Willa Jean's Bakery Game is 'Close To Flawless'

Gambit critic Helen Freund heads to Besh Group hotspot Willa Jean in the Warehouse District: "It's a near-perfect bakery operation" from pastry chefs Kelly Fields and Lisa White with a stunning selection of exceptional baked goods, but "overall, Willa Jean is...still in the process of figuring out how to offer a reliable full-service restaurant experience."  Service "isn't sharp" and prices sometimes come with sticker shock, but the biscuit-based dishes, salmon tartine, and griddled banana bread are worth a try.
