Sonoma County fans of sumptuous fried chicken and barbecue can rejoice: Sweet T’s has just reopened in Windsor. Owners Dennis and Ann Tussey relocated their popular restaurant and bar from Fountaingrove Village in Santa Rosa, where it had been a neighborhood favorite for the past seven years.

While customers waited for the shiny new 3,500 square foot space to debut in in Windsor’s Lakewood Village, they posted loving messages on Sweet T’s social media.

“We can hardly wait!” wrote one Windsor resident. “We walk by almost daily with our little dog, Katie, just to see how things are going.” Another eager customer wrote, The whole family is super excited to celebrate with you!!! And I am SUPER excited for my Georgia Peach martinis!”

The new Sweet T’s keeps most of its New Orleans and Southern-inspired menu, but works with a new wood fired grill. Folks can feast on signatures like a trio combo of ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket, pulled chicken, tri-tip and/or house made pork sausage link with two sides and a biscuit; Cajun gumbo with shrimp, smoked chicken, Andouille sausage, veggies and rice; or that crispy fried chicken with smashed potatoes, slaw and a biscuit.

Fried catfish is great, too, basted in creole mustard and Louisiana hot sauce, and served with French fries, coleslaw and tartar sauce. Even with all that food, you’ll want appetizers, too, such as hushpuppies spread with honey butter, spicy peel and eat shrimp, and stone ground cheese grits.

The original Sweet T’s was famous for its cocktails, and the new one brings them back. The Sazerac is "New Orleans’ Own," blending Sazerac Rye Whiskey, Peychauds Bitters, St. George Absinthe a sugar cube, and lemon zest, while that beloved Georgia Peach martini unites Georgia Peach Vodka, peach puree, orange juice and sparkling white wine.
