Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants opens first Virginia location
A new restaurant, Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant, opens today, Dec. 8, outside Short Pump Town Center at 11792 W. Broad St. in Henrico County. The 300-seat, casual-dining restaurant with a Napa-style tasting room is the company’s’ first Virginia location.
“We’re thrilled to be opening our 18th Cooper’s Hawk location in Richmond,” Matt Foody, general manager at Cooper’s Hawk, said in a statement.
The chain, which opened its first restaurant in 2005 in Chicago, now operates in seven states. The concept behind the growing chain is to offer a modern, casual-dining experience with a menu designed to pair with Cooper’s Hawk handcrafted wines.
The Short Pump location also offers a tasting room where guests can sample the company’s wines. There’s also a bar area, a private dining room and outdoor seating.
The restaurant is the second new one announced for Short Pump in recent months. Richmond restaurateur Kevin Healy said in September that he plans to open what would be his third Boathouse concept restaurant in the area in the spring.
