Fieri alums plan Windsor restaurant, Kin

Town Green eatery to focus on new American comfort and Italian classics

Two key members of Guy Fieri’s restaurant group are breaking off to start their own Windsor eatery, according to inside sources.

Taking over the recently vacated DePaoli’s on the Windsor Town Green, Brad Barmore and JC Adams plan to open a rustic stone-oven comfort food eatery focused on new American classics and Italian favorites. Named Kin, owners wanted a family-inclusive restaurant that wasn’t all about chicken nuggets and milkshakes — meaning grown up enough for the after-work crowd as well.

Barmore was GM for several of Fieri’s restaurants, as well as corporate beverage director, and sources say he’s hoping to do some interesting beers and wines at the restaurant.  Adams has been GM of two Johnny Garlics restaurants, including the Windsor location.

The menu is still in flux, but expect dishes like pizzas, lasagna, pasta, pork, chicken and seafood along with some tasty small plates.
