Opened in August 2015, Willa Jean celebrates Southern sensibilities with fresh, local ingredients. Named after Chef Partner Kelly Fields’ grandmother, who inspired her to pursue her passions, the restaurant and bakery serves breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the week, and offers Saturday and Sunday brunch.
The modern elegance of the dining room lends its charm to Fields’ haven of Southern-inspired dishes and sets the stage for the playful, nostalgic nature of the ever-evolving menu. Willa Jean’s menus are categorized by “snacks,” “the biscuit situation,” “sandwiches,” “hot plates,” and “desserts” and showcase everything from fluffy biscuits topped with fried chicken and tabasco honey to cookies + milk served with an eggbeater of fresh cookie dough. Heartier favorites include artichoke and cheese business, New Orleans style BBQ shrimp toast, fried chicken + spicy slaw sandwich on a house-made Hawaiian roll, as well as a seasonal-driven skillet pot pie.
