Sharing My Recipes, My Life, And The Food Tale Of Two Cities

Cooper’s Hawk-Orlando

We recently celebrated Steve’s daughter, Jessica’s birthday at Copper’sHawkWinery and Restaurant. Cooper’s Hawk has two locations in Orlando, one at 8005 International Dr. and the location we visited at 529  N. Alafaya Trail, or visit www.chwinery.com.

This location was nestled in a large shopping complex that’s in the style of an outdoor mall, with an eclectic variety of restaurants, shops, and a movie cineplex.  Here’s a peek into Cooper’s Hawk.

When you enter, you see the wine bar that offers the tastings. All around you are beautiful displays of wine, accessories, and a dessert case filled with chocolate covered strawberries, and chocolate truffles that would be awesome to pair with a dessert wine. The dining room is open and spacious with a contemporary decor.

The menu offers a suggestive wine pairing to go with the dish of your choice.  The Roasted Vegetable Flatbread with Goat Cheese and a Balsamic Glaze was delicious. I chose the Chicken Saltimbocca with Asparagus and Artichokes. My favorite was the Bruschetta with Burrata, Prosciutto, Arugula, and  Balsamic Glaze. That dish went so fast, I wasn’t able to get a picture fast enough!

Happy Birthday Jessica, and thank you for sharing this special night with your father and me.

Vines Grille & Wine Bar

Vines Grille And Wine Bar (3)

In Orlando, we call it “Restaurant Row”. Located on West Sand Lake Road, are some of the best restaurants Orlando has to offer. These restaurants are not located in a theme park, nor are located on International Drive, know to tourists. They’re just conveniently located close enough, where “the locals” can get dressed up, take a 20-30 minute drive, and enjoy some great dining. Vines Grille and Wine Bar offer “high end” steaks, prime rib, and an extensive wine collection. Not to mention, they have live Jazz and Blues music. Located at 7533 W. Sandlake Rd. Orlando, Fl. 32819. For more information visit their website at www.vinesgrille.com.
