addendum, Yountville


If the best things come in small packages, there’s perhaps no smaller package quite as good as the shack-like building directly behind Thomas Keller’s restaurant ad hoc in Yountville. Formally known as addendum, the bite-size establishment is home to some of the biggest flavors I’ve ever experienced. As a Northern California girl, I’m mildly ashamed to admit that my first trip to Yountville was just a few weeks back. But better late than never, right? When a friend convinced me to make the quick trip from San Francisco to Yountville for a sunny lunch outing, I didn’t quite know what to expect. What I found, much to my delight, was a quaint and charming place chock-full of impressive food and drink. Enter, addendum.
My friend prepped me for the trip by explaining that addendum is known for its finger-lickin’ fried chicken, and I was immediately sold. With a limited menu and equally limited hours (they serve boxed lunches exclusively, Thursdays through Saturdays), our choice was easy: “We’ll take one of everything.”
For a seemingly steep $16.50, we had the choice of buttermilk fried chicken or barbeque (we got one of each), both served with drool-worthy, seasonal sides. We had potato salad and kale with pancetta, and house-made raspberry sorbet for dessert. Worth every penny.

You practically had to roll us off the picnic benches, but we managed to enjoy almost every last bite (and truth be told – even stopped by Bouchon Bakery for a macaron before heading out of town). If you’re in the neighborhood, addendum is absolutely worth a visit!
