Jaded Toad opens

New barbecue spot opens in former Mamma Pigs location

Sooie! The former Mamma Pig’s barbecue in Windsor is once again smoking as the Jaded Toad opens for business June 7, 2012.

On the menu are baby back ribs, barbecued chicken, sliders, cornbread, steamed clams, salmon, and pan-fried frog legs according to owner Leo Tocchini. The culinary school grad and Tony Roma’s alum will be manning the grill daily, after giving up his gig as director of concessions for Santa Rosa Entertainment Group, a chain of movie theaters owned by his family.

Locals say the vibe is “cautiously optimistic” as the restaurant starts service. Mamma Pigs closed just months after opening when opening chef and former Mirepoix chef Matthew Bousquet and his wife left suddenly, also closing their cafe, Bistro M.
