Cooper's Hawk will open on the Plaza this fall

Coopers Hawk has set its sights on the Plaza.
Oenophiles, this one's for you. Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant will open this fall in the former 810 Zone space at 4686 Broadway on the Plaza.

Every item on the menu comes with a suggested wine pairing, and next to the dining room is a "Napa-style" wine tasting room, as well as a retail gift shop where the winery's various vintages (which you had just been drinking with dinner) are sold. This is the first location for the Illinois-based chain in Missouri or Kansas.

The menu reads like a Cheesecake Factory cousin - if you can't find something to eat here, you're better off staying home. There are some Asian influences (blackened Ahi tuna, pot stickers, Thai chicken flatbread), Italian dishes (gnocchi pomodoro, eggplant ravioli, caprese panini) and a few pages of burgers, chopped salads, seafood and steak options. In what may mark a coming trend, there are also designated gluten-free options: Mexican drunken shrimp (bacon-wrapped shrimp in a tequila lime butter sauce) and Thai lettuce wraps. For those who are looking to try Cooper's Hawk wine, the space holds walk-up tastings and will have a wine club.

The first Cooper's Hawk opened in Orland Park, Illinois, in 2005. The restaurant chain has grown to eight locations with three more expected to open this year.

Has anyone been to a Cooper's Hawk?
