cooper’s hawk winery and restaurant

One of the benefits of my job is lunch with vendors. It’s a chance to talk business, develop a working relationship, and try new places to eat. Today we tried Cooper’s Hawk, a winery and restaurant in Naperville Il. My boss and I were treated to an excellent meal, and better company.

I think I’m going to like this place….

I rarely favor sweeter white wine, but Cooper’s sangria is excellent. I especially enjoy the apple slices that have been soaking in the wine. To me sangria is just fun.

I had a cup of the lobster bisque, and my boss had a beautifully presented tuna

They had reduced portion lunches, and I opted for the atlantic salmon sevrved on a bed of kale and sliced potatoes with tomato. Delicious.


They had chocolate covered strawberries and truffles on the dessert menu, but maybe next time. Time to start my diet 🙂

    Salmon is always a good choice. Yum. My husband and I try to have salmon once or twice a week. Of course, I’m cooking it…it looks better served…with lovely linens!

      I like eating out, when I am in Chicago by myself I just can’t get motivated to cook.

      It gets expensive though. Usually I pick restaurants I haven’t tried when vendors from work want to do lunch or dinner.
