The menu features a bourbon-glazed pork chop over smoked-cheddar grits ($21), grass-fed pot roast braised in beer ($17), and mac ’n’ cheese topped with applewood-smoked bacon ($14).
Kin owners Brad Barmore and JC Adams champion the flavors of approachable cuisine with entrees such as grandma’s pot roast and herb-roasted chicken. They enhance hearty dishes with local ingredients, braising grass-fed chuck roast in Moylan’s beer, for instance, and stirring Point Reyes toma cheese into housemade mac ’n’ cheese. There’s also an ample selection of draft beers and local wines.
Kin, which is situated in downtown Windsor, affords diners views of the lush town green from a covered patio. Inside the simple dining room, brick arches and polished wood accents abound. Still, even with all of this cozy luxury, Kin remains a true family-friendly restaurant—a place where actual thought is put into the kids’ menu. Instead of the standard spaghetti and meatballs, the menu tempts small appetites with cheeseburger sliders and grilled chicken with risotto. It even comes folded up like a paper fortune teller that not only tells kids what to order but also if they’re going to marry an astronaut or a hedge-fund manager.
