My wife and I just recently tried Windsor a couple of weeks ago, and again this last Monday for the beer / wine dinner. The first was good, the second was fantastic.
After the wine dinner, we stayed over to enjoy another glass of the Pennywise Petit Sirah. Lingering,we had the opportunity to chat with Susan Kaempfer of the New Albany Farmers Market and with Chef Cory Cuff. I managed to score some leftover pork terrine and the identification of the fabulous mustard it was served with. It's Pommery Moutarde de Meaux
, by the way.
BTW, my favorite beers were the NABC Thunderfoot and the Dogfish 90 Minute IPA. Yummy!
Folks, The Windsor needs our support. Diners were sparse for both of our visits. It's worth a trip over to give them a try. We'll be sure to attend their next event.
