Willi's Wine Bar, Santa Rosa

Had a very nice dinner on their patio Tuesday evening. Sampled several items and shared all of it.

*Warm Skillet Bread with Green Garlic,
Cherry Tomatoes & “Holy Oil”
*Sweet Pea Mac-n-Cheese with Spring Onions &
Smoked Ham Hock “debris”
*Liberty Farms Pulled Duck BBQ, White Cheddar Polenta
*Moroccan Style Lamb Chops, Preserved Lemon Couscous,
Spiced Almonds & Arugula

Not a weak link in any of the four above, all were excellent the standouts for me were the mac-n-cheese and the lamb chops.

Finished up sharing,
*Warm Scharffen Berger Flourless Chocolate Cake
Peanut Butter Caramel, Vanilla Bean Ice Cream & Sea Salt Peanuts.
This was very good, maybe a notch below everything else but really picking nits :)
Washed it all down with a couple glasses of red and white wine.

Food was spaced out nicely to be able to relax and enjoy the flavors.
Been to Willi's (here) and Bravas (sister restaurant, similar concept, different cuisine) a few times and while both have excellent food we give the edge (slightly) to Willi's.
