We’d hate to see anyone soar into Yountville this winter with hopes of snagging a last-minute table at the French Laundry or nibbling on macarons while wishing for a Thomas Keller sighting — because none of that will be happening after the holidays! The French Laundry is closed from January 1 to 19 (their annual winter closure), Bouchon Bakery is closed from January 1 to the end of the month (renovations of its retail area), and Ad Hoc is closed Jan 1 to the end of February (kitchen renovations). Bouchon will remain open throughout. Oh, don’t psych yourself up for Meadowood or Ubuntu, either. Don’t worry, we’re still jealous you’re going.
There’s always his garden! Right, TK?
