Tuesday at the Table

Hubby, my mom, and I are off and about on a bit of a holiday. Less than 24 hours in town, and we already have a favorite meal. After the second or third mention of "Willi's" as a place we couldn't miss, we agreed to head on over there and find out what the talk was about. The official name of the restaurant was "Willi's Seafood & Raw Bar", and though we went neither seafood nor raw, we enjoyed every bite. And sip.
It was really the surprising bits of flavor and unexpected ingredients that made the difference... the goat cheese in the ranch dip for the fries, the pea sprouts in the pork roll's slaw, the roasted lemon on the asparagus, and the mint and sweet soy on the lamb. These were all 'small plates' that we enjoyed sharing. And then, oh my goodness, the dessert, which included words like caramelized, peanut butter mousse, and chocolate crunchies. Yes, please! Not sure if this meal can be beat.
