Straight forward, good food. Ad hoc demonstrates a simple approach to cooking. The best way to describe it would be, how a chef would prepare a meal at home for his family and friends. Very little manipulation is done to the ingredients, some of which are grown right outside in the restaurants own garden.
ad hoc was originally intended as a temporary restaurant, opened in the interim, until Thomas Keller would actually use the space for another concept. However, this temporary restaurant became so popular, that it became a permanent fixture in Yountville.
