Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurants, an Illinois-based lifestyle brand centered around food and wine, will open a Troy location on Monday. This is the third location in Michigan. The restaurant will include a wine tasting area, a full bar, a dining room, private dining spaces, and retail space.
Located at 151 E. Big Beaver Rd. (east of Livernois Road), the 12,341-square-foot space was designed with California’s wine country in mind. It includes neutral tones, exposed wood, and Napa-inspired artwork and design pieces. An outdoor dining space will also open in the summer. The location will be able to seat up to 339 people, with 48 seats at the bar and 56 seats on the patio.
Guests can also join the Wine Club, which has 450,000 members who enjoy limited production wines each month, travel and dining experiences, and more.
Patrick Price will lead the Troy location’s culinary team. He will work with Matt McMillin, executive chef, to offer a contemporary American menu with international flavors. Each dish is listed with a bin number that tells guests which wine pairs best. Gluten free options, a kids’ menu, carryout, and catering are also available.
Popular dishes include Mexican drunken shrimp, Asian pork belly tostadas, and soy ginger steak.
“We’ve had our sights set on the Troy community since we opened our first location in Michigan a few years ago,” says Tim McEnery, founder and CEO. “We believe that food and wine bring people together and build lasting connections and are excited for forge great connections here.”
Cooper’s Hawk was founded in 2005, and it is slated to have 50 locations by the end of the year. It has received more than 500 wine awards and imports grapes from around the world to produce more than 40 varietals.
The Troy location will be open from 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-10:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday, and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday.
