A popular wine and restaurant chain will soon spread its wings further across the Tampa Bay area.

Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant opens its second Tampa Bay location at 28963 SR-56 in Wesley Chapel on Monday, Nov. 20.

The concept is a destination for both foodies and wine-lovers alike, complete with a fine dining experience, wine tasting room, full-service bar and artisanal retail market.

Its upcoming Wesley Chapel location can seat a whopping 416 patrons between the indoor dining room, tasting area and outdoor patio. The  "modern artisanal" style building draws inspiration from the Sunshine State’s architectural heritage, “evoking the Florida cracker style with a take on the Georgian four-square hip-roof in the entry tower,” according to a press release.

In addition to the concept’s wide variety of wines which range from chardonnays and pinot noirs to merlots and moscato, Cooper's Hawk's  restaurant also offers a spread of classic high-end fare including entrees like surf and turf, pan-roasted mahi mahi, braised short rib risotto and gnocchi carbonara.

CEO Tim McEnery launched the first Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant in 2005 and the company now boasts over 50 locations across the country. The winery and restaurant also offers a wine club where participants pay a subscription fee in exchange for monthly bottles of wine delivered right to their doorstep, among other benefits.

There are several locations of Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant in every corner of the state in cities like Jacksonville, Fort Myers and Miami, although Wesley Chapel’s upcoming concept is Tampa Bay’s second location of the nationwide franchise.

If Wesley Chapel’s Cooper’s Hawk boasts the same operating hours as its Tampa counterpart, it will be open from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11 a.m.-10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
