You can increase the number of eateries in town by one, hopefully.
Pending approval from town planning and zoning, Windsor's newest restaurant is slated to pop up in what was formerly Premier Pets of the Windsor Center Plaza.
According to town documents, an application and plans have been submitted to convert half of the Premier Pets location into a take-out Chinese restaurant.
The applicant, Zhen An Li of New Britain, said the restaurant would benefit the town in that it "will attract more people to Windsor Center" by "servicing delicious Chinese food to the town!"

If approved, the new Chinese restaurant would be the sixth in a line of eateries to set their eyes on Windsor in the past year.
In a recent presentation to the town council, Town Planning and Zoning Commission Chair Anita Mips said four new businesses opened over the last year — all food establishments.
The four establishments that have opened are Izote, Popeye's, Moneta Moments and Get Baked.
The new chinese restaurant would also be the second eatery to set its eyes on Windsor Center, with Dorothy and Leroy's purchasing the old Whistle Stop location with plans of expaning its soul food operations.
According to the town, the applicant has already leased the property, which is owned by a Southbury, CT realty group, but has sent an appeal to the planning and zoning department regarding the expiration of its special use permit.
A special meeting, as requested by the applicant, has been scheduled from November 30, and will include a public hearing.
