Willi's Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: It may be hard to see the sign for this spot, but the crowd brimming from the entrance is a dead giveaway. They flock here for tasty, far-flung small plates---to share, or not. Under “locally grown,” choose Liberty Farm duck with smoked cheddar polenta or sautéed Brussels sprouts with sausage and Pt. Reyes Blue. Take crunchy fries for a French dip in truffled aïoli, or catch the Mediterranean influence across the sea with Moroccan-style lamb chops cloaked in a honeyed barbecue sauce, and deeply caramelized Tunisian roasted carrots with pine nuts and mint. Asia has its representatives, with five-spice pork belly pot stickers, and short ribs decked with quince chutney and long beans. The revolving “Bacon of the Month Club” dish might cover the globe by itself. The wine allows more sampling possibilities: two-ounce, five-ounce, and half-bottle pours, perhaps from the “something completely different” category. No matter what style of wine you choose, there's sure to be a savory dish that partners perfectly. A cozy dating rendezvous.
