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?

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.

Swap the hot grill for a cool drink and low oven

Why is it that whenever I decide to grill outdoors in New York, it turns out to be the hottest day of the century? This has occurred several times this season. Most recently, I had intended to light the coals and cook up a pile of ribs. But then I caved. Did I really want to stand over a hot fire in the scorching midday sun? It was easy to opt for...
