FIRST LOOK: You’ll forget you’re in a mall at Cooper’s Hawk


Palm Beach County has its first Cooper’s Hawk — a three-in-one dining vibe that is both luxurious and casual. If you walk into the modern-day wine-tasting experience, you’ll forget you’ve been shopping all day. You’ll go from messy racks at H&M to an intimate lunch that makes you feel like you’re in wine country. 

The restaurant opened to the public Monday at the Gardens Mall. And here's why you'll love Cooper’s Hawk as a go-to getaway dining experience.

1. THE WINE

One word. Handcrafted. Cooper’s Hawk is not only a restaurant, it’s a winery that produces more than 600k gallons of the good stuff each year. Spending time with knowledgeable staff in the Napa-style tasting room will turn any casual walk-in into a “Girls Day” memory. Steel-aged Chardonnay. Rich Malbec. Need we say more? View the wine catalog here.

2. THE SPACE

Too hot on the outside patio? Ask one of the waiters to adjust the roof so you can get more shade. The patio has a modern but rustic decor, so modern-chic it’ll make you adjust your posture. 

3. THE MENU

The menu is wide-ranging and flexible. Have a craving or food preference that's off the menu? Order it. Chances are the chef will make it for you.

Shrimp and grits, rendered healthful and Italian? We're in.

Polenta and grits are not exactly the same. But they are close cousins, both made from medium-to-coarsely ground corn that cooks into a creamy, satisfying bed for a saucy entree. One of the pairings for the cornmeal porridge is as iconic as "milk and cookies" and "peanut butter and jelly" - namely, shrimp and grits. Once I get that...

Pluck a zucchini from a vine in the backyard then transform it to a plateful of fritters for supper, and the chin tilts a bit with pride.
