Cooper’s Hawk is both a winery and restaurant (need I say more?) currently located in 8 states. They opened their doors in 2005 in Orland Park, a suburb of Chicago and have made quite the expansion over the years. A few of my favorite food items are the Asian pork belly tostados, house-made meatballs, bourbon lacquered BBQ pork chop, and buttermilk chicken sandwich. This list could have been much longer as well, as I have dined at Cooper’s many times and am now a member of their wine club. Speaking of wine, joining the club provides you with many benefits including, but not limited to birthday discounts, accrual of points used for discounts on meals/wine, 1-2 bottles of wine to be picked up or delivered to your home, and a specific number of wine tastings a month. Yes, you read that right, they also have wine tastings available from open to close at each location. What is not to love?! Trust my word here. If for the vibe and sparkling almond wine alone, you will not be disappointed.
