I guess I shouldn't be surprised. After all, ad hoc is owned by Thomas Keller, who also owned the famous (and coveted?) French Laundry. Their menu rotates daily and I remembered my friend was ecstatic when we were told Fried Chicken was on the menu the day we went.
I loved the bright and elegant interior design of the restaurant. Everything falls into place in the beautiful and relaxing environment in Napa.
You might questioned: it's been years since you were there, how can you remember? I can tell you I can still remember the taste of that chicken when I look back at these pictures. That's what pictures do for me. I was organizing my old photos and there were things I have temporarily forgotten but was reminded the second I saw the picture. I am sure you can relate to this too :)
|The blueberry yogurt was tangy and the granola was fresh and crispy|
|As you can see, the chicken was very crispy.|
It was seasoned perfectly, tender and juicy.
I probably would have finished it if I had this later in the day.
|The waffles was chewy but the sweet and savory combination was just not my thing for brunch.|
The maple syrup was delicious
|I remember I was not a big fan of the spinach but I loved the potatoes.|
The pecans add a nice touch to the dish as well.
|As if we did not eat enough already, we were offered cookies and orange sorbet!|
|The sorbet was refreshing and welcomed after the heavy but delicious fried chicken|
I remembered we had to get the cookies to go coz we just can't eat anymore!
