On our way to yet another adventure Saturday,Gail was furiously Googling to find a great place to eat. We ended up in Santa Rosa at Willi’s Winebar, on Old Redwood Highway to the north of the city. I have to say we were both surprised and impressed to find a restaurant this good this far off the beaten path.
Willi’s serves small plates, so we got to try a variety of dishes, and there wasn’t a clunker in the lot. I liked this place from the moment we sat down, and saw the way the table was set.
When I think of Santa Rosa, I sometimes think of Willybird, a famous fried chicken establishment. From now on, I’ll be much happier thinking of Willi’s Winebar, a seriously great place to eat.
