Description of lunch at the Wildwood Kitchen & Bar, an art-filled restaurant and bar located in the upscale Pavilions Shopping Center.
Two friends and I were spending a few hours on a Sunday recently perusing the artisan wares at the annual Kiwanis Art Fiesta held at the Pavilions Shopping Center. Lunch was also on our agenda and Wildwood Kitchen & Bar, one of several restaurants in the Pavilions Shopping Center, was our first choice. As two of the three of us were getting very hungry, we decided to try to beat the lunch rush. We did not have reservations, but we were agreeable to sitting at a high-top table so we were happily seated without delay.

Although we were seated indoors (our preference as the day was heating up), the back entrance of the restaurant was open to the large outdoor patio so we had the best of both worlds.
Our server provided us with the brunch/lunch menu. One friend ordered a bottomless mimosa (Poema Cava, Bruit sparkling wine, fresh squeezed orange juice) ($10) and my other friend and I each settled on a glass of Napa Valley Chardonnay ($8).

After asking a few questions, one friend ordered the soup of day – gazpacho ($8), to be followed by an Impossible Burger (100% plant based burger, sharp cheddar cheese, burger spread, pickled onions, tomato, lettuce, artisan bun) ($16).
The bottomless mimosa, served in a small carafe, was judged to be “just ok”. Both the gazpacho soup and Impossible Burger, however, were greatly enjoyed.
The other friend ordered the Grilled Chicken Sandwich (grilled chicken on a Ciabatta roll with herb aioli, smoked apple bacon, pickled red onion, Little Gems lettuce and fries) ($13). The Grilled Chicken Sandwich was declared to be “very good” and the fries served with it were very tasty.
I ordered the Chicken Salad (rotisserie chicken, mixed greens, carrots, red onion, Campari tomatoes, Laura Chenel goat cheese, six minute egg, pepitas, white balsamic vinaigrette) ($15). The salad was huge. I had ordered a salad as I was not overly hungry, but by the end of the meal I had virtually finished the bowl.
After asking about what was being offered for dessert, and confirming that the portion size was small, one friend ordered the chocolate cake (warm chocolate cake, French vanilla ice cream, raspberry) ($7). Each of us sampled the dish – which was delish. It reminded me of the molten lava cake I enjoyed on my first and only cruise.
Fortified, two of us resumed making the our rounds of the artisan booths while the third found a shady spot on the Wildwood Kitchen & Bar patio to await our return.
Chalk up another good experience at the Wildwood Kitchen & Bar.
