Fodor's Review

At this casual spot, superstar chef Thomas Keller offers a single, fixed-price menu ($52) nightly, with a small lineup of decadent brunch items served on Sunday. The dinner selection might include braised beef short ribs and creamy polenta, or a delicate panna cotta with a citrus glaze. The dining room is warmly low-key, with zinc-top tables, wine served in tumblers, and rock and jazz on the stereo. Call a day ahead to find out the next day's menu. From Thursday through Saturday, except in winter, you can pick up a boxed lunch to go—the buttermilk fried chicken one is delicious—at the on-site and aptly named Addendum.

Ad Hoc Review

Maybe it's our intimate table in the corner, away from the rest of the very lively restaurant; maybe it's the day's worth of wine tasting. Over the fall-off-the-fork chicken, seafood casserole, and, those donuts - we felt intoxicated with the food, the night...Per Se might have put me off Keller; Ad Hoc is on my US short list.
