I love friend chicken but for some reason seldom eat it. We had heard really good things about Ad hoc but did not get a chance to try it, walking by one day we say Addendum and I just had to give it a shot. Fun little spot in the back garden behind the restaurant pretty much just to get... More

Today was the second time at Addendum. Great outside dining at shared picnic tables. Inviting venue. But the fried chicken was the BEST ever. Moist, crispy crust, and 3 large pieces along with their own unique potato salad and cole slaw. The corn muffin was light and tasty, not sweet, and did not need butter to enjoy. Had diet coke...

The fried chicken was good (I guess little better than your KFC, popeye's, or other chain stores). Our fried chicken was a bit lacking in favor (maybe the cooks ease off the salt from other comments). We also ordered the pull pork and ribs. They look disgusting and did not taste all that better. We love the picnic setting. The... More

Great spot to grab a to-go gourmet lunch. We pre-ordered online (very recommended) - pick-up took less than a minute. We took ours to Pride Mountain and ate overlooking the side of the mountain. Even with the food slightly cold (as we drove a long way with it) it was delicious.

This restaurant was a crushing disappointment considering I had such high hopes it being in the French Laundry lineage. I realize it is not actually a part of the restaurant nor was the chef cooking but I thought it would still be a far sight better. I ordered the buttermilk fried chicken which was just okay and overly salty. The... More

Addendum is a little shack behind Ad Hoc that serves lunch Thurs-Sat during the warmer months. Choices are Thomas Keller's unbelievably succulent and flavorful (marinated) buttermilk fried chicken -- the key is in the herb marinade -- or one other dish, often a BBQ pork combo (really good, but nothing like the chicken. The first time I bit into this... More

My friend insisted we go here while in Napa Valley, she raved about the red velvet (seriously!) fried chicken she had there while on a work retreat. We went at about 11:00 am on a Saturday, apparently you have to go early so they don't run out. The special for the day I went was rosemary friend chicken. It was... More

addendum good fried chicken, good ribs, didn't care for the pulled pork. Nothing special about the macaroni salad or coleslaw-- both a bit on the bland side. $15 for 3 pieces of fried chicken or $15 for three rib lets & small pulled pork sandwich. Way overpriced when you realize its $5 per piece of chicken.

When in Napa nine months ago, we couldn't squeeze in a trip to Addendum to trying the fried chicken. It is only opened Thursdays-Saturday. This time my group of four decided to make time for this "shack" and try the infamous fried chicken. None of us enjoyed it thoroughly. Once we got past the price of $17 (tax included) for... More
