WILTON — Winslow’s Restaurant in Wilton, first built in 1948, is entering a new era after 75 years of family ownership. Jeff Baker, grandson of the original owners, announced last week that he’s sold the business. 

“Most of you know that I got hurt last winter, I’m still not fully recovered,” Winslow wrote in a Facebook post. “The opportunity popped up to sell the restaurant, so I felt it was probably the right thing to do. The new owners are going to keep it Winslows [and] add some new dimensions.” 

Jeff Baker began working at the restaurant in 1984, according to Winslow’s website. He’s a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. He purchased the restaurant from his grandmother in 1989. 

“These past 40 years have been a real blast. There’s been a lot of ups and downs, but mostly ups,” Baker said. “I tried to keep the restaurant the way my grandparents did, and I met so many people along the way, both customers and employees, so many really good people.” 

Winslow’s Restaurant is located at 801 Saratoga Road
in Wilton.
