On March 1st, the menu for the evening included a first course of salad of baby mixed greens with pickled carrots, red onions, watermelon radishes, Mt. Vikos feta, black olives, served with sherry vinaigrette, a second course of braised kurobuta pork short ribs with scarlet runner bean ragout, Hobbâ€™s bacon lardons, roasted red bell peppers, wilted arugula, and a side of pencil asparagus. The third course was Cowgirl Creameryâ€™s Pierce Pt. with Marshallâ€™s farm honey, and herbed walnuts and finally a mouth-watering fourth course of pear cranberry crisp with vanilla ice cream. The menu is priced at $48 per person.
Overall, Ad Hoc is a wonderful addition to the Valleyâ€™s culinary tapestry. The restaurant is perfect if you want a casual dining experience without sacrificing the quality of the food. The service was slightly less than perfect, however, the experience as a whole is well worth a second, third, and fourth visit. I rate Ad Hoc a strong 4 out of 5.
