to Per Se. In these dark times, the silver lining, truly, is the the availability of tables at the best restaurants, and the abundance of extended Restaurant Week / prix fixe menus (Picholine, Daniel, Jean Georges). Since we've gone to Per Se so many times in the past 6 months, we've gotten to be very friendly with the people there. The DH is quite the foodie and loves to compare notes with the Captains on how to prepare Keller's food at home in our non-3-star-Michelin-tiny-NYC kitchens. They put us in touch with the French Laundry staff, who have graciously accommodated our request for a table when we're out there early May. Who says you have to use that guy who has scripted out Open Table?
Our starter: Per Se's "Soup and Sandwich": Kabocha squash 'veloute' with quatre épices mousse; Pork belly, arugula purée and black winter truffle sandwich
