Dining at Ad Hoc Restaurant

Last Thursday, Karen and I had our 1st experience dining at Ad Hoc Restaurant in Yountville. It was amazing…  I could eat here every night and never get tired of it.
We started out with a first course of Grilled Quail Salad. It was served over frise with a wild mushroom ragout, fresh goat cheese, huckleberry sauce and crisp garlic chips. It was delicious. If hadn’t been in a  nice restaurant I would have picked up the quail and sucked the bones. It was that good!!
The main course was a Marinated Skirt Steak, served over golden turnips, rutabaga, swiss chard puree, creamy polenta, fried parsnips topped with herb-pine nut relish.
The next course was a Tome D’ Aquitane Cheese with Wildflower honey and palladin toast.
The Dessert course was a Bourbon Apple Tart served with a Butterscotch sauce and a cinnamon whipped cream.
We paid the corkage fee and brought our own wine, the corkage fee was $20. Then we had a wonderful Sauvignon Blanc with our honey and cheese. We had a nice Riesling with our Dessert. We had a great experience!! I hope I get the Ad Hoc cookbook for Christmas. 

I can’t wait to go back and have their Fried Chicken. Ad Hoc serves it every other Monday. (I have the recipe, here on my blog)

The cost for our dinner was about $170 including tax and tip. Next time I want to try more wines off their very extensive wine list. I can’t recommend this restaurant, enough

  1. You should definitely come back and try their fried chicken… it’s amazing! The best fried chicken I have ever had! And I tried cooking it at home, too. It was a lot of work because of the brining part but it was definitely worth the effort!

  2. mmm I went there on vacation a few months back and happened to go there for fried chicken night. mmmm it was good. if it weren’t across the country I’d go there every day until I ran out of money.
