I thought I would drop you a line and let you know about a new spot in Windsor that is incredible. Maybe you have already heard about Odyssey. It is in the former spot of L’Assiette, kind of hidden away just off the town green, but it’s soul is 1000’s of miles away. It is hip and modern, and shows Fellini films on the wall like Foreign Cinema in SF. It is to Windsor what St. Rose Cafe is to S.R.
We started off mixed olives and rosemary flatbread, $5. I can’t really describe how great it was other than to say it is right out of Italy. Grilled local sardines with fennel and arugula sauce. Awesome!! Seared tuna with fava bean tortelli and white bean puree, could have been a plate from Cyrus!! Pizza Margherita could have right out of Da’ Michele in
Naples. The prices are right too.
Maybe you can tell I am very excited about this place. I just heard about it this morning from two different people and just got back from a late dinner. They will serve until 10 weekdays and 11 on weekends. It reminds me of the hip small bar/restaurants that you see in Italy. The chef, Rudy, worked at Gramercy Tavern in NYC, then moved to Southern Italy after 9/11 and lived/worked there for several years.
They have been open 5 weeks, but will not fly under the radar much longer.
BiteClub has heard about Odyssey (from several of you) and made a couple of trips up, only to find it closed. Drat! They’re not open for lunch and are closed on Sunday and Monday. Stay tuned for more details. I’m on my way!
