Dining room at ad hoc, Yountville, CA

ad hoc Restaurant Review

: This half-mile stretch of Washington Street in Yountville is home to four establishments from renowned chef/restaurateur Thomas Keller: his temple of gastronomy The French Laundry, French brasserie Bouchon, Bouchon Bakery and ad hoc, which serves up simple, homey food with a pedigree. (The restaurant was originally conceived as a temporary placeholder restaurant, but became a permanent fixture thanks to the positive response from guests.) Chef de cuisine Katie Hagan-Whelchel, who worked with chef Rory Herrmann at Bouchon Beverly Hills, presents a four-course prix-fixe dinner menu that shifts daily. (There is also brunch on Sundays.) The menu comes pronged inside a plain brown file folder stickered with the all-lowercase ad hoc name on the tab. Casual servers in slate bowling shirts bring ample family-style platters for diners to dig into themselves. For instance, you might find a tomato salad with garden basil pesto and herb vinaigrette, followed by smoked brisket, a local cheese course and coconut cupcakes. Mondays tend to feature fried chicken in various disguises; it’s their busiest night of the week for a reason --- it’s truly divine. Opt for the wine pairings with your meal or make selections from the wine list. Behind ad hoc is addendum, a take-out spot offering boxed lunches (including the famous fried chicken) Thurs.-Sat.
