After a week full of devastation and heartbreak, we are reopening @_tfl_ today; we look forward to welcoming guests back to Yountville. Although the fires now have greater containment, there is much to be done in the Napa and Sonoma valleys. Our hearts are heavy for those have lost so much. Thank you to the first responders, firefighters and law enforcement. #drinknapasonomawine#napafires
To all of our customers and clients, neighbors, partners and staff of all of our restaurant properties in Yountville. We thank you for all of your concerns and outreach. Everyone is working hard to normalize our situation in these extreme times. The current fire condition in Yountville remains unchanged. The town of Yountville reports that the Partrick and Nuns Fire on Mt. Veeder has grown more active and the smoke volume has significantly increased and is much more visible. We continue to monitor, and if conditions change we will update you. We are here to offer whatever comfort and sense of community that we can. Currently we are operating with the following schedules with collective efforts from our combined local restaurant teams: • The bakery is opened daily from 7:00am through 5:00pm • Bouchon is opened daily 11:30am – 8:30pm • Ad Hoc will reopen Sunday, October 16th for dinner service • The French Laundry will reopen on Tuesday, October 17th for dinner service If you are in the area and your local agency uses Nixle - text your zipcode to 888-777 to opt-in to receive fire condition updates.
Update as of 10.11.2017 12:00pm: The overnight brought additional evacuations both north and west of Yountville city limits, and our thoughts are with our neighbors and staff who have had to relocate. We opened the bakery this morning and please stop in for some complimentary hot coffee if you are heading up or down valley and are in need. Bouchon Bistro has opened its doors for lunch and plans to remain opened for dinner; as long as there is a need, and or staff is not in harms way. Ad Hoc plans to open tomorrow evening given the same conditions. The French Laundry remains closed until further notice. We will update you if anything changes. If you are in the area and your local agency uses @Nixle - text your zipcode to 888-777 to opt-in to receive fire condition updates.
To all of our customers and clients, neighbors, partners and restaurant staff. We are currently safe in the town of Yountville and are sending thoughts and prayers for all those greatly affected by the fires in Napa, Sonoma and all areas of northern California. Our restaurants in Yountville have limited resources, yet are here to support and provide sustenance and comfort to those in the area whether visitors or locals. Bouchon Bakery is opened today as long as we need to be, and Bouchon Bistro will open at 5:00pm with a limited menu and local staff. Please visit us there. The French Laundry will be closed this evening and Ad Hoc will resume for service as normally scheduled on Thursday evening. We will closely evaluate the situation as the surrounding areas become more stable and send updates frequently. If you are looking for a way to help, please see: http://sacb.ee/beV4 Please stay safe!
Our thoughts go out to our neighbors and others affected by these devastating fires. Our #yountville restaurants and bakery are closed today due to the valley-wide power outages. Our teams are looking forward to welcoming guests as soon the situation improves. Please stay safe.

Thank you for your gracious hospitality today. I thoroughly enjoyed touring The Souq with you and learning more about Kuwait's specialties. The dishes you prepared for me featuring flavors of your local cuisine were delicious and inspirational. Keep up the great work!

We lost a dear friend today, Ingrid Bengis. She was our lobster purveyor for more than two decades. She was a pioneer, developing a network of fisherman and packers in a remote part of Maine, maintaining one of the highest sustainable standards of fishing practice. She had a deeply searching mind and we will her miss her lively conversations and teachings. We will forever honor Ingrid for the impact she has made on all our lives and on our profession. Our thoughts are with her family, friends and Stonington community.

“Well, I can tell you on our first anniversary there weren’t this many people. There were twelve of us and we were very happy to be on this property having made it through our first year. Of course none of us, including myself, had any grand vision for what The French Laundry would become. We came to work every day with one common goal: to do a little better than the day before. And with the belief that extraordinary things will happen. You are an example of that extraordinary thing that has happened to this restaurant. I look around at each of you and see all of the work that you have done whether you’re new or have been here for a longer time. I toast to all of you and offer my deepest thanks. Happy anniversary!” #tflevolution#oneteamonedream#kaizen
