Probably our overall favorite restaurant in the entire Napa Valley, because it’s Thomas Keller food without Thomas Keller restaurant pretense. Sure, you could eat down the street at The French Laundry, and you probably should someday (if you can get that reservation - good luck). But Ad Hoc is the kind of place you could go to multiple times a week. The family-style set menu changes daily, and includes a salad, some sort of meat entree, a cheese course, and dessert, all for $55 per person. It’s approachable and excellent, and we’ve never been disappointed.
