Review: From the same owners of The Sycamore, signature food and drinks are served at the Willows.
The great part is it’s open for lunch.
Pork belly donuts with maple Makers Mark glaze were definitely have enough Makers Mark in the bottom of the bowl and the syrup made it a good kick.
The deviled eggs with Sriracha and smoked chili powder were refreshing.
Plenty of burgers and sliders. Beer battered fish, lamb and fried chicken were all pretty good. The fries were crisp.
It’s a full bar service if you so incline to grab a drink. This would be a good place for after work drinks, evening bites and hangout.

Cucumber yogurt soup was a bit light and almost watery. The taste was good though and just needed to be thicker.
The poppyseed lox was with a denser style bagel, fresh and delicious. The salmon was at good quality.
The drip coffee (Ethopian blend) was a bit too (more…)
