Ad Hoc – 9/17/08 (Anniversary Dinner)

by arnold on September 21, 2008

It was our third wedding anniversary, Thomas Keller was in the house, and it was fried chicken night at Ad Hoc. Not a bad way to celebrate.


Salad of Petite Romaine Hearts
marinated white anchovies, pickled red onions
torn garlic croutons, creamy anchovy dressing

~

Buttermilk Fried Chicken
tfl garden cucumber salad
country style whipped potatoes

~

The Cheese Board
marshall’s farm honey
spiced nuts

~

Parfait
house made granola, black mission figs
vanilla cream



I also found out that our anniversary is the day after Ad Hoc’s anniversary (it was their second) and may explain why Keller was in town. Our waiter, Dan, said Keller was at Ad Hoc three nights in a row, and when I asked why they also served fried chicken last Monday, he said Keller was hosting some friends and they wanted to eat fried chicken. Add that to the normal Wednesday night fried chicken and fried chicken night tomorrow, and that’s three fried chicken nights in eight days. If you’re an Ad Hoc fried chicken junkie…it’s been a good week.

Cheers to you and yours Arnold!

Again, your pics of Ad Hoc kick started my craving to head back out to Yountville.

Does Chef TK expedite/work the pass at Ad Hoc or is he in civilian clothes when he is there?

@David: When I’ve seen him there he’s having brunch or dinner with friends or family.
