In food news this week, Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurants finally arrives in Chicago after taking over the previous Del Frisco's Restaurant Group space at 58 E. Oak Street.

Cooper's Hawk grew from humble beginnings in Illinois to eventually launch stores nationwide with over 30 locations. The chain has a central location for wine production in Woodridge, Illinois.

The Chicago location is stacked vertically with elevators, escalators and stairs to manage in the process. Beautiful chandeliers and a modern decor have elevated an establishment in a space that is simply breathtaking.

While the space won't have room to produce wines, there are other advantages such as a three story wine tower and open kitchen. That kitchen offers a massive menu to diners including ahi tuna tacos, a variety of flatbreads, grilled chicken caesar salads and churrascho grilled steak. This paired with LVE Wines presented by John Legend will make you sing, thanks to a smooth finish.

Start making a reservation at before the place fills up for the holidays.

A joint promotional campaign called the Icons of European Taste was hosted at a recent dinner at Nico Osteria prepared by Chef Tim Graham.
