New Besh Group cafe and bakery Willa Jean opened its door in early August inside The Paramount building in the up and coming South Market District to much early acclaim. The new spot is home to an Intelligentsia Coffee program, numerous baked goods, breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and cocktails with Southern charm and an 'urban farmhouse' vibe. Here now, the early word from around the web.
The Best Cookies Ever News: WGNO's Meghan Kluth calls Willa Jean heaven for bread lovers and home to "literally the best cookies I have ever tasted." Also, this is the "first female driven restaurant of the BRG"—from pastry chefs Lisa White and Kelly Fields—so big ups, ladies.
