Ad Hoc Fried Chicken Returns to Bouchon Monday
There are few better things in life than perfectly crispy fried chicken, when it's done right of course.
Leave it to none other than master chef Thomas Keller himself to create the most delicious version of this Southern treat on the West Coast. (If we're talking about the best in the country, our vote is with Willie Mae's Scotch House in New Orleans. We still have dreams about their chicken and butter beans.)
Keller managed to make this dish popular at Ad Hoc up in Yountville, but on the first Monday of each month, the kitchen at Bouchon offers in on the menu.
From 5:00 p.m. - 10:30 p.m. the team will be busting out buttermilk fried chicken served with two seasonal sides. There are always dessert specials too. You can also order the meal to-go, but the best way to do this is to get in early for Bar Bouchon's happy hour, enjoy a discounted cocktail, and then head up for a relaxing dinner in the stately dining room.
The meal runs $38. You can make your reservations by calling in or visiting their site.
