Windsor is trendy, cozy and friendly all in one. No live entertainment: The buzz is from lively conversation. Stop by after dinner and linger over such numerically named cocktails as the No. 17 with cucumber vodka, green tea syrup, fresh cucumber and mint. Dial No. 76 for a concoction of Sauza Blanco Tequila, Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur and house blood orange sour. This one's not for the kiddies: No. 22, with lemonade, raspberry and blueberry vodkas and fresh blackberry. Want more? There's no shortage of cordials, aperitifs, wines and beers on tap and draft (try the local Four Peaks Kiltlifter Scottish Ale). Come by for brunch, Saturdays and Sundays, 9 a.m.- 1 p.m., and enjoy the Bloody Mary bar with add-your-own ingredients such as olives, onions, peppers and shots of Worcestershire sauce. If appetites flare, chow down on deviled egg dip with potato chips, picnic kebabs (skewers of chicken, shrimp, pork and veggies) and succulent pork ribs. For lounging al fresco, check out the patio.
