    • Editor's Description
      el Willy is the eponymous restaurant of Guillermo "Willy" Trullas, and it's a wildly popular, mid-range Spanish joint. Willy's cooking is more contemporary than traditional Spanish -- he does "juicy rice", not traditional paella -- but stops well short of molecular fine dining. It occupies the first floor of the lovely Diage house, including a spacious outdoor terrace with plenty of seating, and is consistently packed. Good wine list, and, courtesy of The Willy, plenty of personality.
