It's one of those day that you are too excited about visiting a new restaurant and forget the restaurant's operation hours and after driving miles to get there only to find it closed (Ad Hoc restaurant, Yountville, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays ). It was close to 6 pm, and I was very hungry. Luckily the neighbor restaurant Pacific Blues Cafe was open. The restaurant's kitchen area is viewable from the seating area. A couple of customers were dining at the time. Two chefs are busy waiting for the new orders. The servers are friendly and it's a cozy place inside. Within an hour, the inside seatings are filled with customers. Looking at their attire and greetings of each customers to each other, they are returning local residents and know each other. I ordered one of the specials of the evening - Sauted Halibut with dilled caper cream sauce, garlic mashed potatoes, and buttered vegetables. I also requested my Halibut to be cooked well as I like mine with crispy crust.
