Move over French Laundry, Thomas Keller’s going take-out?
The latest venture by the King Keller is literally in his backyard, serving up Ad Hoc’s famous buttermilk fried chicken and barbecue from a walk-up window. First-come, first-served, it’s lunch in a box with two sides (we had corn succotash and potato salad) for $16.50 Thursday through Saturday from 11am to 2pm. TK was dining on the patio himself on our first visit, seeming well-pleased while construction workers, locals and a handful of eager foodies made a bee-line for the upscale-downscale grub. Don’t miss dessert, a Creamsicle-style ice cream cup.
Addendum @ Ad Hoc: 6476 Washington St., Yountville
