Want to know what it’s like to eat at Ad Lib by Thomas Keller? Well I can tell you about it and show you. Ad Lib is was the pop-up restaurant in the Silverado Resort, serving American comfort food, in TK’s fashion of perfection. With the French Laundry Kitchen under renovation, he opened Ad Lib in order to keep the staffing family on board while TFL slows down a bit with closures and such. TFL is still open- bee tee dubs.
Let’s look at the food… it’s so seriously delicious that I’ve been twice! So you walk into the Silverado resort and into a banquet room that has been transformed into a beautiful white tablecloth Thomas Keller restaurant overlooking the golf course.
As you are seated, The Parker House Rolls arrive. These brioche buns are so soft and piled with saled butter… Seconds please.
Guess What? Foie Gras has been all good in CA again for a while, so let’s embrace with the Foie Gras Parfait, topped with Rhubarb Gelee. I ate the leftover foie on a croissant for breakfast the next morning!
Can Steak Tartare get any better?
It’s not often you have a dish that should be so simple, but ends up changing your life. This clam chowder is that dish. I put my first spoonful in my mouth, my eyes lit up, my taste buds exploded, and I exclaimed “Holy Fuck!”
Chicken Schnitzel with Brown Butter
Pork and Beans and Mac and Cheese!
Chopped Steak with mushroom gravy and onion rings. Ive had it twice, its as delicious as it looks!
This is what a perfect shepherd’s pie looks like, there were no leftovers.
Behold! Short rib Wellington, carved tableside!
And lets end with every dessert on the menu.
